Before you can access government-subsidised aged care services for the first time, you need to apply for an assessment.
Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACAT) assess older persons to assist them to gain access to the most appropriate Australian Government subsidised aged care services. The assessment identifies eligibility and approvals for packages of care to assist the person to remain in his/her own home or for respite or permanent care in a residential facility. The person has the choice as to whether he/she wishes to access the home care package, residential respite or permanent care once approved.
It’s the same form to apply for all types of care and support, including help at home, short term care, and care in our aged care home. You can complete the application yourself or on behalf of a family member or friend. If you need care immediately due to unforeseen circumstances, please call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
