Am I ready to enter aged care?
To find out if you are eligible to move into an aged care home you will need to meet with a member of the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
ACAT members are usually a doctor, social worker or other heath professional and they will arrange a time to visit you to discuss how you’re managing day-to-day.
If you need day-to-day assistance and clinical care provided in residential aged care, they may assess that you are eligible for a place in an aged care home.
If your carer is away or needing a break, ACAT may conclude that you are eligible for government financial help so you can access respite care in a residential aged care home for a short-term stay.
If you are able to stay in your home but need in-home support services they may also assess that you are eligible for a home care package.
