Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) requirements
Anyone wanting to receive aged care services requires an assessment as a starting point. Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACAT) are teams of medical and allied health professionals who assess the physical, psychological, medical, restorative, cultural and social needs of the older person. ACAT assessments are provided free of charge. A referral from a GP is not needed.
To arrange for an assessment contact My Aged Care via their website myagedcare.gov.au or by phoning 1800 200 422.
Australian Government requirements
The Australian Government Department of Human Services or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs need details about your combined assets and income for permanent residential aged care purposes.
The information that you provide will be used to calculate your aged care fees and charges and whether you qualify for additional Government assistance with your accommodation costs.
