Documents & Links

Applicants will be required to undertake assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). This can be organised by contacting your local ACAT team directly. The Aged Care Assessment Team will give you an Aged Care Client Record which will need to be bought with you to initial application discussions.

Applicants will need to complete an application for residential aged care.

Completion of the Permanent Residential Aged Care Request for a Combined Assets and Income Assessment form is required to determine potential fees and charges. Please note the wait time for return of this assessment can take a number of weeks so it is important this is completed as soon as possible.

Residents should make an appointment with their GP to complete a medication profile which lists medical history and current medications. It is important this list has been updated with all recent changes to medications.
