Eligibility - Baptistcare Residential Care

Eligibility

Am I eligible for Residential Care?

To find out if you are eligible for residential aged care you need to have an assessment from an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT), who are health professionals such as doctors, nurses and social workers.

Visit Our Facilities

They will visit you and ask questions about your lifestyle and health needs. You will receive an Aged Care Client Record (ACCR) that will let you know if you are eligible for the following types of accommodation:

  • Respite – if you need a place to stay while you recover from an operation or to give your home caregiver a break if you normally are cared for at home.
  • Residential – because of your health or life stage, the time may be right to move into permanent accommodation. We cater for all levels of care, so you can usually stay in the same place if your needs change. This is known as ‘ageing in place’.
  • Dementia enriched living – most of our facilities provide safe and comfortable accommodation to meet the specific needs of people who have dementia.

Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT)

ACATs are funded by the Australian Government and the assessment is free of charge. To find an ACAT in your local area visit the My Aged Care website at www.myagedcare.gov.au. You can contact an ACAT directly, or your doctor or local hospital can provide a referral to your local ACAT.
