Have you been advised to find a Residential Aged Care Facility? Or maybe you are just thinking about it but don’t really know where to start? We have prepared a 5 Steps Guide to assist you.
Basic fees are set by the Department of Social Services.
For anyone entering care for the first time from 1st July 2014 onwards, the fees and charges have changed. You may be asked to pay a Residential Aged Deposit, or a Daily Accommodation Payment or a combination of both. Please visit the locations tab above and/or contact any of our facilities and talk to the friendly support team.
Finding the right home can be stressful and confusing.
We generally recommend families look at aprox, 3 different facilities, before making a decision. There are lots of things you should look for and questions that you need to ask.
Once you choose a home, the next step is moving in.
To help with settling-in, we suggest that you prepare the room in advance with the addition of a few personal items from home such as family photographs, a favourite picture, and maybe a favourite doona cover. Clothing can also be brought in and we will apply name tags, free of charge.
