We understand the process of entry into Residential Aged Care can be very daunting for residents and families. Below are some suggestions on assisting with making the move into Residential Aged Care as smooth a process as possible.
If you require urgent support please call 1300 232 564 or your local RSL LifeCare Aged Care home for assistance.
Entry into an Aged Care Home is only possible after an Aged Care Assessment has been completed. This assessment is done by a person appointed by the government and can take 4 – 6 weeks.
Once you have been assessed, there are many different homes available. We would recommend visiting a few different Aged Care homes and finding one you feel more comfortable with. Ensure you have an understanding of the costs associated with your preferred home. The various costs can be complicated and some people take advantage of independent aged care specific advice.
