Admission Requirements

ACAT Assessment

Prior to admission, residents and clients are required to be assessed, approved and have the appropriate documentation completed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). These assessments can be arranged by contacting My Aged Care (ph:1800 200 422 or www.myagedcare.gov.au) through Yass Valley Aged Care (02) 62263090; your local GP; or Community Health.

For admission a full medical and social history will be required to ensure future care and activities will be appropriate for the individual resident or client.

Financial Requirements (see Menu: Fees and Charges also)

“Everyone moving into an aged care home for the first time from 1 July 2014 will need to have their income and assets assessed by the Australian Government Department of Human Services (Centrelink) or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs if they want to receive government assistance with their care and accommodation costs. This assessment will be used to determine the costs you could be asked to pay and the amount of government assistance you will receive for your aged care costs and accommodation costs” (www.myagedcare.gov.au/aged-care-homes-costs-explained).

Asset and Income Assessment Forms are available from Centrelink or Yass Valley Aged Care Admissions Manager.
