HOW TO ACCESS HOME CARE PACKAGES
- If you have higher care needs and are considering accessing home care, you will first need to contact My Aged Care by calling 1800 200 422 or going to www.myagedcare.gov.au
- If your care needs indicate you might need a Home Care Package, My Aged Care will refer you to an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT, ACAS in Victoria) to complete an assessment. This assessment will identify whether you have high or low-level care needs.
- ACATs cover all of Australia and are based in hospitals and in the local community.
- An ACAT member will talk to you about your current situation and assess and approve your eligibility to receive Australian Government-subsidised aged care services. These assessments are free.
- It is important to know that your preferences will always be considered, and you do not need to make any decisions about your future during your assessment.
- You are welcome to have someone else—perhaps a friend, family member or your carer—attend your assessment for extra support.
- Don’t forget to tell them, you would like services provided by integratedliving!
