Assessment

If you’re thinking about moving in to residential care, the first step is to have your needs assessed. A member of an ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) will meet with you to discuss your current needs and to help you work out what options are available to you.

Undergoing an assessment does not mean you are obliged to enter residential care – it is merely the first step in identifying what your needs are and how they might be met. We encourage a family member or friend to be present during the assessment – it’s always good to have someone close to you to talk things through.

Your doctor can help you arrange an assessment – or you can arrange one yourself by contacting an Aged Care Assessment Team in your area – call 1300 22 44 77 for more details

After the Assessment

Following the assessment, you will receive a letter to let you know if you are eligible for Australian Government subsidised aged care services. The letter will advise what sort of services you’re eligible for, and why.

Once your ACAT Assessment is completed, please contact ACH Group’s Residential Admissions Team on (08) 8159 3530 or via email [email protected] to discuss what option is right for you and to receive an information pack.  Alternatively, you can download and complete an application pack, or use the form below to request an application pack be sent to you.  Once your application is completed, we will register your interest for a place at the home of your choice.  We will then contact you when a vacancy becomes available, but please advise us if your situation changes.

What does your Monday afternoon usually look like? For Su, an international student at TAFE SA, it is a time dedicated to volunteering at Healthia Residential Care Home. Su’s creativity and origami skills are well admired by the residents. With origami, you start with a blank piece of paper, and it is up to your intention and skill what you create. It is, in a way, a fitting analogy to describe volunteering.

Su added that she believes if you have a warm heart and a big smile, you have everything you need to start.

Su, you are a true inspiration to many of us at ACH Group. Thank you for connecting with residents through the art of origami, bringing extra kindness and gentleness into their life. 🙌

Thank you for filming me. I’m visiting on Monday because I don’t have a class. So, I became a “Monday girl” 😄 I hope more people will enjoy volunteer work by sharing my story. 💕
