Register Interest/Admissions

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 residentialplacements@ach.org.au 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.

Meet Jodie Roberts – ACH Group's Dementia Co-Design Manager who has been with ACH Group for 13 years.

Jodie loves that her role makes a difference in the quality of life for a person living with dementia and their carers. Her workday includes providing dementia behaviour support services at ACH Group's residential care homes, educating staff and families about best practice dementia care, and designing training content that is evidence-based, leading-edge and engaging.

Jodie shared, "I am extremely fortunate to work very closely with our customers, their families, and staff which keeps me connected to the experiences people have in residential care. I am then able to share their experiences with colleagues so that we can co-design products and services that meet those needs."

One thing about Jodie you may not know is she is an absolute car enthusiast, in particular Holden's and early model Commodores. Jodie and her husband belong to an SA car club and both drive matching white early Commodore station wagons!

What a wonderful way to start the week!
Every Monday morning, Tai Chi enthusiast Brian leads a class for fellow residents at ACH Group's St Georges Court retirement living community. Tai Chi is a moving meditation and features slowed down martial arts movements.
Brian and his wife have practiced and taught Tai Chi for 20 years, and after residents saw them practicing in their front yard the idea was sparked for classes to take place in St Georges' community hub. Brian said a core group of about 12 from St Georges and neighbouring retirement living communities attend the sessions.
“Everyone in the session is really enjoying it. There are wonderful health benefits that come with Tai Chi - improving mobility, balance and general fitness,” he said. “The classes are free, I’m passionate about doing something for our community, and when the COVID-19 restrictions allow, we all enjoy a cup of tea after.”
