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.

Need a weekend pick-me-up? You'll be inspired by these 'Glam-mas'!
The ‘Fashion Grandmas’ known as 'Glam-mas' are a group of influencers over 60 who are showing China that age is no barrier to elegance. They do fashion live-streams, share positive messages about ageing, and speak out about domestic violence.
"Your life is grey if you are always afraid of ageing and death," said Lin Wei, 64, explaining her philosophy on growing older and enthusiasm for donning stylish clothes and makeup.
"You are old, you have wrinkles, you don't have too much energy, or your figure becomes baggy. But this is something you can't go against, so you need to face it with positivity."
