Five Steps for Entry into Holmwood Aged Care
If you are considering moving a loved one into an aged care home, it’s important to understand the process. To help you get started, below is a guide for entering into Holmwood Aged Care.
Are They Eligible?
Your loved one may be eligible for Australian Government subsidised care in an aged care home if they are a mature aged person who can no longer live independently in their own home. To find out if your loved one is eligible, they will need an assessment.
Undertake an Assessment
For a free assessment, contact a member of an Aged Care Assessment Services (ACAS) to determine their eligibility. A nurse, social worker or other health professionals usually undertakes this at the individual’s home. To find a local ACAS member, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
This assessment is also required for respite care.
If a letter is received confirming eligibility, it will also include a support plan and what services they can receive. The support plan will include a unique referral code that is to be provided to Holmwood Aged Care.
