The Australian aged care system can seem quite daunting for anyone who is not familiar with all the key terms, acronyms and services, or the steps required to access services. That’s where we’re here to help.
While we offer a range of services on a on a competitive privately funded basis, you may be eligible for government assistance towards the costs of these. We can help you navigate the aged care system to find out about your eligibility for government funding.
To receive government assistance, you will need to undergo an assessment. The assessment is conducted by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). The results of this assessment will determine your eligibility for a Home Care Package and the most appropriate funding level for your circumstances. We can arrange for a free assessment by the ACAT on your behalf.
The ACAT assessment is completed through the federal government’s My Aged Care website and we can help you navigate your way through this online process.
During your assessment, a list of registered service providers offering home care services will be made available to you. It is at this point that you can UCWB if you wish for us to provide services to you.
