Choosing the Right Care
If you feel it is time to look at receiving some help with daily living, there is a variety of options open to you.
Whether it is support that enables you to continue living at home, a short-term stay, or you no longer feel able to live independently, UPA can help.
The Australian Government’s My Aged Care site has a useful step-by-step guide to help you decide what’s right for you, and to access government-funded aged care services. You can use it to discuss your needs and find out if you need an assessment. If you do, a member of your local Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) team will arrange to meet at your home for a free face-to-face assessment.
Following the assessment, you will be advised which services you are approved to receive. You can then look at local service providers and options convenient for you. Apply for an aged care assessment | My Aged Care
