In Residential Care, UPA’s aim is to provide a well-maintained, comfortable home-like environment with experienced caring staff who can address a residents individual needs.
Residential Aged Care in Australia is subsidised by the Commonwealth Government and is governed by the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act). The Department plays a vital role in developing policies, managing programmes and providing regulatory services to improve the quality of residential aged care in Australia. To enter Australian Government subsidised residential care, a person must first be approved as a care recipient. In order to determine a person’s eligibility and care needs, an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment must be undertaken. Once the assessment has been completed, a member of an ACAT team will advise of how to access the residential care services that are available to you. You may like to ask a family member, friend of carer to sit in with you on the assessment for a little extra support.
You can also contact My Aged Care (www.myagedcare.gov.au) which is an Australian Government website and phone line to help you find out what aged care services may be available to help you. They can be contacted by telephone on 1800 200 422 and you will be asked questions over the phone to help you work out your needs and care arrangements. ( © My Aged Care)

You may want to consult with a financial adviser about your finances. There are various government services and resources that can help you obtain appropriate advice. It’s a good idea to do some research to see what options work best for you. (© My Aged Care)
