Age care

why should you consult with ofter services/personnel when determining the correct program of care and support for the older person

Hi traceybanks44@h,Everybodys care needs are different and can be complex as a person ages which is why an ACAT assessment is compulsory if a person wishes to access government funded care. The ACAT is a very thorough assessment of a persons physical, psychological, social and cultural needs and then provides you with a report as to the services that will best support your care needs.If you are assessed as eligible for a Home Care package then your package provider will organise (in consultation with you) the relevant services you require ie everything from garden maintenance, cleaning through to nursing, personal care and allied health etc.For all the same reasons you also require an ACAT assessment to be eligible to enter a government subsidised residential aged care home.Regar
