5 Steps to Residential Aged Care

The Garden Club Port Macquarie Aged Care

Step One

Book a tour of Garden Village to see if our lifestyle, accommodation and location suits your health and wellbeing needs.

Step Two

Organise an ACAT Assessment
This free assessment takes place at your home to establish the level of care required for individuals entering Aged Care. Your local GP can assist with arranging an assessment, or contact your regional ACAT team. There is often a wait of a few weeks for assessments, so it is best to organise this as early as possible.

Step Three

Organise an Assets and Income Assessment
Every person entering aged care, including those applying for a financially supported place, must have an assets and income assessment. This assessment determines if you qualify for a government supported place or will pay an additional Means Tested Care Fee. It’s important to make sure your income and assets are up to date when entering into care to ensure your assessment can be completed automatically.

Step Four
