YOUR DECISION

STEP BY STEP GUIDE

Before moving to The Alexander, you will need to go through the following steps.

STEP ONE

You will need an assessment by the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS).

 

A member of an ACAS will discuss your current situation and the available care options with you. Your Doctor can assist with arranging an assessment, or you can arrange directly by calling 1800 200 422 or at www.myagedcare.gov.au ACAS assessments are provided free by the Australian Government.

 

There may be wait of a few weeks for assessments, so it’s best to organise this as early as possible.

STEP TWO

A Centrelink/ DVA assessment. The government requires those who can afford to contribute towards their care to do so. Accordingly, every person entering into aged care must have an income and assets assessment.

 

You will need to fill out the Permanent Residential Aged Care – Request for a Combined Assets and Income Assessment form (SA457). How much you pay depends on your financial situation, and there are strong protections in place to make sure that care is affordable for everyone.

 

This assessment will determine if a consumer qualifies for a government supported place or will need to pay an additional Means Tested Care Fee.

 

For more information contact Centrelink on 132 300 or My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to help you estimate the fees and charges that may be appropriate to you.

OUR AGREEMENT FOR RESIDENTIAL CARE

Before you move into The Alexander you will be offered a Consumer Agreement covering things like services, fees, rights and responsibilities. The Consumer Agreement is a legally binding document.

OUR FEES & CHARGES

The Australia Government pays for the majority of aged care fees in Australia but you may be asked to contribute to the cost of your care if you can afford to.

 

Consumers with the financial means will be required to pay accommodation payments in the form of a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a combination of both.

 

Consumers without financial means ie assets may be asked to make a small contribution to their care.
