Support every step of the way

When it’s time to begin looking for the right aged care home, we can assist you through the process.


Step 1 – Complete an Aged Care Assessment

Call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to arrange an ACAT assessment. This will help to determine your needs and eligibility to receive funding towards the cost of care.

As it may take between 2-6 weeks to receive your assessment, now is a good time to start shortlisting homes you’re interested in.


Step 2 – Work out any contributions

It’s important to understand the payment options and subsidies available when it comes to residential aged care.

If you are looking for a permanent home, you’ll also need to complete a financial assessment with Services Australia to determine how much you may need to contribute towards your accommodation.


Step 3 – Find your home

Finding the right home can be a big decision. We’d love you to take a tour of a Bolton Clarke home and talk with our residential manager about your specific care needs and what matters to you most.

As a resident you’ll have access to our dedicated team, all working together to support your wellbeing.


Step 4 – Apply for admission

When you have found your preferred home and received your assessment from My Aged Care it’s time to complete your application for entry into residential aged care.

Simply contact our friendly admissions team on 1300 22 11 22 and we can guide you through the process including any of the documentation you will need.


Step 5 – Seek advice

Before signing an agreement to enter residential aged care, it’s a good idea for you to seek independent advice from a specialised aged care financial advisor. As an impartial advisor, they can guide you on the best payment options and arrangements for your individual circumstances.


Step 6 – Move and settle in

When it’s time to move into your new Bolton Clarke home, we’ll work with you and your family to settle in and personalise your home.

Our team will help you with the transition, with services and activities centred around your needs, interests, abilities and choices.

Need help?
