The aged care entry process

Arranging entry into residential aged care can be a little overwhelming. We can assist with the application process and answer any of your questions as you navigate through the aged care system.

Your loved one will need to be assessed. The Government’s My Aged Care Service will refer you to the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). The team will make their assessment and then put approvals in place for your loved one to enter residential aged care. For more information call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.

FAQS

What is residential aged care?

Residential aged care is for elderly people who can no longer live independently at home. Residents living in residential aged care receive accommodation, 24 hour on-site nursing care, meals, as well as assistance with daily domestic tasks and personal care.  

At HillView Care we want all of our residents to feel at home and you decide how you are cared for. We are here to support your physical and emotional needs, but encourage all our residents to remain as independent as possible.
