Call My Aged Care
To help you get the most out of your call with My Aged Care, we’ve put together a checklist of items you’ll need on hand. If you are calling for someone else, they will need to give their consent.
Identify your individual needs
An ACAT assessor, who is an experienced clinician, will visit you at home to discuss your personal circumstances and recommend the right support for you. With your consent they will assess your care needs and eligibility for services that address your needs, goals and preferences.
My Aged Care will send you a confirmation letter
You will receive a letter of approval to let you know whether you are eligible and approved to receive a home care package, and at what level. You will then be placed in a national priority queue and be contacted when a suitable package becomes available for you. Your position in the queue will be based on your needs and circumstances as well as the time you have spent waiting for care.
