About Aged Care

Aged care homes are owned and run by organisations who are approved by the Australian Government to care for older people. The aged care system in Australia aims to make sure that all older people can receive support and quality care when they need it.

Please note that an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment is required prior to entry into any residential aged care facility in Australia.

An ACAT can:

  • Give you information about aged care homes in your area.
  • Assess and approve your eligibility for an aged care home.
  • Help you arrange residential respite care, like short stays in aged care homes, if needed.
  • Answer any other questions you might have about the types of aged care homes.
