You can organise an ACAT assessment through your GP, hospital, or by calling My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.

My Aged Care will take your details and send them through to an ACAT assessor (known as Aged Care Assessment Team).

The ACAT assessor will make a time to visit you at your home (or if you’re in hospital), to talk about how you’re managing and if you need some assistance.

ACAT assessors are usually nurses, social workers or health care workers, so they have a wealth of experience and are very understanding.
