What’s an ACAT assessment?
An Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment looks at what level of care you need and if you are eligible for government financial support.
The ACAT member will visit you and ask some questions about your health needs and lifestyle, including your physical and psychological needs, social needs and special needs. This information will be used to help determine your best care option, such as home care or residential care.
You can have a family member, friend or carer with you during your ACAT Assessment.
