Whether you are needing a little extra help, require 24-hour care or are just exploring the options available for your future here are a few things you need to know to help you get started.
Private In-Home Care
You can contact Dignified Home Care for private in-home care without needing to contact My Aged Care or receive an ACAT assessment if you are self-funding your care.
My Aged Care
Before taking any steps to receive government-funded aged care services in Australia, you will need to register with My Aged Care. The sooner this process is underway the better as the process of registering and receiving an assessment can take some time. Approval for in-home packages can take 12-18 months. There are interim packages available in some circumstances. Let us know if we can be of assistance in learning more about government funding.
Once you are registered and receive an assessment through My Aged Care you will learn if you are eligible for funding or services from the Australian Government. Beginning this process sooner rather than later will enable you to access the services you require as easily and quickly as possible.
Choosing your home care service
With an abundance of options in aged care now is the time to discover the best fit for you! If staying in your family home is important to you, with in-home care you have the freedom and comfort of adapting with additional support as your needs change. Whether you require a little support or 24-hour care finding a home care provider that is the best fit for you is important.
