Frequently Asked Questions
What is the process and what is an ACAT assessment?
To live in a Residential Aged Care Facility, a person must first consult and be assessed by a member of your local Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). This is a health care professional in the area of Senior’s Care. The ACAT assessment is provided by the Government free of charge.
An ACAT assessment is an evaluation by a member of your local Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). ACAT is responsible for deciding who is eligible for placement in an Aged Care Facility and if you are entitled to received subsidised Aged Care. The assessment involves investigating a person’s mental, physical and social situation.
You may contact ACAT directly by visiting http://www.myagedcare.gov.au for contact details of your local ACAT, or the Aged Care Information Line on 1800 200 422. Your local doctor may also assist you in arranging an ACAT assessment.
Once you have been assessed, the ACAT will provide you with an Aged Care Client Record (ACCR) and you are ready to find a Residential Aged Care Facility that suits your needs and requirements.
If you already have an ACCR, because you were assessed to receive care in your home, please talk to the friendly staff at The Shoreline who will determine if this same assessment is suitable for entry into residential care.
What are the financial considerations?
It is important to understand all the fees involved with moving into a Residential Aged Care Facility. You may wish to talk to an accountant or a financial advisor who specialises in Aged Care to receive advice in relation to these costs and your specific situation.
The cost to a resident of staying at The Shoreline Residential Care will vary depending on your individual circumstances. Many residents are eligible for Government subsidies to help cover the cost of care and accommodation. The fees incurred for a resident will include:
Daily Care Fees & Means Tested Care Fees
The Daily Care Fees contribute towards your daily living costs such as meals, linen and laundry and nursing and care assistance.
There are two parts to the Daily Care Fee:
- A Basic Daily Fee (set by the Federal Government) applies to all residents of Aged Care Facilities; and
- An additional Means Tested Care Fee for residents who have higher income and asset levels. The Means Tested Care Fee is calculated by the Government based on an evaluation of your income and assets. There are annual and lifetime caps on the Means Tested Care Fee and once the cap is reached, you cannot be asked to pay any more Means Tested Care Fees.
Extra Service Fee or Additional Services Fee
This is an additional fee payable for superior levels of comfort and lifestyle and activities offered, as well as the luxury standard of accommodation and superior levels of meals and beverages available at The Shoreline.
You will pay Accommodation Payments if your assets exceed an amount set by the Federal Government. The accommodation payment must be agreed with The Shoreline prior to entry and is a payment towards the cost of your accommodation. It is paid in addition to the Daily Care Fees. The Accommodation Payment amount will depend on the size and the location of the room within The Shoreline Residence. There are several different rooms including some for couples.
Accommodation Payments can be paid by:
- Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) – a lump sum payment;
- Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) which accrues daily and is paid periodically together with your Daily Care Fees;
- a combination of both RAD and DAP; and
- deduction of the DAP from a partially paid RAD.
Please contact us to obtain more detailed information on the fees and charges at The Shoreline. You may also visit the Government website www.myagedcare.gov.au
