Residential Aged Care – Introduction to the Entry Procedure

Residential Aged Care is the proper term for facilities which are commonly referred to as nursing homes.  Residential aged care facilities provide 24 hour care by trained nursing staff for frail elderly people who can no longer live independently in their own homes. Residential Gardens is one of Australia’s largest and most experienced providers of residential aged care. Our teams of highly trained staff and dedicated volunteers are passionate about providing the highest quality care possible. All of our residential care facilities provide 24 hour nursing care, individual care plans and tailored therapy services, along with great dining and social activities to cater to every resident’s needs.

There are five vital points to remember which facilitate entry into a residential aged care home.

  • Before you can apply for residential aged care services, you will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
  • Once you have been assessed, you will need to make an appointment with the Care Manager which mainly focuses on your requirements, needs, preferences and to address your questions.
  • Your financial costs are calculated and discussed upon.
  • You will need to complete our application form and submit it to the Care Manager to be processed.
  •  We appreciate that moving can be stressful at times, but we are here to help make the process as smooth and simple as possible.

Residential Gardens offers hospital care, residential care and community services throughout NSW. We offer a range of services for older people who cannot live independently at home and require low, high or dementia care in a residential facility.
