Age Care – Understanding the intricacies of Aged Care Facilities

The toughest and most challenging decision in front of everyone is to judge the right time for the older ones to move into an age care. While it is never an easy decision, most of them plan to finally take a decision when they know that it is practically impossible to provide the required care and support to their loved one all by themselves. The first step in this transition is usually done by providing nursing care in their home per week. However, some of them have health conditions for which they need 24 hour assistance by professionally trained staff.
Once you know that the best place which can guarantee health, safety and wellbeing for your loved ones is the age care facility, then you mostly likely decide for permanent age care. Undoubtedly, taking care of someone having challenging conditions like dementia or Alzheimer’s can be exhausting and emotionally tough. Residential age care facilities can easily provide round the clock assistance for the elderly person’s situation and provide dementia-specific facilities. No matter how comfortable a nursing home looks, all might not appeal positively to the person moving in. Residential Gardens provides a homely atmosphere for all its residents where we provide assistance to choose life interests that excite the residents and provides optimal enjoyment throughout the stay. We have built a reputation for providing the highest standards of care and support facilities in a warm and caring environment.
Before you plan for an age care home, the person who needs care needs to have an assessment done which is referred to as ACAT assessment. You need to have this assessment to be eligible for any age care home. During the assessment, one or two members of the ACAT team will visit you and go through the activities for which your loved ones need support and assistance. Based on the condition and need, basically there are three broad choices for anyone i.e. Home Care, Respite Care and Residential Aged Care.
