Aged care Sydney – Moving in Checklist

Moving into an Aged care Sydney facility can be stressful if things are not planned well. However with a moving in checklist one can ensure that their move is easy and hassle free. The Department of Health has released a comprehensive guide which is designed for seniors to help them guide through the process of accessing care in Aged care Sydney.

Once you have moved into an aged care Sydney facility, you should inform your family and friends, carers and neighbours if not done already. You also need to keep your doctor, pharmacist, community nurse in loop and ensure you have the medical history and current medical treatments and medication noted down somewhere.

You would also need to let various Government agencies like Dept. of Veteran Affairs, Department of Human Services, Medicare, Taxation office, local council, local post office etc. know about your move to an Aged care Sydney facility. For finances and insurance, please keep your health insurance, superannuation company and bank informed about the move.
