Aged care placement - aged care homes

While each family situation has a different set of requirements, there are a number of standard questions that seem to be asked by our family clients. We hope the answers provided here will help you in your aged care placement activities.

What are the main types of aged care homes?

Low level Care

Low-level care is for people who need some help, but do not have very complex ongoing care needs.

Low care includes:

accommodation-related services furnishings, bedding, general laundry, some toiletries, cleaning services, all meals, maintenance of buildings and grounds, and the provision of staff on call to provide emergency assistance, and

personal care services assistance with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, going to the toilet, eating, dressing, moving around, maintaining continence or managing incontinence, rehabilitation support, and assistance in obtaining health and therapy services.

High care residents must be provided with additional items, care and services such as:

Nursing services and equipment, such as equipment to assist with mobility, continence aids, basic medical and pharmaceutical supplies and equipment, helping with medications, provision of therapy services and short term oxygen.

If you have queries about specified care and services, please contact the Aged Care Information Line on 1800 500 853.

All Commonwealth Subsidised Aged Care Homes must also meet the requirements under the Accreditation Standards for Residential Aged Care.
