Long-term Residential Care for Older People: What you need to know: 2012
This booklet explains both the needs assessment process for aged residential care and the financial means assessment for eligibility for the Residential Care Subsidy.
The booklet also provides information about what the older person can expect when they go into an aged care facility, how much they have to pay and where they get more information if they need it.
Note: From 1 July 2012, the asset threshold used to assess a person’s eligibility to the Residential Care Subsidy will increase by the Consumers Price Index (CPI). Please go to Changes to the Residential Care Subsidy asset threshold for more information.
