The first thing you need to do when you are considering moving to residential aged care is to visit the local Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). ACATs are usually located in major hospitals and assessment is done by a doctor, nurse, or a social worker. They are the ones who will determine if you are eligible for aged care. Though they might suggest several aged care facilities in your area that are suitable for you, your family is still the one responsible for arranging your entry to your chosen residential aged care facility.
