Fees at Buckley Caring Centre cover care, meals, cleaning and laundry. Incidentals such as pharmacy scripts, hairdressing and outings are additional. Fees will depend on income level and assets. and will be discussed in detail upon application. Fees are calculated in strict accordance with Government regulations and the Aged Care Act 1997.
To gain admission to the Buckley Centre, an assessment is required by a Government Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) as well as an income assessment through Centrelink or the Department of Veteran Affairs. ACAT assessment can be organised through your Doctor or hospital social worker and will determine whether you have high or low care needs. Once both assessments have been obtained, you can place your name on our waiting list.
