Key points regarding service from Amaroo@Home:
You can find out if you are eligible for a subsidised home care package by contacting My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. You will be asked a series of questions from which My Aged Care will determine if you need an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
WA doctors may also initiate an ACAT assessment for you.
The ACAT will contact you to arrange an assessment to determine what level of Home Care Package you may be eligible for Residential Aged Care or Respite Care.
Home Care Packages are means tested. You should complete and lodge an "Aged Care Fees Income Assessment (SA456) form" with the Department of Human Services so they can calculate if any means testing applies.
If eligible, you will be placed in a national queue for an appropriate package to be allocated when available. You will receive a Referral Code once a package has been allocated to you.
- Referral & Receiving Service
Once you have received a Referral Code you can provide this to Amaroo@Home, (or another service provider if you wish), so the subsidy can be applied to your service costs.
There may be a delay from when you contact Amaroo@Home and the ACAT to when you receive the Referral. It this presents undue difficulty, Amaroo@Home may be able to make some interim arrangements - please talk to us to see what can be done.
Amaroo@Home has a flexible structure for fees and charges to make it more affordable and manageable for you. We will be pleased to cover the fees and charges in detail when personalising the suite of services required to meet your needs. Amaroo@Home does not deny anyone a services they need based on inability to pay fees.
