ACAT assessment information

An ACAT assessment is required to access most aged care services subsidised by the Australian Government. Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACATs) help older people and their carers work out what kind of care will best meet their needs when they are no longer able to manage at home without assistance. They can provide information on the range of services available in the local community and can help you or your carer to access these services, through information and/or referral.
