How to apply for accommodation
For an applicant to be considered for admission, we request the following paperwork be provided to us:
- Dorothy Impey Home application form
- A copy of your current Aged Care Assessment Record (ACAR)
- An Income and Assets Assessment
When a room becomes available we go through applications for a person appropriate for that available room or area.
We then invite suitable applicants to come in to discuss their care needs; financial details and exchange general information required by either party. If things work out, the prospective new resident goes through an admission process.
A date is set for entry. Families may bring personal items familiar to the resident. We usually supply an electric bed (for OHS purposes). The family usually supply an easy chair, TV and anything that will make the resident feel at home.
1. Aged Care Assessment Record (ACAR)
We request that you provide us with a copy of your current Aged Care Assessment Record that is no more than 12 months old. This assessment can be arranged by contacting the Aged Care Assessment Service who can organise an appointment or home visit to assess the level of care required. Hospitals and other healthcare professionals such as medical practitioners can also assist with this process.
The Aged Care Assessment Service can be contacted on (03) 8387 2129
2. Income and Asset Assessment
To establish the agreed accommodation bond we require families to provide an Income and Assets Assessment under section 44-8AB of the Act from the Department of Health and Ageing.
