Residential Care

Move in and make Synovum Care your new home

Residential aged care in Australia is subsidised by the Commonwealth Government and is governed by the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act).

Residential aged care provides a range of care options and accommodation for older people (and in some cases younger people) who are unable to continue living independently in their own homes. The type of care provided ranges from personal care to through to 24 hour nursing care.

All Synovum Care Group centres are subsidised by the Australian Government, and to be eligible to move into one of our centres you must first be approved as a care recipient.

Your local Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) will conduct an assessment and provide you with an Aged Care Assessment Record (ACCR); your record will confirm your entitlement to entre care on either a permanent or respite basis.

The assessment is a series of questions about your life and lifestyle by health care professional. They are free of charge, can be done in your own home and you are entitled to have an advocate present.
