Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

COTA message “COTA Australia is the peak national advocacy body for older Australians across all areas of government policy. In aged care we have been at the leading edge of reform pressure for over a decade. We are the leading advocate for much greater consumer choice and control in aged care. We have had some success; more is in the pipeline and I expect the

Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety to result in more. COTA Australia’s partnership with DPS’ Aged Care Guide is also focused on improving

consumer information and choice about services and providing opportunities for direct consumer feedback and comment on services.

By creating a platform on which you can choose between providers; and by giving you the opportunity to ‘Leave a Review’ of any service or village, DPS is strengthening consumer information and choice. This has always been a goal for DPS since its inception.

Aged care in Australia is now on the cusp of really major change. A reform process has been underway for a while, although it’s faltered at times and proceeded in fits and starts.

COTA message

Government is still implementing, or yet to implement, decisions announced in the May 2018

Federal Budget package “More Choices for a Longer Life”, which COTA Australia was a partner in developing.

Some things have been done, some are in process, a few big ones have been fudged – like implementation of the Aged Care Workforce Strategy (for which the sector is also at fault);

creation of a single home care program and assessment service (Government dropped the ball twice); and replacement of the current bed allocation process with consumer fund holding (Government dragging its feet again).

This process will now be overtaken by Government response to the Royal Commission’s Final Report due by 26 February 2021. In its Financing Aged Care paper, the Commission flagged

that it’s likely the recommendations will increase the current $20 billion cost of aged care by between 50 percent and 100 percent – or by an extra $10 billion to $20 billion per year!

We already know that the Workforce Strategy was costed at about $3 to $3.5 billion a year, and the Department estimates that reducing the Home Care Package waiting time to a maximum

of two months will cost $2 to $2.5 billion. So that’s $5 to $6 billion that’s pretty well inevitable.

Some billions more will come through increasing base funding in residential care and properly indexing it.

The other unavoidable force for transformation of aged care will be the COVID-19 experience, the implications of which will reverberate in aged care well beyond the time the virus has been defeated. The preference for home care over residential care will be reinforced and

probably heightened. The public will more forcefully demand better resourced, higher quality aged care.

Amidst all this change, an independent, unbiased resource such as this Aged Care Guide,

together with the online directory AgedCareGuide.com.au, assists you to make the best

aged care choices for your specific circumstances, and can help you take greater control of your care.”

Ian Yates AM Chief Executive COTA Australia

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

From the Managing Editor

From the Managing Editor

Welcome to the 2021 edition of the Aged Care Guide South Australia & NT. For more than 20 years, the Aged Care Guide, previously known as the DPS Guide to Aged Care, has provided seniors and their families with essential information about aged care in Australia. Our print and online publications are an essential tool to help you understand and access aged care services – from home and community care through to residential care accommodation and retirement living options. To help you understand the aged care process even better we have created easy to follow flow charts which visualise your options and the steps to take for home care and residential aged care. The articles in the front half of the book give detailed descriptions of the various aged care services available and discuss any financial and legal issues you need to be aware of, as well who can assist with expert advice around advocacy and placement. The directory section at the back provides a comprehensive list of all Australian Government subsidised residential accommodation and approved home care package providers. An extensive list of retirement living operators and private providers of homes and services are also included.

You can use the printed Aged Care Guide in conjunction with our website – AgedCareGuide.com.au – which provides greater detail on the services offered by individual aged care homes, home care providers, retirement villages, as well as professional services and products.

Simply type in the associated ‘DPS Web ID’ number from this book in the space provided on the website to link directly to a chosen home, service or product. Current bed vacancies, as well as home care availability and retirement units for sale or lease, are also listed on the website.

Alternatively you may wish to use our Compare & Connect tool to help you find and compare aged care providers that best meet your needs and search criteria in your preferred area, to help with the decision making process. We are also promoting transparency in the sector and open up dialogue between consumers and providers through our feedback platform Care Opinion on Aged Care Guide, which gives you the opportunity to share positive or negative stories about your aged care experience with a service and for providers to respond to this feedback and address any potential concerns. We would like to wish you all the best as you embark on your journey in locating the home or services to suit your needs. When engaging a service, please advise the aged care home, retirement village, community care provider, or product and service provider that you found their details in the Aged Care Guide. We welcome any suggestions on information we can provide in the next edition of the Aged Care Guide or on AgedCareGuide.com.au to further assist in your journey. Simply email margot.white@dps.com.au . I look forward to hearing from you.

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

How to use the Aged Care Guide

The articles up to page 106 will help you become better informed about aged care, community care and retirement living.

The Aged Care Guide also includes a comprehensive directory of residential aged care homes (for SA see pages 113 –127, for NT see page 141); retirement accommodation (see pages 128 –131); home care packages (for SA see pages 133 –138, for NT see pages 142–144); and facilities or services specific to your cultural background (see pages 145 –147).

How do I find what I’m looking for?

There are a number of ways you can use the Aged Care Guide in order to find aged care homes, retirement accommodation, home care packages, products or services.

The index on page 160 can help you to find the main information topics in the book and can direct you to the different directory tables for aged care homes, retirement villages, in home care options or product/services in the back of the Guide. Each Council District (also known as a Local Government Area or LGA) on the referenced page includes a list of suburbs with homes or villages in each suburb listed in alphabetical order.

You will find some retirement accommodation listed within the residential directory where they are co‑located on the same geographical site as the aged care home. Locality search: If you know the Council District, suburb or town, then use the cross reference index on pages 109 –110. Each of these lists are in alphabetical order and you can then refer to the page referenced. Cultural search: If you are of non-English speaking background, or prefer to find a home or service specific to your cultural needs, refer to the multicultural listings on pages 145 –147.

Searching for other services . . .

If you are looking for In Home Care Services, Centre Based Care, Day Therapy Centres or other Products and Services, you can find this in grid form in the directory section (pages 147 –156). South Australia

Aged care explained Whether you need support to remain living independently at home, or are looking for alternative accommodation, it is important to know what is available to you. What is aged care?

Aged care is a term most easily understood as being nursing homes and home care. It may also refer to community services, specific geriatric health care and community centres. Below you will find a brief description of what care options might be available to you, which will direct you to the different sections of the Aged Care Guide for more detail.

Support at home

If you want to stay in your own home but need assistance to continue living independently, there are numerous services available, both Government and privately funded, to help you manage better at home. You can choose to pay for help at home yourself or you can get support through Government funded programs such as the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or the Home Care Packages (HCP) program.

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Home care products and services range from assistance with daily chores and personal care to providing meals, transport assistance and home maintenance. Basic assistance is offered through the CHSP. See page 14 for information about how the CHSP may be able to assist you. If your needs exceed the level of support offered though this program, then a Home Care Package can offer higher intensity support to help you stay at home. There are four types of packages delivering different levels of care. Find out more about HCPs on page 19. All Government funded services are listed in this Aged Care Guide as well as a wide range of private services.

Respite care

Respite care offers the opportunity for both you and your carer to take a break for a few hours, a day, a night or a few weeks. Respite care is provided by residential aged care homes and community care services in your own home, and is available under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). See page 28 for more information about home and community respite care or page 69 for residential respite.

Residential aged care

If you are no longer able to remain living independently at home, moving into residential aged care can ensure quality of life and comfort. Other names for residential aged care include aged care home, nursing home and aged care facility. These are all subsidised by the Australian Government. Entry into a Government funded residential aged care home requires an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). See page 41 for information about residential aged care, how to access it and what you may need to pay. There are also a number of non Government funded residential aged care homes, often referred to as supported and assisted living complexes. See pages 77 –78 for more information.

Retirement living

Retirement villages are not nursing homes. They are clusters of villas, units or apartments, and you will need a reasonable level of independence to move into a retirement setting. Generally, the land is owned by the operator and residents enter into a lease type arrangement so that they can live there for as long as they choose to do so. Some villages may offer units to be purchased on a freehold basis. See page 79 for advice on retirement accommodation.

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

My Aged Care My Aged Care is a Government operated website and contact centre for people who would like Government support to access in home support, community or residential care. The service can help you find information about subsidised aged care options including the different types of Government funded services available, eligibility for those services and the associated costs. To receive assistance, you, a family member, carer or client representative can register your details with My Aged Care and you will need to be assessed to access any Government subsidised services.

My Aged Care

My Aged Care then assigns you with an Aged Care user ID and keeps a central client record which includes your assessed needs and the Government funded care services being provided. Visit myagedcare.gov.au or call 1800 200 422 for more information.

Referral code

Once you’ve been assessed and found eligible for services, you should be given a referral code. The service provider of your choice will need this referral code to access your information and manage the referral. The referral code is a five digit number linked to the type of service you are eligible to access. If you need the support of multiple services, you will need multiple referral codes, one for each service. If you are not given a referral code make sure you ask for one so you can discuss your needs with your preferred service provider. If you have been found eligible for a Home Care Package there may be a wait time before a suitable package becomes available. In the meantime you may be allocated an interim package at a lower level or choose to self-fund your supports. You will receive a letter from My Aged Care to advise you when you have been allocated an available package. To assist you in your search, an independent information source like the Aged Care Guide publications and the linked AgedCareGuide.com.au website can help. These resources give a comprehensive overview of all care options and care providers available. Through our online tool Care Opinion on AgedCareGuide.com.au, you can read stories from other consumers about their experience with specific providers to assist with your decision making.

Support at home To help you live independently in your own home and community for as long as possible, there are many home care products and services available. Depending on your personal situation and the level of assistance you require, you may be entitled to in home support or a Home Care Package. After a hospital stay, the Transition Care Program might be able to assist in your recovery and to return home. Or you may need to access respite care to give your carer a short break from the caring role.

In home support

Home care products and services range from assistance with daily chores to personal care, providing meals, transport assistance and equipment. The Government continues to significantly increase support for home and community based aged care with particular integrated packages available. Private businesses also offer home care services.

Consumer Directed Care

Consumer Directed Care (CDC) gives you and your carers greater say about the types of care services you receive and the delivery of those services. All Home Care Packages are delivered on a CDC basis and the funding for a package is allocated directly to you instead of to the provider. Providers are required to work in partnership with you to create a package of services that meets your goals and needs, and gives you the information you require to allow you to:   Choose the provider best suited to you and change provider if necessary   Allow you to control the types of care you access, how it is delivered and who provides that care   Set your goals regarding being independent for as long as possible, remaining healthy, or returning home after a hospital stay   Determine how much involvement you want in managing your package   Get ongoing monitoring and formal reviews by your provider to ensure your package continues to meet your needs   Have greater transparency on how your package is funded and the funds are spent through the Care Recipient Agreement

Support at home

To assist with your care needs is a Government priority, so you can continue living in the comfort of your own home where possible.


Commonwealth Home Support Programme

14

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) If you want to stay in your own home, but need some help with daily tasks or require entry level care, the CHSP may be able to help. The CHSP combines four Government funded home support programs into one streamlined and simplified program. They are:

Home and Community Care (HACC) program;   National Respite for Carer Program (NRCP);   Day Therapy Centres (DTC) program; and the   Assistance with Care and Housing for the Aged (ACHA) program. To determine if the CHSP is the right program for you, you will need to be assessed by a Regional Assessment Service (RAS). See page 38 for more information. If you have more complex needs, a Home Care Package may be a better option. You can access similar services to the CHSP, coordinated and tailored to meet your specific needs (see page 19 for more details). Contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to find out how you can arrange a home support assessment.

What is CHSP?

Subsidised by the Australian Government, CHSP is an entry level home help program if you are mostly – but not completely – able to live and cope on your own, and don’t yet need higher levels of support at home. The program can also help your carer. If your carer needs to attend to everyday activities, the CHSP can arrange for someone to help you while they are away.

What types of services are provided?

CHSP services provided in the community may include:

Social support – social activities in a community-based group setting   Transport – help to get out and about for shopping or appointments Services provided at home may include:

Domestic assistance – household jobs such as cleaning, clothes washing and ironing

Food services – If you are finding it difficult to prepare meals, services may include providing meals at a community centre, helping with shopping for food, preparing and storing food in your home, and delivering meals to your home. Allied Health support services – If you have particular health problems, for example with speech or walking, or need help with ongoing problems resulting from an accident or illness, you may be able to access allied health services. They include services such as physiotherapy, podiatry, speech therapy, occupational therapy and advice from a dietitian.

Who is CHSP for?

If you are 65 years or older, or 50 years or older and identify as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person, are still living at home and need help to continue living independently, you or your carer could apply for home help services under the CHSP by contacting the My Aged Care contact centre on 1800 200 422.

Am I eligible?

You will need a home support assessment to determine exactly what help you need at home. The assessment will be done by a representative of the Regional Assessment Service (RAS). A local RAS assessor will look at your ability to cope with various activities in your daily living. Together you will be able to work out what sort of help and how much you need, and what it might cost.

Urgent needs

If you’re in a situation where you have an urgent need for home support services and your safety would be at risk if those needs are not immediately met, it may be possible to receive CHSP services before you have been assessed by a RAS. This only happens in exceptional circumstances and is only for a limited time until an assessment can be organised to determine long term care options. Services generally considered to relieve an urgent need for care include nursing, personal care, meals and transport. It will depend on your personal circumstances whether you’ll be able to receive interim services before an assessment. Call the My Aged Care contact centre on 1800 200 422 to find out more.

Who pays for CHSP services?

CHSP is subsidised by the Government however there generally is still a fee for each service. You are encouraged to contribute towards the cost of your care if you are able to do so.

Commonwealth Home Support Programme

Some CHSP services can be provided either at a community centre or in your home such as:


18

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

The amount you contribute depends on the type and number of services you require and can differ from one service provider to the next. Some organisations may charge a set fee for their services, while others may ask for a voluntary donation, charge a membership or subscription fee.

CHSP

How much you pay is discussed and agreed upon between you and your service provider. The rate is set before you begin receiving the relevant services. If you are receiving multiple services from one or more service providers and these services overlap, it may be possible to ‘bundle’ the cost for these services. To find out specific costs you should contact your service provider.

Pre-1 July 2015 HACC, NRCP, DTC and ACHA clients

If you accessed Home And Community Care (HACC), National Respite for Carers Programme (NRCP), Day Therapy Centres (DTC) or Assistance with Care and Housing for the Aged (ACHA) prior to 1 July 2015, you may retain access to these services or equivalent CHSP services until other suitable services become available, or until the service is no longer required. You can find CHSP funded services starting on page 147 of the directory section or online on AgedCareGuide.com.au .

Home Care Packages A Home Care Package (HCP) provides services that will help you to remain at home for as long as possible, as well as giving you choice and flexibility in the way that the care and support is provided. There are four different levels of packages to support people with varying care needs, ranging from Level 1 support if you have basic care needs, to Level 4 which can support you if you have high level care needs.

Once you have been allocated a HCP you can contact any preferred approved service provider to give you the care you need.

Types of packages available

There are four types of packages delivering different levels of care:

1  Level 1 supports people with basic care needs 2  Level 2 supports people with low level care needs 3  Level 3 supports people with intermediate care needs 4  Level 4 supports people with high level care needs

The same type of care and services are provided under each HCP level, however, the funding differentiates depending on what package is allocated to you. The hours of care are increased at each level of care; more hours of care and services are delivered under Home Care Package Level 4 compared to Level 1. Package supplements – the ZDementia Supplement for people with dementia and the R Veterans’ Supplement for veterans with an accepted mental health condition – are available with any of the four levels of Home Care Packages. Some packages can be specifically for people who are e financially or socially disadvantaged, people with Y housing needs or at risk of homelessness, or for people who live in t rural, remote or isolated areas.

Your care provider will apply for these subsidies and ensure you meet the eligibility criteria. Some providers might cater for people with a certain g cultural background or have staff that speak a foreign language. The ACAT assesses the types of care needs you may require. Someone eligible for Levels 3 and 4 HCP will be eligible for higher levels of residential care if they were to apply for it. If you are receiving care services through the previous Community Aged Care Package, Extended Aged Care at Home or Extended Aged Care at Home Dementia packages, you will continue to receive these services, but they will have a different name. For a list of HCP providers, see pages 134 (SA) and 143 (NT).

Home Care Packages

The HCP is allocated to you personally which gives you more control over the services you receive and who delivers those services.

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Are you eligible?

To receive a Home Care Package you will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). The ACAT helps you, and your carer, determine what kind of care will best meet your needs when you are no longer able to manage on your own. A member of the team, which may include a doctor, nurse, social worker, and/or other health professional, will meet with you to assess your care needs and how well you are managing at home. They will identify the right services for your needs and the level of care you require. The ACAT will give you a letter stating the types of subsidised services you have been approved for and might also put you in contact with organisations in your area that can deliver these services. For more details about ACAT go to page 39 or call 1800 200 422 and ask for an assessment.

Priority

Access to Home Care Packages is managed through a national pool of all available packages. After approval for a HCP you will be placed in a ‘queue’ until a suitable package becomes available. Your place in the queue will be determined by your personal needs and circumstances and the time you have been waiting for care since your assessment.

AgedCareGuide.com.au

When you reach the front of the queue and a package is assigned to you, you can begin to receive care from the provider of your choice. You have 56 days from the date you were assigned a package to find a provider and commence services. You can request an extension, for example if you have trouble finding a service provider, but if you haven’t started receiving care within 84 days, the package will return to the queue and be assigned to the next person in line.

Approved providers

An organisation that has been approved by the Government to provide aged care services is called an approved provider. The Government will pay your approved provider your allocated funding so they can pay the carers and any other bills. An approved provider can manage your care, liaise with you about your preferences, requirements and care plan but it doesn’t have to be the provider delivering your care. It is important to know that even though a HCP can only be managed by an approved provider, the care can be delivered by any provider, even one that is not supported by the Government. This gives you more choice as to who delivers your care.

Home Care Agreement

This agreement is made between you and your provider on the care and services you will receive and how much they will cost. Your provider may work with you to develop a care or service plan that is based on your needs.

Home Care Packages

The exact types of services you will receive   Who will provide which services   How much involvement the service provider will have in managing and coordinating your services

When your services are delivered   Any exit amount the provider will charge to cover administrative cost if you decide to take your package elsewhere or cease care

How much will it cost?

The Government covers most of the cost of care but your provider may ask you to contribute towards the cost of delivering your services, if you can afford to do so. Depending on the Home Care Package level you are eligible for, the Government pays your approved provider a subsidy toward the cost of your care. This amount is calculated daily and paid monthly to the provider. The Government contributes the following amounts to each person receiving a Home Care Package (20 September 2020 rates): Home Care Package

Level 1

Level 3

Level 2 Level 4

Daily subsidy amount

Annual amount

$ 43.03

$ 15,705.95

$ 93.63

$ 141.94

$ 8,927.90

$ 34,174.95

$ 51,808.10

This amount may be supplemented with an additional payment for people with higher care and specialised support needs such as a Dementia, Veterans’ or Housing supplement. Rates are reviewed generally in March and September each year in line with changes to the Age Pension. This applies to each person receiving a Home Care Package, even if you are part of a couple.


SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

AgedCareGuide.com.au

Home Care Packages

Any Government funding you receive will be paid directly to the provider who can spend the funds on the items you both agreed to in the Care Recipient Agreement. After commencement of your package, you will receive a monthly statement of income, expenditure and the balance of funds enabling you to see how the money is being spent.

How much you will pay

A provider may charge the maximum basic daily fee for a Home Care Package depending on what level you have been given (20 September rates): Home Care Package  Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4

Maximum basic daily fee  $ 9.63 $ 10.19 $ 10.48 $ 10.75

25

Fortnight amount $ 134.82 $ 142.66 $ 146.72 $ 150.50

There may be additional benefits available depending on your personal circumstances, contact My Aged Care for more details on 1800 200 422. People on higher incomes than the Age Pension may be required to pay extra. The maximum amount you may be asked to pay above the basic fee is up to 50 percent of your income above the Age Pension amount of $860.60 per fortnight for a single person (as of 20 September 2020). This amount depends on your income and unavoidable expenses, such as pharmaceutical bills, rent, utilities and other living expenses. You need to negotiate the costs with your provider. These costs will be agreed upon and fixed in your agreement before you receive any aged care services. This is your legal agreement with your service provider. No full pensioner will pay an income tested care fee and no part pensioner will pay an income tested care fee greater than $5,617.47 per annum (20 September 2020 rates). If you have an income of more than $53,731.60 per year, you will pay an income tested care fee on a sliding scale up to a total of $11,234.96 per annum.

A Company With Heart

However, no one will pay more than $67,409.85 in an income tested care fee over their lifetime (20 September 2020 rates).

Thanks to our responsiveness, dependability and personalised care, KompleteCare has become one of the most trusted providers of in-home care and assistance services. These qualities, among others, are what truly set us apart.

Your assets, including the family home, are excluded from the means testing arrangements for home care.

Exit fees

HCPs are portable which means that if you are moving to a different area or if you’re not happy with a provider’s services, you can simply take your package and any remaining funds with you to a new provider. If you decide to change providers, the provider may charge you an exit fee to cover any administrative cost, which will be deducted from any unspent funds.

This is the amount that is ‘left over’ in your HCP budget and it will move with you to a new provider. If you no longer require your HCP, these unspent funds will be returned to the Government. Exit fees may vary between providers and the amount should be clearly stated in the Home Care Agreement between you and the provider.

Quality and complaints

The Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission is responsible for the review of aged care services including Government subsidised home care services. As an independent body, the Commission manages the accreditation of residential aged care services and the quality review of home care services across Australia.

Private home care

It evaluates these services against the set Aged Care Quality Standards. The Commission is committed to promoting continuous improvement of aged care and ensures that quality and other reporting by service providers is streamlined while supporting accountability information and confidence for consumers. If you are concerned about the care or services you are receiving, it is recommended that you first try to resolve any issues with your service provider. If you feel you are not being heard or need help to address the issue, you can contact an aged care advocacy service to help you. If the matter is not resolved you can make a complaint to the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission on 1800 951 822 or visit agedcarequality.gov.au .

Private home care Rather than a Government funded service, you may choose a private home care provider. Maybe this is more cost effective for you or there is a waitlist for the Government service you are trying to access. Private home care services are arranged directly between you and the service provider. You pay for all the services provided and there is no Government subsidy. Private home care organisations provide a wide variety of services including Registered Nurses for complex care needs and carers for companionship, personal care, housekeeping, cooking and outings. They may also provide other types of staff such as advisors, assistants, dietitians, drivers, personal trainers, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. There is no limit to the number of hours of care provided each week and you can generally increase or decrease the time as your requirements change. With an agreed notice period you are not required to pay for shifts you do not require.

While private home care may seem expensive you may find that it is more cost effective than other institutional alternatives. There is a wide variety in the level of quality and cost of home care companies. When considering private home care services here are some things to investigate and ask:

Do they service your area?   Is the company Australian owned?   Is it independent or part of a franchise?   Do the owners / operators have experience in home care?   Does the company have appropriate insurance?   Does the company comply with Australian Tax Law, for example does it charge GST appropriately? service begins?

Do they have a Service Agreement? It is important so that there’s no misunderstanding about the service and cost to be provided.

Are they flexible? After all, it is all about you.   What are their recruitment processes?   Is there a criminal background check performed prior to employment with an agency?

Does the company provide worker’s compensation for employees?

This is important so that you are not responsible for any injuries that occur on the job.

How do they determine appropriate staff for your needs? If a company asks where you live then offers you staff before even hearing about your needs, you can be reasonably assured they allocate based on location as a priority.   Is it possible to interview potential carers and make a selection after those interviews?   Do you get to decide what times and days suit your needs?   What is the minimum shift length?   Do they have male/female workers and can they cater for specific cultural backgrounds?   Who will be working in the home? Will there be regular staff providing continuity of care or do they change shifts around?   Is there a professional staff member, such as a Registered Nurse, that provides a plan to meet the needs of the client?   Who is the organisation’s main contact for you?   Do you meet a Manager / Owner and then never hear from them again?   What additional support is offered within the cost of your care? For example, are they available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. You’ll find a list of In Home Care service providers from page 147 in this Guide or visit AgedCareGuide.com.au to find providers servicing your location.

A well earned rest Taking some time off from caring is crucial and known as ‘respite’. Respite can be provided in your own home, a community setting or an aged care home. Respite care offers the opportunity for both you and your carer to take a break. This may be for a few hours, a day, a night or a few weeks. Respite care is provided by residential aged care homes and by community care services under the Carer Gateway. Accommodation and services include:

day care centres that provide respite for a half or full day;   in home respite services, including overnight, home and personal care services;

Respite at home

activity programs;   a break away from home with a support worker;   respite for carers of people with dementia and challenging behaviours;

respite in an aged care home or overnight in a community setting; and

respite for employed carers and for carers seeking to return to work.

Eligibility

Access to respite care is based on priority and need. For respite care in your home or in a day care centre, the respite service provider or the Carer Gateway will assess whether you and your carer are eligible. The amount of care you receive will depend on your needs and the availability of respite care services.

Centre Based Respite Care

Caring for an elderly or frail loved one can be difficult and a well deserved break is often needed. Centre Based Respite Care (CBRC) can provide this respite service to carers, offering individualised social and recreational activities. Through CBRC, you can also attend day programs which may include excursions, outdoor/indoor activities, or holiday programs. Trained respite workers often undertake client assessments. Need based programs are then developed with you and your carer to help enhance your quality of life. All centres are staffed by a qualified coordinator and experienced CBRC community workers. Experienced staff can assist with information and access to other services.

Cost

There is no charge for assistance provided at Carer Gateway, however, individual service fees may apply. Community based respite services charge fees according to the type of service being used and your ability to pay. For more information contact the Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737. Your call will automatically be directed to your nearest State or Territory provider. Read more about accessing respite in an aged care home on page 69.

Regaining your independence

The Transition Care Program is goal oriented, time limited and therapy focused care which can be delivered in your own home or in a home like ‘live in’ setting, which may be an aged care home. To be eligible for transition care, you must be an in‑patient at a hospital and have been assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Transition care can be provided for a period of up to 12 weeks, with a possibility to extend to 18 weeks if assessed as requiring an extra period of therapeutic care. Seven weeks is the expected average.

Services Transition care is delivered by approved providers who will offer a package of services including a range of low intensity therapy services and nursing support and/or personal care services. Low intensity therapy services may include:

physiotherapy  occupational therapy  dietetics  speech therapy  podiatry  counselling and social work Personal care services may include:  help with showering and dressing  assistance with eating and eating aids  managing incontinence  transport to appointments  help with mobility and communication

Transition care

To help improve your independence and confidence at the end of a hospital stay, the Transition Care Program provides short term support and assistance.


30

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Fees

You may be charged a contribution fee to cover the cost of your transition care. The maximum fee is 85 percent of the basic daily rate of a single pension for care delivered in a ‘live in’ setting, such as a residential aged care facility, called the maximum basic daily fee. This rate is currently $52.25 (20 September 2020 rates). For care provided at home, it is 17.5 percent of the basic daily rate of a single pension.

Flexible restorative care

Access to transition care is decided on a needs basis and not on your ability to pay fees. Talk to your hospital social worker or discharge planner to find out more about how to access the transition care program. Aged care homes offering transition care beds are listed in the residential aged care tables from pages 113 (SA) & 141 (NT).

Flexible restorative care To help regain your independence if you have not been admitted to hospital, the Government has introduced a new flexible care option. You may benefit from the Short Term Restorative Care (STRC) program if you have been sick or had a fall and your mobility is temporarily impaired. The program focuses on regaining wellbeing over a short period of time, with a maximum of eight weeks. The ultimate aim is to avoid you having to access ongoing in home care services or residential care. The program is designed around improving your capabilities at performing everyday tasks you may be having difficulties with. A team of professionals would provide the service to help you adjust to the differences in your abilities. This could involve activities and exercises that will benefit your mobility or could result in home modifications to make everyday tasks more manageable. You will be able to choose the services you want to be provided so the assistance you receive will be tailored to your specific needs. Services can be delivered at your home or in a nursing home. You may need to pay a small fee, although you won’t have to pay an accommodation payment if you receive STRC in a nursing home setting. You will be able to access the STRC program even if you’re currently receiving support through the CHSP. You do need an assessment to access the program. This assessment is done by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) and is only valid for six months. You can access the STRC program twice over a 12 month period. Read more about ACAT on page 39 or call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 for more information about STRC.

Interactive activities at these centres may include arts and craft, cooking, history, gardening, self help and mutual problem solving.

Veterans’ support

Veterans’ support If you are a veteran, war widow or widower, you may be in line to receive extra help in your home from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. If you are having a hard time doing the regular household chores, struggling to get in and out of the shower or bath safely, or if you just can’t manage the gardening or household maintenance, then the Veterans’ Home Care (VHC) program could organise people to help you. The VHC program offers a range of services including domestic assistance, personal care, safety related home and garden maintenance, or respite care in your own home or residential care facility. If you have specific medical care needs or need more intensive assistance, a nurse from the Community Nursing program may be able to help you stay in your own home for longer. Services may include medication management, wound care or hygiene assistance. To receive these services, you need to be referred for an assessment by an appropriate health professional. This could be your GP, a treating doctor in hospital, a hospital discharge planner or a VHC assessment agency. So if you’re a veteran or a war widow or widower please call the Veterans’ Home Care line on 1300 550 450 to find out what support services are available to you and how you can access them.

Community Visitors Scheme Older Australians experience high rates of loneliness and social isolation but there are different initiatives to improve social connectedness and encourage interaction in the community.

The initiative from the Department of Health uses volunteer visitors to meet with people through the CVS on a regular basis to provide friendship and social inclusion. The service focuses purely on companionship and the volunteer will not provide personal assistance like cleaning, personal care or nursing. The CVS improves quality of life to all involved with the program and has been proven to combat loneliness and isolation occurring in residential aged care or at home. Older people who would benefit from the CVS include people who have little contact with family or friends, are isolated from their own culture or heritage, have issues with their mobility which prevents them from participating in social activities, or other personal issues that might make it difficult to engage socially.

What service is provided?

A volunteer will visit at least once a week for an hour. The CVS tries to connect like-minded individuals and recipients with similar hobbies, interests and likes to facilitate a good friendship. There are a number of different types of volunteer visits under CVS:

A residential volunteer visits a participant for a one-on-one visit at a residential aged care facility.

Group residential volunteers visit a small group of residents at a residential aged care facility who have similar interests, like gardening or knitting.

A home care volunteer visits a CVS recipient with an approved Home Care Package at their home once a week for one-on-one interaction.

Volunteers are not visiting to monitor your standards of care from your aged care service provider, be involved in any of your financial affairs, or provide any form of nursing or personal care. Think of your volunteer visitor as a dear friend that has come over for a cup of coffee and a chat. In SA, the scheme is coordinated by Southern Volunteering (SA). Find out more on svsa.org.au   or call 08 8326 0200. In NT, the scheme is coordinated by Anglicare NT. For further information, visit their website, anglicare-nt.org.au/service/ community-visitors-scheme-cvs or call 08 8928 0620.

Community Visitors Scheme

One example is the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS), which targets loneliness and isolation amongst aged care service recipients through companionship.

Keep mobile, stay independent The changes that occur with ageing can lead to problems with mobility such as unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of a chair, or falls. These are reportedly the top mobility problems experienced by older people and a major cause of injury and death. Muscle weakness, joint problems, pain, disease and neurological difficulties can also contribute to mobility problems. Keeping mobile can give you the opportunity to maintain independence in order to fulfil daily tasks and live happily in your own home. Although light physical activity can help improve your mobility and remain independent, some people also find comfort and assistance in mobility equipment or aids.

Improve access and safety at home

Mobility

Creating a safe living space is critical to keep your independence and prevent injuries. Some of the most common causes of injury in people over 65 are in and around the home. You can improve the safety of your home by making some basic changes:

Remove clutter around the home to reduce the risk of tripping.   Install grab bars and handrails to help you get down the stairs safely

or step in and out of the shower or bathtub without injuring yourself.

Repair or remove tripping hazards such as loose carpet, slippery throw rugs or floorboards that stick up.

Inadequate lighting can also contribute to falls or injury so install brighter light bulbs.

Make sure you have easy access to bedside lamps and consider using motion sensor lights to create better guidance at night.

Non-slip strips can help make stairs safer or consider having a stair lift installed for easier access to the second level.

Mobility aids can assist you

There are several different types of mobility aids available which can help you maintain independence and safety, assist in walking and moving about, help you with personal care, make it easier for you to remain socially active, and maintain your quality of life. New products and technology are continually introduced to the market. Some of the equipment available include:

Mobility aids – Aids which can help to prevent falls include walking

sticks or frames, wheelie walkers, manual and motorised wheelchairs and scooters.

Personal care – Some of these aids may include shower stools or

chairs, shower hoses, bath seats and boards, commodes, continence pads, aids to assist with dressing or manage medications.

Home safety – Some of the aids which can assist you around the

house during day-to-day living may include handrails, ramps, tap turners, non-slip mats, easy-grip utensils and easy-pour kettles.

Technology

There are a number of gadgets, devices and technologies that can help older Australians keep their independence and make life much simpler around the home. These might include safety devices or personal alert systems, these devices allow you to call for help by alerting family or emergency services if you fall or become unwell and are especially handy for people who live alone or go long periods without social interaction. Smartwatches can also offer similar safety functions, having the potential to help in your daily life in a variety of different ways, from instant calls and messaging, to an abundance of applications that can help with things such as medication reminders and GPS tracking. Other gadgets that have hit the market that may be beneficial are assistive technologies and voice and activated functions to control devices around the home as well as being able to monitor daily routines.

Assistive technology solutions

To remain independent and in good health, it’s important that you can look after yourself, move, eat and drink well, stay connected and have fun.

Mobility

Fortunately, there are a range of assistive technology solutions that can support you to achieve all of this:

Prepare your own meals and eat or drink independently   Communicate and stay connected   Move around your home and community   Manage your own personal care such as bathing or dressing   Use your computer, tablet or phone   Participate in sports and other recreational activities   Control your appliances such as your TV and lights   Undertake daily tasks safely; and   Be more independent in your own home and when out and about. With over 11,000 assistive technology products on the market, it can be difficult to know what the best solutions for your needs are. In SA and NT, the Independent Living Centre of SA supports people with their assistive technology choices through information and advice, allied health support as well as access to grants for individuals to get access to a range of technology items including:

Emergency call systems   Wheelchairs and scooters   Telephones   Showering, toileting and dressing aids

Kitchen equipment   Seating, beds and mattresses   Hoists and transfer aids   Vehicle modifications   Smart home technology

Through an online National Equipment Database (NED), you can search over 11,000 assistive technology products Australia-wide, including supplier details and product specifications. Find out more at askned.com.au . For further information, email ilcsa@sa.gov.au or call 1300 885 886.

The importance of nutrition

Good nutrition is important at any age but it becomes even more important as you get older. Food is such an important part of the human experience, but it can be harder to continue enjoying food when your body doesn’t process what you enjoy the same way it did when you were younger. Maintaining a healthy body is all about making good choices such as being active and eating healthy, which also assists with living independently for longer.

Making the right food choices doesn’t mean you can’t still indulge and enjoy your favourite treats. It’s all about balance.

Good nutrients can reduce the risk of developing a lot of diseases and illnesses, like weakening muscles and bones, or chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol or osteoporosis.

Since your immune system already weakens as you age, it’s important to put as many preventative measures in place as possible.

Food and your body

Food is also a huge source of fuel for the body to keep it moving and energised, it’s important to “fill the tank” with what your body needs.

As you age, your calorie intake will decrease. This can be a bit difficult because you still need to maintain the same amount of nutrients, if not increase them.

Taste and smell can also decrease as you age, so to counterbalance that you need more flavourful food or pleasant smelling food to increase your appetite.

Changes in your diet for optimum nutrients

If you aren’t getting enough vitamins from your food, it may be worth talking to your doctor about adding specific supplements into your diet, to help you get to the levels you need.

However, never substitute supplements for food, they should only be used to assist. Eating nutrient-rich foods could include vegetables and fruits, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds, low-fat dairy, and lean meat.

These types of foods are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and fats that are vital to an ageing body. Fibre is another essential for older people in maintaining a healthy digestive system, which is also beneficial to good cholesterol levels.

Minimising salt intake and reducing processed food is also important. Junk food generally has a lot of calories but no nutritional value. Keeping hydrated is also very important and vital to a healthy body.

The best option for reaching optimum nutrition goals is to create an action plan for healthy eating. Consult your doctor or dietitian to organise the best fit for you.

Nutrition

Poor nutrition can result in weight loss or weight gain, and impact the security of your immune system making the likelihood of catching illnesses, like the flu, more common.

Regional Assessment Service (RAS)

Regional Assessment Service (RAS)

To access basic Government funded in home support under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) you need to be assessed by a RAS. The aim of the RAS is to ensure the services respond to you and your carers’ needs and support you in retaining or regaining skills that enable you to continue living independently in the community.

What services does RAS provide?

The RAS helps to identify you and your carers’ needs for support and your goals for greater independence and wellbeing. It provides in home, face to face assessments of new and existing clients/carers. RAS allows assessments to be conducted independently from service provision and ensures assessors consider the full range of options when responding to you and your carers’ needs and goals. Some of these needs may include assistive technology, therapeutic interventions, community care services or other support organisations. They liaise with other service providers, GPs/specialists and community support networks, and communication is made to make sure desired outcomes are achieved. RAS plans and coordinates exit and transfer to other appropriate service systems including Home Care Packages and/or residential care if required. The service also provides care coordination if you have multiple providers or more complex needs.

How the assessment works

An assessor from your local RAS will visit you for the assessment. They will ask you questions about your personal situation, health, and if you’re already receiving some support. The RAS assessment is a free service. You might like to have some support, a partner, relative or friend, present during the assessment. An interpreter can also be arranged. Together with the assessor you will work out a Home Support Plan detailing your needs and goals, and what services are needed to achieve those.

Referrals

The RAS team ensures your diverse needs are addressed through appropriate assessment, or can identify the need for other relevant assessments. After an assessment has been completed you should be given a referral code which you need to access services. Alternatively, RAS can make a referral to a CHSP provider following a discussion about the availability of appropriate services and a discussion with you about your preferences. Find out more about CHSP on page 14 or call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to request a RAS assessment.

Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT)

This may be a Home Care Package (see page 19) provided to you in your own home or residential care in an aged care home (see page 41). The ACAT is staffed by doctors, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists and other health professionals.

How the assessment works

A member of your local ACAT will visit you in your home or in hospital to assess your needs. You will be asked a series of questions to work out how much and what sort of help you require with daily and personal activities, to determine the best care option for your situation. With your approval, the ACAT will also contact your local doctor to gain more information on your medical history to assist with the assessment process. There is no charge for the assessment as the ACAT is Government funded. Carers, relatives or close friends are encouraged to be involved in the discussion. The ACAT will discuss the result of its assessment with you and the options that would be most suitable and what is available in your area. If there is no package of the assessed level immediately available, you may be offered a package at a lower level or CHSP services to help you while you wait. While an ACAT cannot make recommendations about individual homes or community services, they can provide you with information to assist you to make decisions. If you are of non-English speaking background and require an interpreter, please advise the ACAT when making your appointment.

Referral code

If the ACAT considers you eligible for services, you will be given a referral code. The service provider of your choice will need this referral code to access your client record on My Aged Care and manage the referral. Make sure you ask for the referral code if you haven’t been given one.

Not satisfied with the ACAT?

If you have a complaint or are not satisfied with the assessment or recommendations, you should advise the person in charge of the ACAT. If you cannot reach an agreement, you can appeal the decision. You will be sent a letter by the ACAT explaining how you, or someone acting on your behalf, can appeal. Call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 if you would like to organise an ACAT assessment.

If you are no longer able to manage at home without basic assistance, the ACAT helps you, and your carers, determine what kind of care will best meet your needs.

If you are unable to continue living independently at home, you may choose to move into an aged care home. The Australian Government regulates and funds the provision of much of the aged care in Australia. ‘Aged care home’ is the term most commonly used, but you may also find this type of accommodation referred to as nursing home, aged care facility, residential aged care, or high and low care facility. All of these terms can be used interchangeably to describe the same type of living arrangement. Entry into a Government funded aged care home requires approval by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). There are also non Government funded aged care homes which are called supported or assisted living complexes. These do not require ACAT or Government approval.

Where do I start?

If you, or someone close to you, feel you are in need of some form of residential care, you can speak with your doctor, who can make initial contact with My Aged Care.

The next step

After being approved by an ACAT for Government funded residential care, you may begin looking for your future home. You can do this yourself or you can hire a placement consultant who can make the job much easier for you. It is important to know and understand the types of homes available in your area as this may affect the cost and services you receive. It is also recommended that you visit as many homes as possible, just as you would when buying or renting a house. This will enable you to gauge the feel and culture of the home.

Aged care homes

Homes and their services

Some nursing homes may have a secure garden area specifically designed for people with dementia, which is generally attached to the secure dementia unit. There are homes that cater to a specific cultural and linguistic group or may offer culturally appropriate services. See pages 145 –147 for a list of culturally appropriate care homes and services g.

Pets can help lessen feelings of loneliness and isolation, and some homes are happy to accommodate you and your pet. Some nursing homes have live-in pets. You’ll find these C listed in the directory section of this guide, starting on page 113 (SA) and page 141 (NT).

Accreditation and certification

All Government funded care homes must meet required accreditation standards and demonstrate continuous improvement with regard to the quality of care and services provided to residents. The standards that must be met cover areas such as management, staffing, health and personal care, resident lifestyle, living environment, catering, cleaning, continuous improvement, and safety and security. The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission is responsible for the review of aged care homes.

Aged care homes

For people with dementia, it is important to ask a home whether it offers separate or secure dementia specific units or wings.

It monitors residential aged care services to ensure their compliance with the accreditation standards. You can ask the provider for the accreditation status of the home or access reports and find information about the process on the Commission’s website – agedcarequality.gov.au .

New quality standards

On 1 July 2019, the new set of Aged Care Quality Standards came into effect. The eight new standards replaced the previous standards and will have a much stronger focus on consumers to help them make informed decisions about aged care services. It gives consumers confidence that aged care providers will work in partnership with them and their families to deliver care that supports their health, wellbeing and quality of life. The new Quality Standards include the following focus areas:   Consumer dignity and choice   Ongoing assessment and planning with consumers   Personal care and clinical care   Services and supports for daily living   Organisation’s service environment   Feedback and complaints   Human resources   Organisational governance

Each of the standards looks at three key aspects:

What is the outcome for the consumer

What is the expectation for the organisation

What are the organisational requirements to show that the standard has been met The new standards revolve around consumers, their families and the staff providing care. This partnership between the provider and consumer needs to work in order for the eight areas to succeed. All Government funded aged care homes and home care services are measured against the new standards, and organisations must be able to provide evidence of their compliance and performance with the Quality Standards.

Charter of Rights

Supporting the new Aged Care Quality Standards is a new single Charter of Aged Care Rights, protecting the rights of consumers receiving aged care services and their right to be properly looked after, treated well and given high quality care and services. All aged care providers will have to provide a personally signed copy of the Charter of Rights to every one of their residents or care recipients. This gives them, or their authorised representative, an opportunity to co-sign.

Aged care homes charge a range of fees to cover the cost of care, accommodation and living expenses, and these can vary enormously between facilities, and from resident to resident. Understanding the rules and seeking specialist advice from an aged care financial advisor to minimise costs is recommended. See page 91 for more information on financial advice. Both your income and financial assets affect your entitlements. The income and asset tests have been combined, to ensure a consistent fees policy. This will address the issue of asset rich, income poor residents paying for all of their accommodation and nothing for care, and the income rich, asset poor residents paying for their care but not for accommodation. The cost of care is divided into two parts – daily care fees and accommodation payments:

Aged care costs

Basic Daily Fees

As a resident in an aged care home you are asked to pay a daily fee as a contribution towards the cost of care and living expenses, such as meals and refreshments, cleaning, laundry, heating and cooling, as well as social activities. In addition, the daily fee contributes to the costs for personal care including assistance with daily living such as bathing, dressing and toileting, assistance with mobility aids, therapy and certain medical and pharmaceutical services. The maximum Basic Daily Fee for all permanent residents who enter an aged care home is 85 percent of the annual single basic Age Pension. This applies as the maximum Basic Daily Fee for all respite residents. It is adjusted each March and September at the same time as the Age Pension. As of 20 September 2020, the maximum Basic Daily Fee is $52.25 per day for all full pensioners and some part pensioners. Depending on your income and level of care, you may also be asked to pay an income tested fee as part of the daily fees. However, this does not apply to respite residents.

Basic Daily Fees – prior to 20 March 2008

If you were a permanent resident in an aged care home, prior to 20 March 2008 (including residents on leave), you will continue to be subject to the pre 20 March 2008 rules governing the Basic Daily Fee unless you are discharged from permanent aged care for a continuous 28 days.

How much will I pay?

If you can afford to, you will pay a basic fee of up to 85 percent of the single basic pension, a means tested (your income and assets combined) contribution to your accommodation, and a means tested contribution to your care. The maximum means tested contribution will be allocated toward your accommodation payment until the full cost is paid and then toward your care fee. The family home will continue to be exempt from the aged care assets test if occupied by a spouse or other protected person.

Aged care costs

If you do receive income other than your pension, you will be assessed by Centrelink, or Veterans’ Affairs if you are a veteran, to determine how much extra you can be asked to pay as an income tested fee.

No one will need to pay a care fee greater than the cost of their care.

Aged care costs

In addition, an annual cap of $28,087.41 will apply to your means tested contribution to your care costs, together with a lifetime cap of $67,409.85 for means tested care fees (Rates as at 20 September 2020). Any income tested contributions you may have made as recipient of Home Care Packages will be taken into account in calculating lifetime care expenditure. The treatment of the family home will not change from the current arrangements, for example if it is occupied by a spouse or protected person. Even when the value of your former home is included as an assessable asset, its value will be capped at $171,535.20 (20 September 2020 prices). It is only counted in determining your ability to pay for your accommodation.

Accommodation payments

Accommodation payments are different from daily care fees. They are used by the aged care home as capital funding to improve the quality of the buildings and services they provide. Not everyone pays an accommodation payment. It depends on the value of your assets and income at the time of entry into care. If you have more than $50,500 in assets and income, you can be asked to pay an accommodation payment, but you must be left with at least $50,500 in assets after your payment (Rates as at 20 September 2020).

Choose how you pay When moving into an aged care home, if you have the capacity to contribute to the cost of your accommodation, you can now choose how you pay for it. You have a choice of three options, however, if you start with one option and change your mind, you have up to 28 days from the date you move into the care home to decide how you wish to pay.

Payment Option 1: Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD)

This is a single payment made to the care home and works similar to an interest-free loan.

Payment Option 2: Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP)

In this option, you pay a periodic payment (usually on a monthly basis) for your accommodation; it is calculated based on the daily rate of the RAD. To calculate the daily payment equivalent of the refundable deposit, the RAD is multiplied by the Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR) and divided by 365 days. The MPIR is set by the Government and is updated every three months – as of 1 October 2020, it is 4.10 percent. The daily payment amount must be equivalent to the refundable deposit amount and is the maximum you can be charged per day for the room. These periodical payments are not refunded when you leave the home.

Payment Option 3: Combination payment of RAD and DAP

If you wish you can also choose to pay a combination of both a RAD and a DAP. For example, let’s assume the RAD is $400,000 but you want to only pay half of a deposit ($200,000) and the other as a DAP. Use this formula to calculate the DAP: (Balance of price x MPIR) / 365 = ($400,000 - $200,000) x 4.10% / 365 = $22.46 per day (MPIR from 1 October 2020). Or use our easy to use fee-estimator calculator on agedcareguide.com.au/nursing-home-fee-estimator For further information, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or Centrelink on 13 23 00, or discuss with a placement consultant or financial advisor.

Please phone 1800 200 422 for more complete, up-to-date information.

RAD and DAP

The balance of the deposit is guaranteed to be refunded when you leave the home, but only after any amounts which have been used to pay for agreed services have been deducted.


Applying to a home

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Applying to aged care homes As soon as you have been approved by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) for Government funded residential care, you can begin looking for your future home. You can do this yourself or you can hire a placement consultant to do this for you. When searching for nursing homes, decide what features are important to you. Are you looking for an extra service facility, a specific cultural environment or a facility with pets? It is important to know and understand the types of homes that are available in your area because this may affect the cost and services you receive. It is recommended that you visit as many homes as possible, just as you would when buying or renting a house. This will allow you to get a feel for the culture of the home and its surroundings. You can also use residential respite as a way of finding out about the quality of care at a nursing home before deciding if the home is a good place for you to move into. When you have narrowed down which homes would suit your needs and wants, it is best to apply to a number of homes to increase your chances of finding a place quickly.

The universal word for happiness. We have a long-held reputation for honest, respectful, thoughtful and thoroughly reliable care, across our residential care, home care, and lifestyle and wellness programs. Because, when our Bene consumers are receiving all the care they need, they are more relaxed, confident and happy. When it comes to looking after family, we make sure everyone is happy, that’s what we care about. We’d love to chat about helping care for you or a loved one.

Some aged care homes may have waiting lists and the length of these varies between homes. If your situation is urgent, please inform the staff at the home. Aged care homes cannot predict or know when a vacancy will occur, so it is important to keep in regular contact with the aged care homes to ensure they are aware you are still interested in admission to their home. If you’ve engaged the services of a placement consultant they will monitor vacancies for you.

What happens when a vacancy occurs?

The person in charge at the aged care home will either ring you, your carer or family directly, or phone the social worker if you are in hospital. You may be asked to make a decision within hours because there are usually other people also waiting. You, or the relevant hospital worker, will need to arrange for your transfer to the home as soon as is practicable. If you are unable to move into a home straight away, you will be given seven days after you have agreed to accept the place to move in. This is called pre-entry leave.

Waiting lists

Waiting for residential care


56

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

From the date of acceptance you may be charged for your care and be eligible to receive financial assistance from the Government. Be aware that if you move into an aged care home that’s not your first choice, your priority on the waiting list of your preferred home will drop. It is not acceptable to be charged any fees, or be expected to make any donation, before you formally accept a place in an aged care home.

Deciding on a home There are a number of things to consider when deciding which aged care home will best suit your needs.

Deciding on a home

The following is a brief checklist:

Is the home clean, fresh and in good repair?   Are the staff warm and friendly? You want to be able to feel at ease and comfortable in communicating with the staff.

How many staff work at the home and what is the night time ratio of staff to residents?

Is the home secure, particularly at night?   Are there keypad locks on the doors or are CCTV cameras installed?   Does the home have the provision for you to age in place and remain as your care needs increase?

Do they offer single rooms with ensuite?   If you are looking to move into a home with your spouse, is this provision available?

Are clothes laundered on or off site?   Does the room have access to a private phone line, internet connection or NBN, or pay TV?

Are the floor coverings clean and fresh, or is there an odour throughout the home?

Is the room temperature comfortable for you, and are you able to control your own room temperature?

What personal items and furnishings can you bring into the home, and what provisions are there for storage of personal items?

Inspect the kitchen if possible, and find out if meals are cooked on site or are delivered.

Are the meals flexible and will they meet your special requirements?   Are there spaces for you to meet with family and friends and to celebrate special events?

If you like pets, find out if the home is pet friendly and either has pets at the home or a visiting pet program.

Be sure to enquire about the range of activities available and entertainment programs. These are vital for your ongoing wellbeing. Equally beneficial are outdoor areas or gardens; if relevant, check whether they are secure. Other services you may be looking for include hairdressing salon, on site café, a chapel or provision for church services.

Moving into a home The process of moving in is often referred to as the ‘admission process’ and starts with an initial introduction, orientation and assessment. During the assessment a staff member will gather information including medical conditions, family history, food preferences, social and recreational likes and dislikes, and interests. This information will be used to create a care plan. The care plan is updated regularly and you can request to see a copy at any time.

Family members and carers are welcome to assist in identifying social and care needs.

What can you bring with you?

Your aged care home will already have most of the furniture and furnishings, such as beds, chairs, wardrobe, curtains and floor coverings, so it may be helpful to directly ask the home what you can bring with you.

Personal items

Having personal belongings around you may help you to feel at home in your new environment. Some people may like to bring family photographs, their favourite films, books, music or other treasured items.

Clothing

It is important to ensure that personal clothing is properly labelled. Most nursing homes will launder your clothing either on site or through a laundry service. Bring enough clothing to allow for items being washed as it might take a couple of days before clean laundry is returned to you. Because of the large volume of washing, nursing home laundries often use commercial washing and drying machines so make sure your clothes are machine washable and labelled with your full name.

Continence aids

Residents with higher level care needs, who require products for the management of incontinence, will have these provided by the aged care home. Other residents may be required to purchase these items.

Radios, TVs, computers, digital clocks

Residents can bring with them their preferred electrical and electronic items. Each item will be checked, tested and tagged for use.

Furniture

It is quite common to have space available for some items like a favourite chair, small table, dresser and bedside light, but it’s best to check with the aged care home what and how many items you can bring.

Moving into a home

The care plan will be an overview of your care needs, wishes, and outcomes you want to achieve while living in the facility.

Moving into a home

Medication

It is important that you bring all prescription medication you’re currently taking with you on admission. Care staff will manage and administer the medication to ensure safe and quality use of your medicines. Topical creams, herbal remedies, vitamins and elixirs, which are non‑prescription items, should be declared to the staff.

Toiletries

The aged care home supplies the basic necessities such as toothpaste, soap and toilet tissue. Specific items or particular brands need to be purchased at your own expense.

Mobility and wheelchairs

Wheelchairs, scooters, walking frames, and other mobility aids will be assessed to ensure that these are appropriate to your current situation. The maintenance and upkeep of scooters and wheelchairs is your responsibility.

Making the transition

Once you have been offered a place in an aged care home, it is also important to organise your medical and financial matters, and who you will need to tell about your move.

Moving into a home

If you have not done so already, this is a good time to talk to your loved ones about your wishes for your future medical care. Writing your wishes in a letter or statement can help guide health professionals and those close to you if you become seriously ill or injured and are unable to make decisions about your own care. This is called an Advance Care Directive and it should include clear and specific details about treatments you would accept or refuse. Keep your Advance Care Directive in a place that is easily accessible and share the document with your doctor and loved ones. Conversations with family and close friends about your personal and medical wishes, if you lose capacity, should be happening as early as possible.

Who should you tell about your move?

It is recommended that you tell your family, carer, friends, neighbours, community centre or Council, and any health professionals, such as your doctor or pharmacist, that you’re leaving your home to enter an aged care home. If you need to change doctors, you can ask to have your medical history sent to your new doctor. It is also a good idea to keep track of this and make a note of your current medical treatments and medication so you can discuss this with your new aged care home as part of your care plan.

Daily living in a nursing home

If you are thinking about moving into a nursing home you’re likely to experience a massive range of emotions, varying from relief and excitement to uncertainty and apprehension. Living in a nursing home will be different and it may take a while for you to settle into your new life. Generally life in a nursing home will be easier for you, and many residents have reported they actually enjoy an enhanced quality of life and improved social life.

It’s your home

While areas such as the dining room and lounge are communal, your room is your own. Nursing homes positively encourage you to bring personal items for your room, such as pictures, photos, ornaments, furniture throws and smaller pieces of furniture. Find out prior to moving what extra personal belongings you can bring so you can still enjoy the things which have meaning to you.

Social aspects and routines

Chances are, you’ve moved from living in a house on your own or with a partner, so you’ll need to get used to a few more people being around. However, the choice is yours as to how social you want to be. You can choose to be social in the communal areas and spend time with other residents or simply find a quiet corner or remain in your room to enjoy your own company. Nursing home staff are generally friendly and outgoing, and they will respect your need for privacy. Many nursing homes have strong links to the local community. You can choose to get involved with activities such as meeting local school children or other people from other groups. As well as adjusting to new people, there may be some changes to your daily routines, such as slightly different meal and shower times.

Multiple activities

Nursing homes offer many social aspects and multiple activities such as exercise classes, religious services/classes, bingo, arts and craft, concerts and outings. It doesn’t mean you have to take part, you still decide what you want to do. You can continue to enjoy your usual activities outside the nursing home, such as attending any regular classes or meeting friends in your favourite coffee shop. The choice of how you spend your time is yours.

Daily living

Moving house is often stressful and it may take time to settle into your new environment. Here’s what you can expect from life in a nursing home.


64

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Partners and pets

Daily living

Some homes offer rooms for couples in the form of adjoining rooms, double rooms, or even a single unit for couples. This means couples can continue living together even if they have different care and support needs. While most homes do not allow residents to have their personal pets, many homes now have ‘live-in’ animals such as cats, rabbits, dogs and birds. Some nursing homes also arrange for a variety of animals to visit regularly.

Family and friends

Your family and friends are always encouraged to visit and many nursing homes also have special areas available for private functions. This means you can still hold special events for family and friends in your nursing home.

Going on a holiday

When you live in an aged care home you can still go on a holiday. You can leave the aged care home for up to 52 nights in a financial year. This is called ‘social leave’. The Government will continue to pay subsidies on your behalf to the aged care home and you still have to pay your daily fees and income tested fees. If you are away for longer than 52 nights, the Government will stop paying subsidies and you may be asked to pay any owing amounts to the aged care home. The 52 night rule can not be extended.

Our Person First approach

We embrace your individuality and work with you and your family to help you get the right care and support you need. To find your nearest Bupa Aged Care home visit bupa.com.au/aged-care or call 1800 718 357.

Aged Care The ability to admit new residents is dependent on availability and the specific circumstances and facilities of each Bupa Aged Care home.

Resident Agreement The Resident Agreement is a legal agreement between you and your aged care home. Before you move in, an aged care home will offer you a Resident Agreement to sign, which may cover things like the services you will receive, the fees to be paid and the rights and responsibilities you have as a resident of the home. Your Resident Agreement should include the following:

the policies and practices used to set your fees and charges;   the level of daily fee you’ll be asked to pay;   any extra services you’ve agreed to receive, and their costs;   any circumstances where you might be asked to leave and how the aged care home will help you find somewhere more appropriate;

your rights and responsibilities as a resident in your new aged care home;

your aged care home’s responsibilities to you as a resident;   how the aged care home will deal with any complaints you, your carer, friends or family may make; and

any other matters agreed between you and the aged care home’s manager, within the requirements of the Aged Care Act 1997.

When do I sign?

If you choose to enter into a Resident Agreement, you don’t have to sign it at the time it is offered. You may want to take time to ask your friends, family, carer, financial advisor or legal practitioner for help to go through the agreement, although you don’t have to. While there is no time limit for signing the Resident Agreement, it is in your best interest to finalise the Resident Agreement as soon as you can, as it covers your rights and responsibilities.

Can I withdraw from the Resident Agreement?

Resident Agreement

Should you change your mind, you can withdraw from the Resident Agreement within 14 days of signing. You will need to let your aged care home know straight away, in writing. You will still need to pay your care fees and charges for care you’ve received during the 14 days. If you’ve made any other payments to your provider during that time, you are entitled to a refund. Changes can only be made to the agreement if both you and your aged care home agree.

What if I need help understanding the agreement?

Since the Resident Agreement is a legally binding document, it’s important you understand everything in the document before you sign it. If you have any questions, you should ask your new aged care home. It’s their responsibility to make sure the agreement offered to you are clear. You can also ask your family, friends, carer or a legal practitioner to help you understand the terms of your agreement. The proposed agreements may not automatically include all the things that you think are important, so it is a good idea to check. If you’re having language difficulties because the agreement is not written in your preferred language, you can contact the Australian Government Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) on 13 14 50. If you understand your agreement and want to sign it, but are physically unable to, you can ask someone with the legal authority to sign on your behalf, such as someone who holds Power of Attorney for you.

Rights and responsibilities

Your rights and responsibilities will be the same as those of every other resident. To make sure your rights and responsibilities are protected, there is legislation that all aged care homes funded by the Government must follow. The Charter of Residents’ Rights and Responsibilities will be displayed in your aged care home, or you can ask your home for a copy when they offer you your Resident Agreement.

Extra services Some aged care homes provide ‘extra services’, such as a higher standard of accommodation, increased entertainment options and more diverse food choices. Extra service homes have approval from the Australian Government to offer these additional hotel type services and they come at an additional cost to the resident. ‘Extra service’ only refers to the standard of accommodation, meals, food and entertainment, and not to the level of care which is legislated to be of a high standard across all aged care homes.

Extra services

Services delivered and cost may vary between providers and they should be outlined in your Resident Agreement. In some cases, the whole of the home is ‘extra service’, while in others, a distinct part of that home, such as a separate building, wing or unit, is dedicated to extra services. Some of the extra services you might be offered include:

A bigger room

internet

daily newspaper

satellite TV

phone

choice of meals

selection of beverages including wines, beer and spirits   special therapies such as massage, aromatherapy or podiatry   leisure/entertainment facilities.

Fees

Extra service fees are set by the provider and approved by the Australian Government. This is an additional charge on top of the basic daily care fee, accommodation payment all residents pay, and any means tested fee. Some providers may offer rooms with a non-optional extra service package. You can only take up the room if you agree to and pay for the extra services offered. Other providers may offer extra services as an optional package that you can choose or cancel at any time. In this case, switching from general residency to extra service residence within the same home, does not change the accommodation payment you have already agreed to when entering the home and the provider cannot charge a new or additional accommodation payment.

Additional services

All people in aged care homes have the option to purchase additional services such as entertainment or lifestyle choices for an extra fee. Providers can not charge additional service fees for anything that is part of the normal operation of the nursing home and you have to agree to these charges before they are being delivered. See page 128 for a list of aged care homes that offer extra services.

Taking a break Taking some time off from caring is crucial and known as ‘respite’. Respite care offers the opportunity for both you and your carer to take a break. This may be for a few hours, a day, a night or a few weeks. Residential respite

Usually, you may have up to 63 days of Government funded respite care in any financial year, and it may be possible to extend the care period by up to 21 days at a time, if deemed necessary by the ACATs. When you have received approval by the ACAT, you may apply directly to the aged care facility for respite. Access to respite care is based on eligibility and need. Although residential aged care homes are allocated respite places, they are not required to keep these solely available for respite provision. You will need to book this respite in advance, although in the case of emergencies, it can be organised quite quickly. You can also use residential respite as a way of finding out about the quality of care at a nursing home before deciding if the home is a good place for you to permanently move into.

Cost

For respite in a Government funded aged care home you will pay the equivalent of 85 percent of the single rate of Age Pension (called the Basic Daily Fee and currently $52.25 per day – 20 September 2020), regardless of whether you are a pensioner or not. A booking fee may also be charged to assist in securing a place. This is a pre-payment of respite care fees, not an additional payment, and it cannot be more than a full week’s fee or 25 percent of the entire stay’s fee, whichever amount is the lowest. For respite in an ‘Extra Services’ home you may be asked to pay an extra fee to cover the cost of the higher standard of services. For more information, contact the Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737. Go to page 28 to read about respite options in your own home or community.

Residential respite

To receive respite care in an aged care home, you require an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) except in emergencies. See page 39 for more information about ACAT.

Special needs groups

There are a number of groups of people that are recognised by the Government as ‘special needs’ groups when it comes to aged care services. Aged care providers are required to consider the needs of these groups in the provision of care:

Special needs groups

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) – The care needs of older ATSI people can be quite specific and there is a cultural element that needs to be considered in the delivery of care. See pages 145 –147 for an overview of service providers that have indicated to cater for ATSI clients.   Care leavers – A care leaver is a person who, as a child or youth, spent time in institutional care or other types of out of home care like orphanages, children’s homes or foster care.

Because of their experiences in institutionalised care, aged care has been flagged as an area that can cause distress and anxiety.

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse people (CALD) – Aged care services that cater specifically for people who are culturally and linguistically diverse might have staff that speak a foreign language, have specific cultural activities or meet spiritual needs.

The ‘National Ageing and Aged Care Strategy for People from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Backgrounds’ strategy helps providers deliver quality care and aims to make culturally appropriate aged care more accessible.

See pages 145 –147 for a list of culturally appropriate homes and services.

Disability – If you have a disability, are over 65 years of age and currently receive support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), visit ndis.gov.au or phone 1800 800 110 to find out what services are available to you.   Financially disadvantaged – If you have genuine difficulty paying aged care fees and charges, financial hardship provisions may apply. These allow for your fees and charges to be reduced or waived.

Homeless – If you are currently homeless, or if you’re at risk of becoming homeless, there are Government funded services that can help solve your housing problems, or assist with financial or legal issues.   LGBTIQ – Through the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Strategy, the Government aims to ensure lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning (LGBTIQ) people have access to the same opportunities and options in aged care that are available to all Australians.

Rural & Regional clients – Services offered in rural and regional areas will depend on the needs of the whole community and sometimes aged care, health and community services are combined to meet local health needs.   Veterans – Veterans have a ‘special needs’ status to support complex medical requirements that include the need for high levels of emotional and cultural support in old age, as a result of a veterans’ wartime experience. Contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs on 133 254 or visit www.dva.gov.au for information about support for veterans.

For many older Australians, leaving their home to move into residential care is a lifestyle change that can lead to an emotionally challenging experience. This transition can become more challenging for older people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds requiring access to residential and community aged care services that are sensitive to meeting their specific cultural, spiritual, dietary and linguistic needs. With an increasing ageing and migration population, it is essential that Australian aged care services and communities have the capacity to respond to the unique needs of people from CALD backgrounds. Meeting the needs of the nation’s older people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds has been a growing focus of the Australian Government. Providing suitable cultural care has been associated with huge health and wellbeing benefits for this growing group of older Australians which has led to the Government’s introduction of a number of initiatives.

Cluster facilities

Cultural services

Meeting the needs of all cultures

Facilities with clusters for CALD older people generally consist of three or more residents from a similar background and staff who speak their language.

Cluster facilities also make an extra effort to focus on meeting the cultural, spiritual, dietary and social needs of CALD residents. The aim of clustering is to:

Enhance the quality of care provided to residents from CALD backgrounds in residential aged care facilities

Promote and facilitate access to residential aged care facilities for people from CALD backgrounds

Enable residents to observe religious, spiritual, cultural and personally significant events

Improve communication between staff and residents   Maintain dietary customs according to the CALD backgrounds of residents’ religious and cultural preferences

Provide social and activity programs that appropriately cater for the needs and interests of CALD residents

Cultural services

Some mainstream residential aged care facilities have informal ‘clusters’ that cater for the needs of older people from diverse backgrounds. There are also culturally specific aged care facilities that have formally entered into a contract with the Australian Government to, wherever possible, meet the needs of a specific cultural group.

Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care

Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) is a national initiative, funded by the Australian Government, designed to improve aged care service delivery for older people from CALD communities. The PICAC initiative has resulted in:

More aged care service providers delivering culturally appropriate care to older CALD people

Better access for older CALD people to culturally appropriate residential and community care services

Older CALD people having a greater capacity to make informed decisions about residential and community based aged care

To find out more about PICAC in SA, contact Multicultural Aged Care on 08 8241 9900, or in NT, contact the Council on the Ageing NT on 08 8941 1004.

Breaking language barriers

Healthcare professionals in General Practice treat patients from a diverse range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds. A significant proportion of the Australian population speak a primary language other than English and patients with limited English proficiency may be less likely to adhere to medication regimes and follow-up plans. They may also have a decreased understanding of their diagnosis, and overall, less satisfaction with their care. Access to high quality medical interpreter services may improve the quality of care for these patients. The Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) is an interpreting service provided by the Government. The service covers more than 100 languages and is available 24/7 on 13 14 50. See pages 145 –147 for a list of aged care homes and home care package providers in SA and NT who can meet the needs of people from a range of cultures.

Aged care checklist When trying to decide which aged care home or service best suits your needs, a checklist is an excellent evaluation method.

You may want to consider a short-term respite stay at the home. That way you can experience what it is like to live in the facility before you make the final decision as to whether it is a place you would like to move into permanently. Below are a number of questions to ask the provider when assessing the suitability of an aged care home, supported living facility or other service, to assist you in making your decision.

The provider

Is the provider for-profit or not-for-profit, church or charity based?   Do the owners/directors of the company have a health and/or aged care background?

When was the last time a complaint was made to the provider, what about and how was it dealt with?

Are residents and their families encouraged to have input into services offered and the quality of care?

The facility

Does the home look and smell fresh and clean, and is it in good repair?

Are the carpets and floor coverings clean?   Is the inside temperature comfortable?   Does the home meet safety regulations?   Is there good and clear signage throughout the facility?   Are there secure and interesting outdoor areas?   Are there spaces and activities to support people living with special needs, such as dementia?

Do the residents appear clean and neat?   Can you stay in the facility if your needs change?

The staff

Are the staff friendly and welcoming?   Does the staff provide clear answers to your questions?   What is the mood of interaction between staff and residents?   Do staff look like they take their time with residents to give them personal attention?

What is the ratio of nurses/care workers to residents on weekdays, weekends and at night-time?

Aged care checklist

Take note of your first impressions when you first call the nursing home or service. Are staff friendly and accommodating to answering your questions? When considering a nursing home, ask to tour the facility and speak to people already living in the care home. You may know someone who lives there or has a loved one at the facility. Ask them about their experience.

Frequently asked questions about moving into an aged care home . . . Making the transition to residential aged care can be daunting and a life‑changing experience.

How will I know when it’s time to move into a nursing home?

Making the decision to move into a nursing home comes at different times and for a variety of different reasons, all depending on the person, their care needs, their support network or financial status. Common reasons for making the move from home to a nursing home can be:

Unsuitable personal care in your own home – this can mean that

you require higher personal care support than you are able to access at home through either home care support services or the care of family and friends.

After a crisis – whether it be a fall or medical episode, a crisis of any kind can certainly play a part in making the decision to move into a nursing home to ensure you get the 24 hour support and care you need.

Temporary respite or short-term recovery – access respite in a

nursing home when your carer is away, for a period of time or while you may need to recover from surgery, before moving back into your own home after you have fully recovered.

Remember it is important to find the right nursing home for you so before you sign the dotted line, why not visit, inspect, and talk to people at the nursing home you are considering.

Is there a trial period to see whether I like the home? It is important to make sure you are happy with the nursing home you are moving into and be confident it will meet your needs because it is going to be your new home. ‘Trialing’ a nursing home by booking in for temporary residential respite will give you a taste of what life is like living in the nursing home and may help you in making that final decision of if it is the right home for you. It may also be beneficial to visit the nursing home at different times and on different days to see what staffing levels are like, what activities are on, and to talk to different people about the place.

How will I know if the home is of good quality?

There are a number of ways that you can look into the quality of a nursing home, ranging from sourcing other people’s personal experiences right through to experiencing it for yourself.

Frequently asked questions

It’s important you make the move confidently and know what to expect. Here we answer a few common questions about moving into an aged care facility.


76

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Some of the best ways that you can get an idea on the quality of a nursing home is by:

Speaking to people living in the home – if you are visiting or on a tour, take the time to talk to other residents and even staff about their thoughts and experiences of the nursing home.

Register for respite – booking yourself in for some respite in a nursing home is a great way to get a feel for a place and the people within it.

Look to the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission – this

Frequently asked questions

governing body assesses and reviews all Australian nursing homes against set standards of care which are available online and accessible by you or a loved one.

Consumer ratings – on our website AgedCareGuide.com.au we have launched an online consumer ratings engine which allows you to view real people’s ratings and reviews of individual nursing homes and the nursing home responses, all in one place.

How long can I stay at an aged care facility?

You are able to stay at an aged care home for as long as you want, or need. However, you may have to leave a facility sooner than expected if you require additional nursing support, or if your current home cannot provide the services you need.

Am I free to ‘come and go’ as I please?

You are able to leave your aged care facility for up to 52 nights in a financial year. This is called ‘social leave’.

While you will still have to pay your daily fees and income tested fees, the Australian Government will continue to pay the appropriate subsidies to your aged care home on your behalf. This 52 day allocation period cannot be increased.

What if I need to go to hospital?

The time you spend in hospital will not count towards your social leave, but you’ll still have to pay your usual fees and payments.

The Government will continue to pay appropriate subsidies to your aged care home while you are in hospital.

Under what circumstances can I leave my current aged care home to move to another?

You may wish to leave your current aged care home to move to another if:

you have been accepted to another aged care home which may better suit your health care needs; or

if you have been asked to leave.

Can the aged care home ask me to leave?

An aged care home might ask you to leave, with 14 days notice, if:

they are closing;   they can’t provide the type of accommodation and care you need;   you haven’t paid your fees within 42 days after they fall due for reasons within your control; or

if you intentionally cause serious damage to the aged care home or to another resident or employees.

Supported Residential Facilities

They are not funded by the Australian Government and therefore not governed by the Aged Care Act of 1997. This also means you don’t need an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment to access care in an SRF. SRFs are private low level category aged care homes providing the same services as Government funded homes but without the requirement of accommodation payments. They range from small sites accommodating as few as five people to larger facilities with up to 80 residents. The fees, standards and services provided by SRFs varies, so it is important to look at as many as possible to ensure you find the one that best suits your needs in terms of level of care and services.

What services are available?

While SRFs do not receive direct Government funding, you may be able to access some Government funded services and community services. These services may include allied health, mental health, disability services, Veterans’ Affairs and neighbourhood houses. As an SRF resident, you’ll need to meet the same eligibility criteria for Government funded services as other people in the community. You will not be eligible for home support services that are already provided by the SRF, such as delivered meals, home care, home maintenance and personal care. You may be eligible for other services such as home nursing, social support and allied health. The SRF manager or personal care coordinator will know how to access these services or you can ask your local council or community health service.

What should I look for in an SRF? A good SRF:

Provides for your needs   Respects your individuality and promotes independence   Provides a supportive environment for you and your family and friends

Invites input from you, your family and friends about the care and services you receive

Uses current practices to care for and support you.

Supported Residential Facilities

Supported Residential Facilities (SRFs) are generally private businesses that provide accommodation and care for residents similar to residential aged care but on a fee basis.

24-hour care in your own home Supported living communities combine the best advantages of retirement villages and nursing homes, to provide a new and welcome choice for seniors. In a supported living community you buy and have a leasehold title to your own home, as in many retirement villages. However, unlike a retirement village, you’ll have access to various levels of personal care and nursing care, but this is provided in the privacy of your own home, a choice not available in nursing homes.

Care Communities

Supported living

A new type of supported living is known as Care Communities. These are unique villages with the look and feel of a retirement village and the care of a nursing home. Run by approved providers, you can access Government funding for Home Care Packages, with home care services offered in the comfort of your own self-contained home in the village.

No asset-testing or ACAT assessments

Acquiring one of these homes, which is not Government funded, is surprisingly easy. There is no need for asset testing or income testing, and also no need for an assessment by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) that nursing homes require. If you already receive home support benefits before moving to a supported living community you can stay with your current provider.

Staff at supported living communities

Carers are always available to help out with daily housekeeping chores such as cleaning, vacuuming, clothes washing and ironing. Registered Nurses can prepare suitable care plans individually tailored to your health care requirements, including, regular health checks, medication management, wound and skin care, palliative in home care, illness prevention, pharmaceutical support a nd medication reminders.

Maintain your social life

While some residential aged care homes don’t cater for couples, supported living communities can offer the capacity for couples to stay together in their own home, even if they require different levels of care. The community centres offer many comfortable facilities, including lounge areas, libraries, television, games and activities rooms and tea and coffee facilities.

Choosing a supported living community

There are various factors which may determine your transition to a particular supported living community. It’s important to remember, the facility you will be happiest at will not necessarily be the most expensive. The right community for you is the community where you feel ‘most at home’.

If you are looking for a supportive environment with safety and security, you might like to consider a well managed retirement village. The size and levels of accommodation vary – from self contained independent living to serviced apartments. Think about the type of village you wish to live in and what you can afford on a continuing basis. It is essential that you ask questions to understand the financial implications of ‘owning’ a unit in a village. Seek expert advice as well as that of your chosen village’s residents’ committee. Also, be sure to assess the culture and social side of the village to ensure they meet your expectations.

What is a retirement village?

Retirement villages are designed for people aged over 55 as an alternative housing and lifestyle option. They are popular with people who feel they need more security, support or company, but want to maintain their independence.

Independent living

Retirement living

Retirement living and your choices

Independent Living Units (ILU), also known as villas or apartments are designed for active retirees. They range from one to four bedrooms and may be within a high or medium-rise complex, terrace housing arrangement, stand-alone or semi-detached.

Serviced apartments

Serviced apartments are generally one or two bedrooms and provide residents with some daily living assistance. Services may include cleaning, laundry and assistance with personal care. While a small kitchenette is usually included within the apartment, meals are provided in a dining room setting.

Residential aged care

Some retirement village complexes also offer residential low level care and high level care accommodation, as well as Home Care Packages for people with varying care needs. You will need an aged care assessment to access either of these care options. Go to page 19 to read more about the Home Care Packages or page 41 for information about aged care homes.

Types of villages

There are two types of retirement villages:

Resident funded village   Donor funded village Resident funded villages are owned and operated by the private sector or not-for-profit organisations on a commercial basis to produce a profit or surplus.

The village is funded by the residents who ‘purchase’ their villa or apartment under one of the tenure arrangements. The residents also contribute to the village’s capital infrastructure and the cost of ongoing management. Donor funded villages are normally owned and operated by not-for-profit organisations or church groups. They include an element of charitable subsidy and entry is generally restricted to the needy.

Ownership

The various forms of occupation or ownership rights are referred to as ‘tenure’. The legal forms of tenure include Strata Title ownership, leasehold estates, licences to occupy, freehold or company share arrangement with related residency entitlements. Regardless of the type of tenure, residents are consulted about the ongoing management of the village. This ensures that the village you have chosen cannot be changed without the approval of the residents.

Deposit or entry contribution?

Before moving into a village, you will need to pay an entry contribution which is refunded if you move out of the village. However, a Deferred Management Fee (DMF) usually applies, and is deducted from the amount you receive back. This must be specified in the entry agreement or contract. The cost of entering a village depends on the facilities and services offered. Monthly service and maintenance charges also apply and you may have to pay for extra personal services like laundry. To reserve a villa, a nominal deposit is required and the village will have a policy on how long it can be held for you. Should you change your mind within this specified time, the deposit will be refunded. If you enter into a binding arrangement with the village, the deposit will be part of the purchase price.

Be sure to make enquiries regarding this as some villages may require an administration fee for refunds.

Fees and charges

There are many fees and charges associated with living in a retirement village. Ensure you are provided with full details of all applicable charges and what they cover. For example, there may be a regular maintenance charge that covers the running costs of the entire village. These costs may include upkeep of facilities, staff, council and water rates for common areas, security, insurances including workers’ compensation and public liability, contents insurance for common areas as well as village building insurance. In addition, the charge may also contribute toward a ‘sinking fund’ for major repairs and improvements.

What happens upon vacating?

While the resale value will be determined by the market, there are factors in a retirement village that can add value to your villa or apartment. These include good management, attractiveness and the services and amenities available to enhance retirement living.

Retirement living

In some States and Territories, purchasers are entitled to a refund during a ‘cooling off’ period following the signing of a residency contract.


82

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Retirement living

Departure/exit fee

The village will deduct a ‘deferred’, ‘departure’ or ‘exit’ fee at the time of settlement of sale or re‑occupancy of your villa. This fee forms part of the purchase price, but its payment is deferred until the end of the occupancy. The amount is calculated using a formula that generally involves a percentage of your/your successor’s entry cost multiplied by the number of years of your occupancy, and may include a proportion of capital appreciation.

Can’t afford to buy?

Some retirement villages offer accommodation rental units, sometimes known as periodic tenancy, although these are generally reserved for people with limited financial resources and are usually income assessed. You don’t own the property but pay a weekly fee for the accommodation under the Residential Tenancy Agreement, plus bond. Depending on your circumstances you may be able to receive rent assistance from Centrelink.

Choosing a village

When you have found a village that appeals to you and you feel would suit your particular needs, it is recommended that you don’t rush into making a commitment. Instead visit the village often, get to know the management and staff as well as the residents’ committee and seek answers to all your questions.

Retirement living

Also, request a copy of the village rules. These are generally appropriate rules to enable residents and guests to enjoy the village, particularly communal areas, and its lifestyle and are based upon courtesy and a mutual understanding between residents and management.

Independence

A major appeal of retirement living is that help is at hand if there is an emergency situation and the on site security in various forms gives you peace of mind. Furthermore, management and staff can help organise additional support and services such as home maintenance and other services like organising laundry and dry cleaning. If you need some assistance to remain living independently, you can arrange for home support services like meal delivery or personal care services to help you out. You can choose to pay for these services yourself, or you may be eligible to receive a Government subsidy for these services. Find out more under ‘Support at home’ on page 13.

Sense of community

Most retirement villages have a great sense of community and while you are encouraged to participate in activities and join social events, it’s not obligatory to go to everything on offer. Depending on the village, some of these activities may include exercise classes, water/aqua aerobics, card afternoons, Probus, personal training, knitting and sewing circles, craft groups, plus outings to galleries, movies, events and places of interest. Regular ‘Happy Hours’ and afternoons spent watching televised sport are also popular activities among some residents.

A placement consultant makes your job so much easier Needing to place a loved one into an aged care home can be a highly stressful event for families and carers. You might think its a lack of information or understanding but in fact its because you are both the carer and the person emotionally involved as well as the decision maker. This process can be eased significantly with the help of an aged care placement consultant who can take control of the running around, paperwork and planning. Moving into residential care is a situation most people postpone for as long as possible until the point of necessity, often leaving little time to organise everything. If some initial planning were to be undertaken it could soothe the transition and reduce the stress at what is a critical turning point in people’s lives. Planning should include obtaining information on the financial implications of entering residential care, gaining information on the facilities available in your area and ensuring Wills and Powers of Attorney and Guardianship are up-to-date. A placement consultant can take over a lot of the stress of searching for and transitioning into an aged care home.

How a placement consultant can help

Every single transition to aged care is unique and a placement consultant will take several things in consideration to make sure the advice is right for your circumstances:   Are you looking for care options for a single person, or a couple?

Is there a physical condition that is deteriorating, are mental faculties and awareness impaired? 
   Is there acceptance or understanding of this part of the journey?

Negotiate and advocate for you

The aged care placement consultant advocates on your, and your family’s, behalf and is able to assist with the whole assessment process. They also complete all the necessary paperwork and application forms for entry into an aged care home which is helpful, as the applications can be quite daunting. They may suggest seeking financial advice where required. An aged care placement consultant helps share the load at this crucial time, can significantly speed up the time it usually takes to find a placement at a suitable home, thereby easing the transition into residential care. Be sure about your expectations of service and what the placement consultant is able to provide, including: 
   Face to face family meetings to discuss your situation and a respect for the emotions of all the family members involved
   Support and recommendations that cater for the specific requirements of your family and loved one

Counsel that prioritises family sensitivities, needs and special requests, before asking how much money is available and getting the status of the financial situation

Practical assistance with urgent placement situations – which they often are – where reducing the typical waiting times, or arranging respite care, is a necessity.

Choosing a placement consultant

Within South Australian and the Northern Territory, there is a range of well qualified placement consultants who can help you in your search for aged care options. When you’re choosing a placement consultant to support you through the aged care transition, look for someone who is an expert in building and nurturing relationships, who is unbiased and independent, and has no business investment or alignment with any aged care facility.

Their professional fees may differ and it is reasonable to advise them if you are working to a budget. Some placement consultants charge by the hour, whilst others offer a package of services for one fixed price. Ensure that you are advised of all the possible fees and costs up front. Finally make sure you feel comfortable talking with the placement consultant because your professional relationship will be significant in them understanding what you want and organising the appropriate care services.

Resolving family disputes

Placing a family member into care can be life changing. There are many factors, physical, social, psychological and financial; that may arise which families sometimes find too difficult to cope with by themselves. Every family member wants their opinion considered when it comes to making choices. Such situations can result in family conflicts. There are specialist health professionals who offer independent, non‑judgmental service, which can explore the subtleties of each situation and offer caring support in addition to counselling and conflict resolution.

Feelings of guilt

The journey into aged care is often a challenging and emotional time. Not only for you, the person going into care, but also for family members, who have sometimes cared for their loved one for a long time.

You may feel rejected and unloved or are scared to take the step of going into care and worry you’ll lose your independence. At the same time many family members feel guilty about not being able to look after their loved one anymore. They feel overwhelmed by the aged care system and can’t give the assistance that is required. Finding professional support may relieve you from negative beliefs and provide you with coping skills which can ease the difficult journey towards placing a loved one in care. Some placement consultants offer counselling as part of their services or may be able to refer you to a counsellor. You can find placement consultants in the products and services directory on pages 155 –156 or search on AgedCareGuide.com.au

Case management

The case management process uses a comprehensive approach to identify and implement health and social care services to optimise your health, quality of life and active participation in the community. Case management may be short or long term, or episodic. It plans for both current situations and your long term needs. Case Managers work in partnership with you, your carer and family, as well as other service providers to develop and implement individualised care plans and strategies best suited to your needs and goals.

Health based case managers are usually a nurse, social worker or allied health professional. Community based case managers generally have skills from a range of disciplines such as social workers, behavioural science, allied health or nursing.

Placement consultants

The type of care will depend on your individual needs. Some may only require coordination of support services such as home care. If you are eligible for a Government funded care package, case managers are often assigned through your service provider as part of your Home Care Package or home care services. If you have complex and multiple needs and you’re looking at different care options, or you would prefer not to use a Government funded package, you may choose to use the services of a private case manager.

Care planning

The aim is to provide appropriate and coordinated care that you have control over. Care plans are person-centred and prioritise the needs identified in the comprehensive assessment. The case manager implements the care plan and this may include identifying support services that other community care agencies will provide. Services include monitoring each individual to ensure the service provision is effective and financially accountable, to identify changes and make adjustments to the care plan if needed.

Private case management

If you are eligible for a Government funded care package, case managers are often assigned through your service provider as part of your Home Care Package or home care services. However, if you have complex and multiple needs and you’re looking at different care options, or you would prefer not to use a Government funded package, you may choose to use the services of a private case manager.

Private case management services are supplied by experienced, tertiary‑qualified case managers, to provide support services and coordination across a wide range of community and supportive health services. Waiting periods for private case management are generally reduced compared to some Government subsidised services. The duration of private case management is flexible, and may be shortterm or ongoing, depending on your needs. In some cases, such as if a person is cognitively impaired, the Public Trustee may assign a private case manager to organise their care.

How much does it cost?

Generally, an invoice for all care services purchased on your behalf will be provided to you each month. Many case managers offer no lock in contracts, meaning care can be arranged for one or many ongoing visits, and you only pay for what you use.

Expert financial advice imperative At a time when your main concern is the health and welfare of loved ones, you are faced with the complex financial issues of aged care. The financial decisions surrounding aged care may be overwhelming, due to the different funding mechanisms that apply to nursing homes and ‘Extra Service’ facilities. These can be further complicated by the impact that a move to care has in terms of the pension paid by Centrelink and the fact that the family home is treated differently for pension purposes than for aged care purposes. Just getting a basic understanding of what forms you need to complete, when to complete them and where to send them, can be a difficult path to navigate.

Paying for your care

You then need to consider important issues such as how to pay for any accommodation payment, whether to sell the family home or rent it out, how to maximise or keep the pension, all at a time when your main concern is finding a suitable place for your loved one to receive the care they need. By understanding the rules and being able to apply them to individual circumstances, financial advisors are able to save their clients thousands of dollars.

Financial advice

The service of a private case management is not Government-subsidised in any way, so you will be charged for all services. Hourly rates vary between private case management organisations so always ask for a breakdown of costs before employing them.

How an expert can help

The best financial strategies and options will depend on your specific circumstances, objectives and situation. A specialist aged care financial advisor can cut through the vast amount of information available and make sure that all aspects of your financial situation are addressed – the family home, accommodation payments and care fees, cash flow and investment planning. This will enable you to concentrate on finding the best place for care. A financial advisor can help you focus on the information and issues that are important to you and your specific financial situation. While every situation is different, there are some common elements of aged care financial advice which professional consultants often provide to their clients. Some of these elements include:

Financial advice

Strategies to fund accommodation payments   Financial modelling of multiple care options   Review and planning of tax implications   Maximising Government pensions   Minimising nursing home fees   Negotiating with aged care facilities Keep in mind, not all financial advisors are experienced in dealing with the financial complexity of entering into aged care.

Important questions to ask

Some important questions you should ask before engaging the services of a financial advisor include:

Do they specialise in dealing with aged care financial issues?   What experience do they have in aged care financial issues?   Will they provide you with an outline of all your options?   Will they provide their advice in ‘plain English’?   Will their advice be in writing?   Will they deal with Department of Veterans’ Affairs or Centerlink on your behalf?

Is the service a once-off or an ongoing service?

What will it cost?

Generally financial advisors charge a fee to help you with strategies to fund your aged care journey. Fees will vary and it pays to contact a number of experts for a quote on their services so you can compare.

Managing the complications of aged care

Many older Australians take up an aged care bed within one month of being assessed for residential aged care, this is often triggered by an unexpected event, such as a fall, or even a decline in the health of one member of a couple, affecting both of them.


SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

AgedCareGuide.com.au

93

This means you, your partner or your family must make important decisions amidst the emotional and logistical upheaval you face in a very short period. Reoccurring questions such as ‘what are your options?’, ‘what will it cost?’, ‘will you keep the house and rent it out or should it be sold?’ and ‘what will happen to your Age Pension?’ can require urgent answers during what is often the busiest time of your life. Throw in the payment/deposit system – Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) – negotiating various fees with a facility and filling in Centrelink forms, things can quickly become overwhelming.

Things you ‘should not’ do

Decide to rent the home before everyone discusses and accepts the consequences.

Decide to sell the home before understanding the Age Pension and aged care fee impact.

Choose how you will pay the aged care fees before understanding all of your options.

Make untested or inaccurate assumptions about your ability to meet the aged care costs.

Allowing or enabling the dominant family member to influence the decisions.

Incorrectly assume that all decisions must be made before you can get the care needed.

Instead seek help from a Certified Financial Planner who is experienced in aged care. An expert can help clarify what options are available to you and work through the benefits and disadvantages of each option.

Financial counselling

If you’re experiencing financial difficulties and have little income, you may be able to receive free financial counselling services to help you work through this. Operating from community organisations, financial counsellors can provide independent and confidential information, support and advice on a range of areas including consumer credit law, bankruptcy and debt collection laws, industry hardship policies and Government concession frameworks. They can help you in your negotiations with financial institutions and creditors and may also be able to assist with your budgeting and referral needs.

Aged care cost – What you ought to know Specialising in . . . AGED CARE FINANCIAL ADVICE

If your ability to live independently starts to decline and you need help with daily living activities such as cooking, cleaning and personal care, you may need to move into residential care. The costs for residential care are divided into three categories:

Cost of accommodation   Daily care fees   Extra services

The daily care fees can be up to $109,285 per year, but a large portion is paid by the Government. The contribution you would pay is between $18,845 and $46,599 depending on your financial means (as assessed by Services Australia). For most people however, the biggest concern is how to pay the large amounts quoted for a room. These range from around $100,000 to $2 million but will commonly be between $400,000 - $600,000. These lump sum payments are called Refundable Accommodation Deposits – RADs. Seeking financial advice on what options you have for payment and funding strategies may help to minimise your stress. Let’s examine some of the facts around accommodation payments.

Fact 1 – This is not lost money

The first thing to know about RADs (paid since 1 July 2014) is that they are fully refundable when you leave care, unless you allow the service provider to deduct other fees to help with your cashflow. Repayment is also guaranteed by the Federal Government if paid to an approved provider. This is an important thing to check when you are selecting a care provider.

Fact 2 – You don’t have to pay the lump sum

Accommodation payments are quoted as a lump sum but are also converted to an equivalent Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP). The interest rate used for this conversion is 4.10% (for entry from 1 October 2020).


SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

AgedCareGuide.com.au

95

For example, a RAD of $400,000 is converted to a DAP of $55.89 per day.

You don’t need to make this choice until 28 days after moving into care and the service is not able to pressure you to choose any particular option.

Fact 3 – Even with less assets, it may be affordable

If you don’t have enough assets to pay the RAD the first step may be to see if you qualify for Government concessions as a low-means resident – this would require your share of assessable assets to be less than $171,535.20. If you don’t qualify you will need to find a way to fund the full accommodation payment requested by the service. If you don’t have enough assets, paying a part RAD and part DAP may help, but only if you have surplus cashflow to pay the DAP. One further strategy option is to pay as much of the RAD as you can afford and then instruct the service provider to take the DAP (on the unpaid amount) out of the RAD you have paid. This option leaves your income to meet daily care fees and living expenses but reduces the RAD refunded when you leave.

Fact 4 – There is no pressure to act quickly or sign documents

Financial advice

If you accept a place in a residential service, you can choose whether to pay the full RAD, the full DAP or any combination of the two.

Understand that each group you may be dealing with, be it the hospital, social worker, aged care facility or Services Australia (Centrelink / My Aged Care) has a desire to assist you, but they do not put all the pieces of your puzzle together. Do not feel pressured into signing documents, completing forms or make decisions straight away. Seek advice first, as sometimes opportunities present themselves to improve your situation before you complete these forms.

Fact 5 – You should get advice – and not all advisers are ‘equal’

Identify an experienced and Accredited Aged Care Professional who can help you make the right decisions, outline the options available to you and the benefits and consequences of each decision you are considering. They can support you during stressful and tumultuous times, like mediating any family discussions, or help you create a clear aged care plan. Additionally, a financial advisor can review your financial situation and find what you can afford, develop strategies to improve your financial position, explain any Centrelink payments and aged care fee impacts, and review your estate plan to avoid any future issues.

Estate Planning A well prepared and executed estate plan can not only save your estate unnecessary costs in the future but can also save your loved ones from unnecessary stress after your death. Estate planning is the process in which you discuss with a legal practitioner what you want to happen with your estate, known as your assets, when you die.

Estate planning

It is a plan which involves you considering who you want to be in charge of your Will, who you want to benefit from your estate, your funeral wishes and who you want to look after your financial and personal/health matters if you were to lose capacity during your lifetime, for example by way of dementia or stroke. Effective estate planning ensures your assets are protected and distributed to the right people according to your wishes. A properly drafted, up‑to‑date Will is the only way that you can be sure your assets will be dealt with as you wish when you die.

Executors

In the Northern Territory, the executor of the Will must apply for a Grant of Probate through the Supreme Court for permission to take control of the estate. If there is no Will, the closest next of kin or relative can take the role as administrator of the estate, however, they need to apply to the Supreme Court to receive control of the estate. In South Australia, an executor of an estate will need to receive a Grant of Probate to administer the estate and handle the disposal of any assets. If you die without a valid Will, or your Will is invalid, your estate will be treated as an ‘intestate’ and your assets will be distributed among your surviving relatives. If there are no family members found, the state awards the assets to itself. In South Australia, if you get married your Will is automatically revoked. On the other hand, getting a divorce does not revoke your Will, but it does revoke any rights or distributions to your former spouse. If you decide to make a Will through a DIY Estate Planning kit, it can save you money now, but can often add to the costs of your estate administration. The only way to ensure that your loved ones are protected is to obtain proper legal advice regarding your estate planning. Contact the Trustee or Advocate services in your State or Territory for more information.

Enduring Power of Attorney – a ‘living Will’

It is a popular misconception that a family member can step in at this time as they may lack the legal authority to do so. By creating an Enduring Power of Attorney and nominating a trusted friend, family member or organisation, you put in place an effective plan to enable someone of your choosing to step in on your behalf when you are unable to make your own decisions. Think of it as a ‘living Will’. An Enduring Powers of Attorney can only manage your assets and financial matters. They cannot made any decisions around medical treatment or lifestyle. If you wish for someone to make medical treatment or lifestyle decisions on your behalf, it is recommended you nominate some one in your Advance Care Directive. The best time to create an Enduring Power of Attorney is while you are healthy and still capable of managing your affairs.

Choosing your own attorney

It is important to understand what a difference it can make to have a well-chosen Attorney. If you lose the ability to make important decisions, whether they be medical, lifestyle, financial or legal, and you do not have an Enduring Power of Attorney or Advance Care Directive, there may be conflict over who should make these decisions on your behalf. Family and carers may be uncertain about who can or should make decisions on your behalf. Often they may not understand the full implications of the choices that they are offered. Looking after your affairs requires responsibility, experience and the ability to deal with such matters. Often a spouse or family friend is appointed. Although increasingly in the case of important documents like an Enduring Power of Attorney, trustee companies are appointed because of their professional expertise. Once an Enduring Power of Attorney has been executed, people or organisations nominated should be made aware of the document. It is advisable that people closely involved with your affairs should also be notified.

Where to start?

Each Australian State and Territory has separate Powers of Attorney legislation. For more information and necessary forms you should contact the Trustee or Advocate services in your State or Territory.

Enduring Power of Attorney

Most people know you should write a Will to make sure your loved ones are provided for when you die, but what happens if you are left unable to make decisions for yourself due to accident, illness or other circumstances?

Supporting the rights of older people Most of the time aged care services work well and the people who use them are happy with the service they receive. However, sometimes a problem may arise, and you may need help to speak up and have the problem resolved. Many people feel uncomfortable raising a complaint or concern, but it is important to address your concerns early and not leave it to escalate. This can be particularly difficult if your complaint is about the care or services that you are dependent upon for meeting your most basic needs. Nevertheless, we live in a society where each and every one of us, regardless of our age, has rights as citizens and individuals.

If you feel unsure or unable to address your concerns with the service provider, you can ask an advocacy service to help you. An aged care advocate can assist you to take choice and control over your care services and work with you and your family on the best way to address your concerns with a provider. Their services are usually free and they can give you information, advise, and support you to express your concerns or even speak on your behalf. They will aim to achieve the best possible outcome for you. An advocate can:

Help you understand your rights and responsibilities   Listen to your concerns and discuss your options

Support you and give you confidence in addressing a concern

Raise a concern with the service provider or speak on your behalf

Advice is generally provided on consumer rights, human rights, aged care rights and responsibilities, financial exploitation, substitute decision-making and elder abuse prevention and response. Advocates can assist with negotiating changes to your care plan or ensuring the needs of people from culturally diverse backgrounds are met. They also deliver specialist community education, such as self-advocacy and how to meet the needs of people with dementia and special needs. There are free and independent advocacy services in every State and Territory that provide free telephone advice, community education and other assistance for older people. The Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) is a national network of nine State and Territory organisations that have been successfully delivering advocacy, information and education services to older people in metropolitan, regional, rural and remote Australia for over 25 years. Call 1800 700 600 to speak with an aged care advocate in your State or Territory or visit online at opan.com.au .

Memory change – is it dementia? Are you concerned about lapses in memory or other changes in your thinking or behaviour, or in someone close to you? Changes like these can have a number of possible causes, including stress, depression, pain, chronic illness or medications. See your doctor if you, or someone close to you, are experiencing these kinds of difficulties. Receiving a diagnosis is important because the underlying cause may be treatable.

Dementia support

However, major changes in memory are not normal at any age and should be taken seriously.

What is dementia?

Dementia is a general term to describe problems that involve progressive changes in memory, thinking, behaviour, and the ability to perform regular daily activities. There are more than 100 different types of dementia. The most common types are:

Alzheimer’s – which attacks the brain resulting in impaired memory, thinking and behaviour

Vascular dementia – caused by poor blood flow to the brain, depriving brain cells of nutrients and oxygen needed to function normally

Parkinson’s related dementia – a chronic, progressive neurological condition, which in later stages can affect cognitive functioning

Frontotemporal dementia – a disorder causing damage to brain cells in the frontal and temporal lobes, resulting in decline in social skills and emotional apathy. Behaviour and personality changes often occur before memory loss and speech problems

The early signs of dementia may include: memory loss – particularly recent memories or experiences, confusion with time or place, changes in mood and personality, difficulty with planning or problem solving, and difficulty in completing familiar tasks. Dementia can happen to anybody but is much more common after the age of 65. Dementia is not a normal part of ageing.

Dementia and aged care

For people with dementia, their memory loss affects their adjustment to new places and persons. The move to residential care should be considered before a crisis forces a more urgent response. Good care depends on how well the care facility responds to the residents’ individual needs, including their physical, social and mental wellbeing.

Where can I get help?

Support is vital for the person with dementia, as well as family members. Although the effects of dementia cannot yet be stopped or reversed, an early diagnosis gives families a chance to access services and plan for the future. There are a number of organisations that offer support, information, education and counselling to people affected by dementia. The National Dementia Helpline offers advice and counselling on 1800 180 500 or fightdementia.com.au, or read on for information about how the Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS) can help.

Changed behaviours

Dementia support

Behavioural change can occur for people with dementia, with many people experiencing changes to mood, thought, language, daily function or movement. The individual’s response to a particular circumstance or situation may alter or reduce as the dementia progresses. Changed behaviour as a response to a person’s dementia may reduce quality of life for the person living with dementia and can contribute to carer or care worker stress. It is important to take steps to support the person living with dementia and the people that provide care to them. Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS) can help explain the causes for changed behaviours and identify strategies to assist the person living with dementia and their carers. Changed behaviours may include:

Anxiety   Depressed mood   Hallucinations   Restlessness   Aggression   Sleep disturbance   Inappropriate toileting

Eating difficulties   Repeated calling out   Repetitive questioning   Wandering   Hoarding

Resistive to care

Unwanted sexualised behaviour

Specialised support

Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Services (DBMAS) is a free, nationwide service, funded by the Australian Government, supporting family and health and aged care professionals to better understand and respond to individual changes in behaviour and emotions.

The service can help explain the causes for changed behaviours and identify strategies to assist the person living with dementia and their carers. It offers specialised support, assessment, intervention and advice to assist carers and care workers of people with dementia where behaviours may impact on their care. DBMAS has a multi-disciplinary team of experienced health care professionals such as registered nurses, social workers, clinical psychologists, geriatricians, speech pathologists, and dietitians.

DBMAS is committed to providing culturally sensitive and effective communication. If you require an interpreter service, you can call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 13 14 50 and ask them to contact the DBMAS service. For more information, contact DBMAS on 1800 699 799 or visit dementia.com.au .

Whether you live in your own home or in a residential aged care home, when the end of life approaches you may require additional support. The primary goal of palliative care is to provide supportive care and improve the patient’s quality of life by addressing any painful or distressing symptoms. A wide range of medical professionals can be involved in the end of life process. Not everyone who is approaching the end of life will need specialist palliative care services. Palliative care is divided into three subgroups: 1.  P rimary care – For people who only require services from their primary health care professional(s). 2.  I ntermediate care – Advice is provided by specialist palliative care services but care is still given by health care professional(s). 3.  Complex care – This group requires care from specialist practitioners. Patients are commonly referred to specialist palliative care services where they will receive the required care.

Aged Care Guide

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NT 2021

Services to help at home

Services that may help you to stay in the comfort of your own home can include:

a qualified nurse to dress a wound or provide continence advice;   household jobs like cleaning, clothes washing and ironing;   help with bathing or showering, dressing, hair care and going to the toilet;

meals and other food services – assistance with preparing and eating meals, or help for those with special diets; and

helping to travel to shopping centres or appointments.

Palliative care in a nursing home

For palliative care in a residential aged care setting, the Government has developed a series of guidelines, which provides support and guidance to residential aged care facilities in providing palliative care.

End of life care

The Guidelines for a Palliative Approach in Residential Aged Care outline three forms of palliative care in residential aged care, which include:

A palliative approach – Aims to improve the quality of life

for residents with a life limiting illness. This can be done by reducing their suffering through early identification, assessment and treatment of pain, and handling their physical, cultural, psychological, social and spiritual needs. The underlying philosophy is a positive and open attitude towards death and dying.

Specialised palliative service provision – Involves referral to a specialised palliative team or health care practitioner.

End of life (terminal) care – This form of palliative care is appropriate when the resident is in the final days or weeks of life and care decisions may need to be reviewed more frequently.

Residents with dementia

Palliative care for residents living with dementia often requires a different approach than palliative care for people with a terminal condition, as the process can take place over a longer period of time. Declining cognition can mean that a dying person with dementia is unlikely to have the capacity to make decisions or communicate their wishes regarding care. This may mean that any such decisions must be made much earlier in the course of dementia than for other illnesses, or alternatively, must be made by proxies on behalf of the dying person.

Family and friends

Providing end of life care can be particularly intense for family and friend carers. While managing their own grief and the grief of others, carers will be providing high level physical and emotional support that a patient needs at the end of life. Palliative care not only supports patients, but also their friends and families. For more information about palliative care services, talk to your GP or contact your community health centre.

Carer support There are over 2.5 million unpaid carers across Australia. The caring role is a valuable and rewarding job but also a tough one, often balancing work, family and friends while making sure your loved one is well looked after. With more older Australians looking to stay at home longer, more family and friends of older people are finding themselves in a carer role than ever before. Being a carer can have a huge impact on your life, and physical and mental wellbeing, as well as being isolating at times.

Support groups

Caring is a very rewarding role to undertake, however, caring can also be very demanding. Caring for somebody can nearly be a full-time job, it’s easy to become out of touch with friends or family. Going to carer support groups provides time to relax, have some fun and connect with others outside of your caring duties. Community run carer support groups can offer a safe and understanding environment to talk about your caring role. These groups may be organised around caring for someone with a particular need such as Parkinson’s or dementia. Support groups are an opportunity for you to connect with other carers who understand and have experienced the pressures of being a carer, and a place to share experiences and advice. Carer support groups are completely confidential and can also help you to:

Discover new information   Go to education or training workshops   Participate and get involved in activities   Head along to relaxing outings

Counselling services

Counselling is another great option to manage some of the pressures you may experience as a carer. A professional counsellor can provide advice on any situation you are facing, or even just listen to the struggles of everyday life. Depending on what you require, counselling can help with behaviour management, coping strategies, loss and grief, and any relationship challenges.

Carer support

There are some great support options available to assist you with practical and emotional support and you may be eligible for financial support from the Australian Government.

Carer support

Since stressful situations can’t always be avoided, a counselling program can help you deal with different hurdles in a more productive way and help you face the caring role feeling supported and with renewed energy.

Booked Respite Beds — Dedicated respite beds that should be booked in advance. Prior assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) is required.

Specialist Palliative Care — Specialised care services for those nearing the end of their life in an aged care facility. Staff are trained in pain management and other palliative care measures.

Extra Services — A service offering a ‘higher’ standard of accommodation, including increased entertainment and food choices at an additional cost to the resident.

Transition Care Beds — A bed-based service allowing older people more time and support post-hospitalisation in a ‘non‑hospital’ environment to optimise their functional capacity.

Pets on Premises — The facility owns dogs or cats that are able to interact freely with residents. Some facilities may consider you bringing your small pets.

Culturally Specific — Care services catering to the needs of those from non-English speaking, or culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Seldom exclusive, for example all people are welcome. The home has special knowledge of the referenced culture or group.

Secure Dementia Unit — Safe and secure wing or unit of the aged care facility offering specialised care to those living with dementia. Secure Garden — An onsite secure gated garden for residents (especially those with dementia) to enjoy for recreation or therapy.

Retirement Living Onsite — Retirement living services/village co-located on the same geographic site as the aged care facility.

Home Care Packages directory – Approved Providers Home Care Package approved providers provide home care and support services to members of the community who live at home. If you’ve been approved for a Government funded Home Care Package of any type you may approach any Home Care Package approved provider to provide the services you need. Some providers may only provide services in one region while others can service multiple areas. On the following pages you’ll find alphabetical lists of approved providers in SA. To help you know which approved providers offer services in a certain region, we’ve included coloured bars down the left hand side of the directory pages. The list below is a quick reference guide to help you find in which group council districts are listed. For example Onkaparinga LGA is grouped under Southern. The colour coded maps on the opposite page show you which council districts are grouped together.

How to read the HCP table

The table on the next few pages lists approved HCP providers in alphabetical order, detailing the HCP levels they offer and if they offer any package supplements. Ethnicity, country or cultural groups listed under ‘Notes’ applies to all package levels in that row. If service providers have an advertisement in this Guide, then the page number of the advert is listed in red under ‘Advert Page’. The ‘DPS Web ID’ number can be used as a unique identifier to find out more information on AgedCareGuide.com.au . The same type of care and services are provided under each HCP level of care, and these may include transport, domestic assistance, social support, personal care, home maintenance, home modification, nursing care, food services and medication assistance. The hours of care are increased at each level of care, i.e. more hours of care and services are provided under HCP Level 4 and the least under HCP Level 1. Package supplements, like the Dementia Supplement Zand the Veterans’ Supplement R, are offered to eligible persons only. Some packages are specifically for people who are financially or socially disadvantaged Y, people with housing needs or at risk of homelessness e, or for people who live in rural or remote areas t. The Cultural Environment g indicates providers offerings services for people from culturally diverse backgrounds. Based on your care needs, an ACAT assessment will determine what level of care you are eligible for and if any supplements apply to you. These icons help you find the packages that are most suitable for you.

Home Care Packages directory – Approved Providers Home Care Package approved providers provide home care and support services to members of the community who live at home. If you’ve been approved for a Government funded Home Care Package of any type you may approach any Home Care Package approved provider to provide the services you need. Some providers may only provide services in one region while others can service multiple areas. On the following pages you’ll find alphabetical lists of approved providers in NT. To help you know which approved providers offer services in a certain region, we’ve included coloured bars down the left hand side of the directory pages. The list below is a quick reference guide to help you find in which group council districts are listed. For example Alice Springs LGA is grouped under Southern. The colour coded map on page 140 show you which council districts are grouped together.

How to read the HCP table The table on the next few pages lists Home Care Packages approved providers in alphabetical order, detailing the Home Care Packages level they offer and if they offer any package supplements. Ethnicity, country or cultural groups listed under ‘Notes’ applies to all package levels in that row. If service providers have an advertisement in this Guide, then the page number of the advert is listed in red under ‘Advert Page’. The ‘DPS Web ID’ number can be used as a unique identifier to find out more information on AgedCareGuide.com.au. The same type of care and services are provided under each Home Care Package level of care, and these may include transport, domestic assistance, social support, personal care, home maintenance, home modification, nursing care, food services and medication assistance. The hours of care are increased at each level of care i.e. more hours of care and services are provided under Home Care Package Level 4 and the least under Home Care Package Level 1. Package supplements, like the Dementia Supplement Zand the Veterans’ Supplement R, are offered to eligible persons only. Some packages are specifically for people who are financially or socially disadvantaged Y, people with housing needs or at risk of homelessness e, or for people who live in rural, remote or isolated areas t. The Cultural Environment g indicates providers offerings services for people from culturally diverse backgrounds. Based on your care needs, an ACAT assessment will determine what level of care you are eligible for and if any supplements apply to you.
