Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

From the Managing Editor Welcome to the 21st edition of the Aged Care Guide

Victoria. 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.

Servicing the community with care • Community based support services provided throughout metropolitan Melbourne. • Maintaining independence and quality of life. • Services including personal care, home care, respite, overnight care, 24 hour care and home and garden maintenance. • Services available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. • Now offering Level 1-4 Home Care Packages.

Omni-Care Pty Ltd Ground Flr, 110 Chifley Dr Preston, Victoria 3072 Ph: 03 9484 8102 Fax: 03 9484 8134 info@omni-care.com.au www.omni-care.com.au

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 Ratings and Reviews on

AgedCareGuide.com.au, 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

VICTORIA 2021/22

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.

COTA message

We are the leading advocate for much greater consumer choice and control in aged care. We had a major input to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and to the Federal Government’s response to the Commission’s Final Report. The aged care reform process has been underway for a while, starting with the Labor Government’s 2012 ‘Living Longer Living Better’ package which heavily ramped up home care packages and introduced ‘consumer directed care’. This was followed by the Coalition Government’s 2018 Federal Budget package ‘More Choices for a Longer Life’, which COTA Australia partnered in developing. The Royal Commission was called in October 2018 and the Commission presented its Final Report on 26 February 2021, with the Government responding in the Federal Budget on 11 May 2021. In the 2021/22 Budget, the Government has committed almost $18 billion extra over the next four years to increase the supply and funding of both home care and residential care, provide extra support for family carers and for people with dementia and their carers, and much more. There will be at least 80,000 new home care packages by mid-2023, bringing the total number to 276,000 – more than the number of residential beds; and the current home care waiting list will be gone. A new home care program will be developed by 2023 that will design individual packages for each person. In residential care there will be more staff spending more time with residents, better food where that’s not the case now, stronger clinical care standards, a new funding formula, and prices set by an independent authority. All providers will experience much greater transparency and exposure about services, fees, staffing quality measures and consumer experience. Most excitingly, by 2024 the bed licences system will be abolished and people will have control of their residential care funding. This will also mean good providers can expand their services without needing bed licences. Another COTA initiative is a program of 500 Community Care Finders around Australia to help people navigate aged care and be connected to services. There will also be a doubling of the number of consumer advocates. 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. COTA Australia’s partnership with DPS 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 helping strengthen consumer information and choice. This has always been a goal for DPS since its inception.”

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

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 options are available to you. What is aged care?

Aged care ??? explained

Aged care is a term most easily understood as being nursing homes and home care. It may also refer to community services, specific health care services delivered in a day centre setting, assisted living options as well as products and equipment available to assist older people. 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. 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 15 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 21. A comprehensive list of Government funded services is included 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, provided under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). See page 33 for more information about home and community respite care or page 86 for respite in a residential aged care facility.

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.


AgedCareGuide.com.au

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 Service (ACAS). See page 55 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 Residential Services (SRS) or supported and assisted living complexes. See page 103 and 105 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. Daily care is generally not included but some providers may offer support services at an additional charge or this can be accessed separately through Government funded home support options. See page 107 for advice on retirement accommodation.

How to use the Aged Care Guide

The articles up to page 142 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 (see pages 155 –196; Supported Residential Services and supported living options (see pages 198-200); retirement accommodation (see pages 200 –202); home care packages (see pages 203 –215); and facilities or services specific to your cultural background (see pages 215 –223).

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 232 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 152 –154. 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 215 –223.

was just as worried as you are.

Choosing the next step in life is scary. It can be overwhelming when you’re about to leave everything familiar behind. Sales people are telling you about how great their food is. What wonderful hotel services they have. How new and shiny their rooms are. And you’re thinking “these should be my basic rights!” What really matters, is that you feel you are still going to live a meaningful life.

Choice and relationships are at the core of this. Because when you can trust the people around you, and feel comfortable to be yourself, when you can choose what a meaningful life looks like, and be supported to live it, that’s when you’ll feel at home. That’s why at St Vincent’s, residents aren’t a checklist. We aren’t just providing a service... We are looking after family. Family like Mary.

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 some basic in home support or more intensive support through 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 To assist with your care needs is a Government priority, so you can continue living in the comfort of your own home where possible. Home care products and services range from assistance with daily chores to personal care, providing meals, transport assistance, as well as equipment such as a ramp, walking frame or shower rail to help you live independently in your own home.

Support at home

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.

Placed and resized.indd 1

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. This information should assist in choosing the best provider for you, as well as changing providers if you need. CDC allows you to determine how much involvement you wish to have when managing your package. It also allows for more transparency around how your package is funded and spent. All home care services you receive should include ongoing monitoring and reviews from the provider to make sure your package is meeting your needs.

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 50 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 21 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

Personal care – help with bathing, showering, dressing, or toileting

Our services include: • Home Care Packages Level 1-4 • Nursing / Palliative Care • Home Care • Personal Care • Respite Care • Allied Health • Post-Acute Care • Live-in 24 hour/Overnight Care • Home Maintenance • Overnight Care • Dementia Care • Child Care • Transportation

Home maintenance – minor general repair and care of your house or yard, for example, changing light bulbs or replacing tap washers

Home modification – minor installation of safety aids such as alarms, ramps and support rails in your home

Nursing care – a qualified nurse comes to your home and may, for example, dress a wound or provide continence advice

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

CHSP

Food services – If you are finding it difficult to prepare meals,

services may include providing meals at a community centre, help 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 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.

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). They 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. Go to page 50 to read more about RAS assessments.

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. 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. 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 224 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 amount of funding is different 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. The ACAS assesses the types of care needs you may require. Someone eligible for Levels 3 and 4 HCPs 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.

Package supplements

Package supplements are available with any of the four levels of Home Care Packages to help with the cost of meeting specific care needs. For example the Z Dementia Supplement is for people with dementia and the R Veterans’ Supplement for veterans with an accepted mental health condition. 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.

Some providers might cater for people with a certain g cultural background or have staff that speak a foreign language.

Your care provider will apply for these subsidies and ensure you meet the eligibility criteria. For a list of HCP providers, see pages 203 –215.

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.

Are you eligible?

To receive a Home Care Package you will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS). The ACAS 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.

For more details about ACAS go to page 51 or call 1800 200 422 to organise 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. This may take a number of weeks or even months. 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. 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 Packages

The ACAS 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.

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

Home Care Agreement

This agreement is made between you and your provider and covers information such as 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. The care plan you agree to should include:

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

Home Care Packages

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 (1 July 2021 rates): Home Care Package

Daily subsidy amount

Annual amount

Level 1

$ 24.73

$ 9,026.45

Level 2

$ 43.50

$ 15,877.50

Level 3

$ 94.66

$ 34,550.90

Level 4

$ 143.50

$ 52,377.50

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. 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 Home Care 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.


AgedCareGuide.com.au

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. Maximum fees for each level currently are: Home Care Package

Maximum basic daily fee

Fortnight amount

Level 1

$ 9.72

$ 136.08

Level 2

$ 10.28

$ 143.92

Level 3

$ 10.57

$ 147.98

Level 4

$ 10.85

$ 151.90

There may be additional benefits available depending on your personal circumstances, contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 for more details. If your income is higher than the Age Pension you may be required to pay extra for your care. How much extra depends on your income and unavoidable expenses, such as pharmaceutical bills, rent, utilities and other living expenses. However, the maximum amount you can be asked to pay over the maximum basic daily fee for a HCP, is up to 50 percent of your income exceeding the maximum base rate of the Age Pension. As of 1 July 2021 the Age Pension amount is $868.30 per fortnight for a single person.

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 $5,667.73 per annum (1 July 2021 rates). If you have an income of more than $54,220.40 per year, you will pay an income tested care fee on a sliding scale up to a total of $11,335.48 per annum. However, no one will pay more than $68,012.98 in an income tested care fee over their lifetime (1 July 2021 rates). Your assets, including the family home, are excluded from the means testing arrangements for home care.

Home Care Packages

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. 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 .

Self-managing your Home Care Package

Self-managing your HCP The person who knows best about you and your needs, is you. After making decisions for yourself throughout your adult life, it makes sense that you would want to maintain that control by self‑managing your Home Care Package (HCP). You may decide to organise and manage the coordination of your own supports in your package rather than utilise a case manager that would commonly deal with your package on your behalf and direct the care and support you receive. As a consumer, you have every right to exercise that freedom to self‑manage your package. Some people who self-manage their own package find they have more choice and control over their HCP than before. Additionally, people who self-manage their care can cut down on the administration costs and case management fees that they would normally have to pay. This means more of your package funding can go towards the care and services you require. When you self-manage your HCP, you get to choose an approved provider, pick and manage your support workers, decide when you want to receive these services and negotiate how much you pay for the provided services.

Working in partnership

Choosing to self-manage your own package doesn’t mean you are doing this all by yourself either. The provider you choose will assist you in receiving the correct care and services. Your provider has an obligation to provide you with all the information you need to successfully self-manage your HCP and support you through the self-managing process. You will work in partnership with your provider to decide how involved you want to be when it comes to managing your care. This means you can set boundaries and expectations with your provider on what they should be covering and what tasks you will be organising. When considering self-management of your package, you need to consider whether you have the time and energy to undertake this role. For instance, if you have been diagnosed with dementia, it may not be the best option for you. However, you can ask your partner or loved one to self-manage your package on your behalf. It is important to keep in mind that some providers may have policies around self-management, so you should definitely shop around and enquire with providers about how they support clients who wish to self‑manage their package.

Private home care Rather than a Government funded service, you may choose a private home care provider and pay for services out of your own pocket. 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

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 looking into home care services, here are some things to investigate and ask the provider you are considering:

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?

Do they provide documents about financial arrangements before 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, who liaises with you to create a plan that meets your needs?

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.

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 Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). 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;

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.

Who is the organisation’s main contact for you?

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

Respite is a great opportunity for the carer to take time off from their caring duties and reduce the likelihood of carer burnout. The carer can be reassured that their loved one is being taken care of while they aren’t there. It is not uncommon for carers to experience guilt organising their loved ones for respite care, however, it can be beneficial for both parties and can ensure that the caring duties are able to continue into the future. Most people that are involved in respite care enjoy the different activities they get up to during the day and the variety it adds to their social calender. They also get to meet new people and make friends. During the person’s respite care, the carer can take time for themselves or get to any chores or jobs they haven’t been able to get to yet.

Eligibility

Respite at home

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 86.

Regaining your independence

Fees

Flexible restorative care

You may be charged a contribution fee to cover the cost of your transition care. Talk to your provider about what fees apply and how much you need to pay. The Government has set a maximum amount you can be asked to contribute. For transition care received in your own home, the maximum amount is currently $10.85 per day (1 July 2021 rates), which is 17.5 percent of the single Aged Pension. For care delivered in a ‘live-in’ setting, such as a residential aged care facility, the maximum amount you can be asked to pay is $52.71 per day, or 85 percent of the single aged pension (1 July 2021 rates). 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 on pages 155 –196.

Flexible restorative care

To help regain your independence if you have not been admitted to hospital, the Government has introduced a 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. Federal Government created the program to reverse or slow functional decline in older people and help improve their health and wellbeing through the time-limited service. 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.


VICTORIA 2021/22

Services can be delivered at your home, in a nursing home or a combination of both. 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. The STRC program is not linked to any other Government funded home support and you will be able to access the program even if you’re already receiving support through the CHSP. If you are currently receiving a Government funded Home Care Package, have received transition care in the last six months, or live in residential aged care, you will not be eligible to receive the STRC program. You do need an assessment to access the program. This assessment is done by the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) and is only valid for six months. You can access the STRC program twice over a 12 month period.

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. Nursing 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. There is a fee you will need to pay towards the VHC program. It is cost per service, currently at a $5 per hour co-payment, however, there is a limit to how much you will pay. For instance, the maximum co-payment for domestic assistance is $5 per week, whereas personal care is limited to $10 per week. If you can’t afford the co-payments, you can apply to have these fees waived. Contact the Veterans’ Home Care Assessment Agency on 1300 550 450 to find out what support services are available to you and how you can access them.

Interactive activities at these centres may include arts and craft, cooking, history, gardening, self help, and mutual problem solving. Types of CBC services available include day care, dementia day care, overnight respite, dementia group, social group, and respite care. CBC fees and charges may vary from centre-to-centre, with some CBCs charging a daily fee to cover everything from transport to group excursions/outings, and meals or light refreshments.

Day Therapy Centres Day Therapy Centres (DTC) offer services to older people living in the community and residents of Government funded aged care homes. If you are struggling with the day to day activities, losing your mobility, or have a chronic health problem, a Day Therapy Centre may be a great option for you. There are more than 150 Day Therapy Centres Australia-wide offering:

physiotherapy   social work   preventative and/or personal therapies   speech therapy   transport to and from the DTC   podiatry   food at the DTC   diversional therapy   and many other services. The aim of the program is to assist people to either maintain or recover a level of independence. However, there is the added benefit of social inclusion and engagement with other older people in the community. Day Therapy Centres can improve both your physical and mental wellbeing, encourage healthy memory, and also targets any aged related health problems you may have. Generally, the DTC will develop an individualised care plan for you and this may include recommendations for therapy and referrals to other service providers where necessary. The Government subsidises most Day Therapy Centres, making them more accessible for people requiring those services. You may be required to pay a small negotiated fee for services, however, if you are unable to pay you may not be refused access to DTC services. If you find yourself in need of therapy service like those listed, you will need to find out if you’re eligible via a RAS assessment. Day Therapy Centres are available for people aged 65 and over, or if you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) aged 50 and over. Call My Aged Care for an assessment, ask for a referral code, and then choose the DTC you wish to attend. You’ll find a list of Day Therapy Centres on pages 227-228 of this Guide.

Community Visitors Scheme

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. One example is the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS), which targets loneliness and isolation amongst older Australians through companionship. The initiative from the Department of Health uses volunteer visitors to meet with people on a regular basis to provide friendship and social inclusion. The service focuses purely on companionship and the volunteer will not provide personal assistance such as cleaning, personal care or nursing. As Australia’s population ages and people are living longer, the CVS is becoming incredibly important for social interaction and life changing engagement. 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?

Under the Scheme, 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 the 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, access your personal or care record information, provide any form of nursing or personal care, or follow up a complaint about your care. Think of your volunteer visitor as a dear friend that has come over for a cup of coffee and a chat. To be eligible for the CVS, you have to be an older Australian who is at risk of or experiences loneliness, isolation or cultural loneliness.

However, you have to be receiving Government subsidised residential aged care or a Home Care Package to be eligible for visits. For further information about the program in Victoria, contact the Southern Migrant and Refugee Centre (SMRC) on 03 9767 1900 or visit smrc.org.au/community-visitors-scheme.

Transport services

There may be times when friends, family and neighbours are unable to help out. While transport can be part of Government funded supports, there is also a range of free or subsidised transport options available through a variety of outlets.

Community organisations

In Victoria, there are many volunteer groups, such as local churches, clubs or Rotary groups, that support frail elderly people over 65 years of age in many ways, including through transport services. These community volunteer transport services provide either direct transport or assist older people in accessing public transport. They can take you to appointments, out and about in your community, visit friends and family, or go to the shops. Most of these community schemes or groups are staffed by volunteer drivers. Depending on the organisation the services may be free or you may have to pay a small contribution towards the organisation. St John’s Ambulance Australia provides a community transport service and patient transport service in most States or Territories. These services can support older people who need to attend medical appointments or hospital, visit loved ones, attend events or family gatherings, or for grocery shopping.

Local Councils

Victoria’s local councils frequently offer transport in two forms – community buses and personal transport. Some councils operate community buses on a weekly basis with many offering the convenience of door to door pickup and drop-off. As well as taking residents to shopping centres, many council-run community buses visit other services and activities, such as libraries, senior’s clubs and groups. Some councils offer personal transport for medical, wellbeing and other essential appointments. There is usually a nominal minimal charge for using the community bus which may vary depending on where it is going and whether you require a return journey. Contact your local council for information about transport in your area.

Transport services

Getting to appointments, the shops or social events can be challenging if you don’t have a car, and even more challenging if you have mobility issues.

Assistive technology options 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.

Assistive technology

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 which aim to help them live more satisfying and productive lives.

Improve access and safety at home

Creating a safe living space is critical to keep your independence and prevent injuries. Whether it’s slippery floors or tripping over electrical cords, 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 over. Keep hallways and staircases clear from clutter and make sure you check outside areas for clutter and tripping hazards as well.

Install grab bars and hand rails 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. Replace those items and use non-slip mats for more effective fall prevention.

Inadequate lighting can also contribute to falls or injury so install

brighter light bulbs where needed and make sure stairways and narrow hallways are properly lit. Make sure you have easy access to bedside lamps and consider using motion sensor lights to create better guidance for moving around your house at night.

Even with grab rails, stairs can present a significant falling hazard. Non-slip strips can help make stairs safer to go up and down or consider having a stair lift installed for easier access to the second level.

Personal alarms that can detect falls, call for help in an emergency

or have a GPS tracker can be used to help you feel safe and secure in your own home or when you’re out in the community.

Create a safer home

If you require assistive technology on a permanent or long term basis for a health or ageing-related reason and are a permanent resident of Victoria, you may be eligible for the Victorian Aids and Equipment Program.

Understanding and managing incontinence With one in four Australians experiencing bladder and/or bowel control problems, incontinence is nothing to be ashamed of. Common problems include leakage from the bladder and/or bowel, urgency, waking frequently at night to pass urine, and constipation. Whilst incontinence affects people of all ages and genders, it is more common in women, with studies showing 80% of people with urinary incontinence are women, and problems become more common as you age. The good news about incontinence is that, in most cases, it can be either cured or better managed so it doesn’t disrupt your everyday life.

Incontinence

What is incontinence?

There are two types of incontinence:

Urinary incontinence, which can appear in different levels of severity, for instance, it could involve ‘leaking’ when you laugh, sneeze, or cough, or it could mean complete loss of control over your bladder

Faecal incontinence, referring to bowel leakage or involuntary bowel movements but may also include excessive wind or straining.

If you have either, you should talk to your doctor for professional advice on how to manage the condition. While incontinence can appear at any stage of your life, the risk of developing incontinence is more increased in older people. Generally, incontinence is linked to other health conditions, such as dementia, diabetes, heart conditions, or prostate problems.

Create good habits

It’s important to keep good bladder and bowel habits to reduce the risk of incontinence. The Continence Foundation of Australia recommends making changes to your diet and lifestyle that can make all the difference in managing your incontinence. Drink six to eight glasses of fluid a day, as shying away from drinking to try to stop bladder control issues can actually exacerbate the problem. Make sure there’s enough fiber in your diet and limit tea, coffee and alcohol. Take your time to empty your bladder properly, don’t strain or go to the toilet ‘just in case’. Incorporating exercise in your daily routine can have a good effect on your bowel movements and strengthen your pelvic floor. The pelvic floor muscles support the bladder and bowel and play an important role in bladder and bowel control.

Where to get help?

If you’re experiencing bladder or bowel control issues it’s important to have a continence assessment to rule out any underlying medical problems.

They can provide information and advice, connect you to a wide range of professionals who can help with continence management and help you understand what different continence aids and subsidies may be available to you.

Products for incontinence

There are a lot of products available these days that can help with managing your incontinence, no matter the severity. These products include disposable or reusable pads and pants, mattress and chair protectors, catheters, and more. Most of these incontinence aids can be found in supermarkets and pharmacies for purchase. If you need extra assistance, you can engage the help of a continence nurse advisor, who can discuss your needs and help you find products that will best manage your incontinence. If you receive support through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP), you can access continence advisory services, or if you have a Home Care Package (HCP), you may be able to receive funding from the Government for incontinence aids. Additionally, the Government’s Continence Aids Payment Scheme (CAPS) is available to people with permanent or severe incontinence. You cannot access CAPS if you receive a Home Care Package. Visit the Department of Health website at health.gov.au for more information.

Order Products Access all the healthcare products and information you need for the clients, patients or residents you support.

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.

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. 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 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 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 if you need help with this.

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.

Visit myagedcare.gov.au or call 1800 200 422 for more information.

Referral code

Once you’ve been assessed and found eligible for services, whether they’re for a Home Care Package, Transition Care or to access a nursing home, 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. They’ll be also able to access the funding allocated to you. 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. A provider won’t be able to start charging you fees until they begin delivering services to you or you have accepted a place in an aged care home. 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.

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.

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 15 or call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to request a RAS assessment.

If you are no longer able to manage at home without basic assistance, the ACAS helps you, and your carers, determine what kind of care will best meet your needs. This may be a Home Care Package (see page 21) provided to you in your own home or residential care in an aged care home (see page 55). The ACAS is staffed by doctors, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists and other health professionals.

How the assessment works

A member of your local ACAS 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 ACAS 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 ACAS is Government funded. Carers, relatives or close friends are encouraged to be involved in the discussion. The ACAS 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 ACAS 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 ACAS when making your appointment.

Referral code

If the ACAS 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 ACAS?

If you have a complaint or are not satisfied with the assessment or recommendations, you should advise the person in charge of the ACAS. If you cannot reach an agreement, you can appeal the decision. You will be sent a letter by the ACAS 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 ACAS assessment.

Aged care homes If you are unable to continue living independently at home, you may choose to move into an aged care home.

Aged care homes

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 Service (ACAS). There are also non Government funded aged care homes which are called supported or assisted living complexes. These do not require ACAS 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. You can also contact My Aged Care direct or a representative, like a family member or friend, can do this on your behalf. Call 1800 200 422 to organise an ACAS assessment. See page 51 for information about ACAS.

The next step

After being approved by an ACAS 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.

Homes and their services

Aged care homes provide accommodation ranging from single rooms with ensuites to rooms with shared bathroom facilities. They must provide specified care and services to all residents at no additional cost. Services that must be provided at no additional charge for all residents who need them, irrespective of their level of care needs, include:   basic accommodation related services such as beds, mattresses, linen, bedside lockers and chairs   general laundry and cleaning services

maintenance of buildings and grounds   the provision of staff continuously on call to provide emergency assistance

assistance with personal care such as bathing, going to the toilet, eating and dressing   assistance with mobility and communication

assistance in obtaining specialised therapy services, or a health practitioner service   meals, including special diets

toiletry goods such as towels, washers, soap and toilet paper   support for people with cognitive impairment like dementia   social and recreational activities   rehabilitation support

Additional services as appropriate to individual care needs where a fee may apply include:   goods to assist with toileting and continence aids

therapy services such as speech therapy, podiatry, occupational, recreational and physiotherapy

registered nurses to assess, plan and manage care, including complex pain or wound management, palliative care program, special feeding, dialysis and oxygen therapy For people with dementia, it is important to ask a home whether it offers separate or secure dementia specific units or wings. 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 215   –223 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 even have live-in pets. You’ll find these C listed in the directory section of this guide, starting on page 156.

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. It monitors residential aged care services to ensure their compliance with the accreditation standards.

Aged care homes

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 .

Quality standards

The Aged Care Quality Standards were introduced in 2019 as a new measure of quality in aged care. The eight new standards 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 are the expectations of 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.

Complaints

If you have concerns or are unhappy about the standard of care you are receiving, you or your representatives are strongly encouraged to firstly take all complaints to the facility management for resolution. It’s always best to address concerns rather than leaving it to escalate. If you don’t feel comfortable to deal with it yourself, you can ask an advocacy service to help you. If the matter is not resolved, you can then make complaints to the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission on 1800 951 822 or visit agedcarequality.gov.au . Anyone can make a complaint about anything that may constitute a breach of the service provider’s responsibilities to past or present residents.

Costs for residential care 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 121 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:

Deloraine Aged Care is a 64-bed ageing in place family-owned residential aged care facility in the heart of Greensborough. Deloraine is spacious and tastefully decorated throughout with quality fittings and furniture. Our location features: ❖ Extensive leisure/lifestyle program and facility bus for outings. ❖ Lovely gardens, balconies and courtyard areas. ❖ Nutritious and appetising meals from our kitchen ❖ On-site hairdressing salon ❖ On-site laundry ❖ Fully staffed by qualified nurses who are present 24 hours a day to provide quality care.

Whether your loved one requires permanent care, respite care or palliative care – at Deloraine you are always welcome

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 maximum base rate of the Age Pension for a single person.

Aged care costs

This is the same amount you will be charged if you’re staying in a nursing home for a temporary stay as a respite resident. It is generally adjusted each March and September at the same time as the Age Pension. As of 1 July 2021, the maximum Basic Daily Fee is $52.71 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. 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.

How much will I pay?

If you can afford to, you will pay a basic fee of up to 85 percent of the maximum base rate of the Age Pension, for a single person, 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. No one will need to pay a care fee greater than the cost of their care.


VICTORIA 2021/22

AgedCareGuide.com.au

63

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 $173,075.20 (July 2021 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 $51,000 in assets and income, you can be asked to pay an accommodation payment, but you must be left with at least $51,000 in assets after your payment (Rates as at 1 July 2021).

Aged care costs

In addition, an annual cap of $28,338.71 will apply to your means tested contribution to your care costs, together with a lifetime cap of $68,012.98 for means tested care fees (Rates as at 1 July 2021).

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.

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.

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 July 2021, it is 4.04 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 4.04% / 365 = $22.13 per day (MPIR from 1 July 2021).

Applying to aged care homes As soon as you have been approved by an Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) 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.

Waiting for residential care

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. Generally, bed places are offered to people on the wait list who have a health priority or have been waiting for a place and have risen to the top of the waiting list. You can be on as many waiting lists for facilities as you would like, but once you accept a vacancy offer, you will be removed from all other nursing home waiting lists. If you require a bed urgently, you may not have as much choice with the facility you move into. You may have to accept the first offer that is made to you, no matter if it is your first facility choice or not. 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.

Waiting lists

Nursing homes don’t always have bed vacancies available, it is likely that you will have to wait for a period of time for a bed to be made available.


68

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

It is ideal to plan ahead and take the time to choose the facilities that you want to live in. This means no matter who offers you a bed first, you will be satisfied with the placement.

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, to let you know they have a spot available for you. 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. From the date of acceptance you may be charged for your care and be eligible to receive financial assistance from the Government. Once your place in the aged care home has been confirmed, you will be provided with two or three important documents which will address all the information and details you need to know. This information should also include the Resident Agreement, the Accommodation Agreement, or an Extra Services Agreement if applicable. 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 to move into a home can be a really big decision, so you want to make sure you choose a nursing home that not only suits your needs, but also feels like home. Making a list of your personal preferences and requirements can make it easier to shortlist aged care facilities. This list could include the care you require and lifestyle options.

One of the best ways to gauge the environment and atmosphere of a nursing home is by visiting it. Contact the home you are considering to organise a tour of the facility. By visiting the facility, you will be able to assess whether the nursing home meets your needs and if it is a place you would be happy to live. Any questions you have can be answered by your tour guide. Additionally, you can have a talk with the site manager to understand how the aged care facility runs and have all your questions answered.

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?

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?

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. Below you’ll find an overview of some of the main things to consider when moving in.

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 by the home prior to use.

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.


74

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

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.

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.

Moving into a home

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. 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 any health professionals you see 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

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. 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 little bit for you to settle into your new life. Providing a caring and supportive environment, staff in a nursing home are there to make life easier for you, many residents have reported they actually enjoy an enhanced quality of life and improved social life, since they moved. You will benefit from receiving help with some tasks you’ve found difficult to do and you will have peace of mind that should anything happen, you will receive immediate attention and the situation will be managed well.

It’s your home

There may be some ‘common’ areas that are shared with other residents, such as the dining room and lounge room, but 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.

Social aspects and routines

The 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.

Daily living

Find out prior to moving what extra personal belongings you can bring so you can still enjoy the things which have meaning to you.

As well as adjusting to new people, there may be some changes to your daily routines, such as slightly different meal and shower times. The important thing to remember is that by moving into a nursing home you’ll receive the help and support you need to improve your quality of life.

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. Whether it’s reading or watching TV in your room, chatting with other residents or going to the cinema with friends, the choice of how you spend your time is yours.

Partners

Some homes offer rooms for couples in the form of adjoining rooms, double rooms, or even a single unit for couples.

Daily living

This means couples can continue living together even if they have different care and support needs.

Pets

While most homes do not allow residents to have their personal pets, a lot 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 depending on your health, you will be able to come and go as you please – visit friends, enjoy family celebrations, go shopping and even go on holiday. 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.

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 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?

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.

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

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. Services delivered and cost may vary between providers and they should be outlined in your Resident Agreement.

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 197 for a list of aged care homes that offer extra services.

Extra services

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.

VICTORIA 2021/22

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

Residential respite

To receive respite care in an aged care home, you require an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS), except in emergencies. See page 51 for more information about ACAS. 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 ACAS’. When you have received approval by the ACAS, 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

The cost for respite in a Government funded aged care home is the same Basic Daily Fee as for a permanent resident of the home. This amount is currently $52.71 per day (1 July 2021 rates), which is the equivalent of 85 percent of the single maximum base rate of the Age Pension, 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. There is no income and assets test or additional accommodation charge to access respite in an aged care home. This only applies to permanent residents of an aged care home. 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 about respite options and how to access, contact the Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737. Go to page 33 to read about respite options in your own home or community.

Meeting the needs of all cultures

Cultural services

For many older Australians, leaving their home to move into residential care is a lifestyle change that can be 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. For example, people who migrated from southern and eastern Europe in the 1950s and ‘60s, or from Asian countries in the 1970s and ‘80s, and who are now in need of aged and community care services, will be much more comfortable and secure receiving care from people who understand their specific cultural 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. It is also common for people from non-English speaking backgrounds who have developed dementia, to forget the English language they have learnt and revert to their original mother tongue, even though they may have lived in Australia for many years.

A growing focus

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.

Care that speaks to

The highly complex nature of meeting and understanding the needs of ageing CALD Australians is being increasingly recognised by Government with emphasis and focus also being put on the risk factors specific to CALD Australians that can affect their ageing experience. 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 specific to CALD elders and their care.

Cluster facilities

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

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

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 and better access to culturally appropriate residential and community care services. The initiative also ensures older CALD people have access to information resulting in greater capacity to make informed decisions about residential and community based aged care options.

CO e r a C d Age s e c i v r e S We are proud to provide a vast range of services tailored to older Italians: • In-home support services to enable them to continue living independently in the community • Social Support Groups offering socialisation with their peers within a safe and supported environment • A friendly visitation service by trained Italian-speaking volunteers at home or in residential care facilities

Our professional, experienced and qualified Italian-speaking staff come from the very same background as your loved ones and possess a unique understanding of their cultural needs.

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 less satisfaction with their care. Access to 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 215 –223 for a list of aged care homes and home care package providers in Victoria who can meet the needs of people from a range of cultures.

Cultural services

Through training, workshops and information resources, the PICAC program aims to equip and support residential and community aged care service providers to deliver culturally appropriate care.

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.

VICTORIA 2021/22

The room

Is it a single or shared room?   Is the room you’re shown the actual room you’ll be moving into or is it for display only?

Does the room have an ensuite or are the bathrooms shared?   Are there provisions for married couples?   How is the room allocation determined?   Is there access to a private phone line, internet connection, or pay TV?

Aged care checklist

How is the heating/cooling controlled?   What personal effects and furnishings can you bring to the home?   Are there provisions for safe storage of personal items?   Are there easily accessible alarm buttons in the room and how many?

Are staff respecting resident’s privacy – do they knock before entering a resident’s room?

Day to day living

Are there areas for families and friends to meet and celebrate special events?

Can family and friends take part in activities?   Are meals cooked on site or delivered?   Are menus flexible and able to meet special requirements?   What types of individual and group activities are offered and how often?

Are there activities that include cultural and spiritual preferences?   Are there any activities organised together with the local community?

What special events are celebrated?   Does the facility have pets on site or offer a pet visitation program?

Health and personal care

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 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 and inspect a few different options and make sure you 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.


98

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

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.

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. You will find more information on each group below.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI)

All care homes should care for all people regardless of their background although some homes are specifically for ATSI clients. See pages 215 –223 for an overview of aged care homes and 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. A large number of these care leavers are now reaching an age where they need to consider moving into aged 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 (CALD) people Some aged care services are designed specifically for people who are culturally and linguistically diverse. They might have staff that speak a foreign language, specific cultural activities, or meet spiritual needs.

To support the needs of older people from CALD backgrounds, the Government has introduced the ‘National Ageing and Aged Care Strategy for People from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Backgrounds’. This strategy helps aged care providers to deliver quality care and aims to make culturally appropriate aged care more accessible. See pages 215 –223 for a list of culturally appropriate homes and services.

Disability

In Australia one in five people live with some form of disability and this number increases with age. There are many different types of disability including physical, intellectual, sensory, learning, psychiatric, or a combination of any of these. Some of these may be pre-existing disabilities, they can be disabilities due to health conditions like a stroke, or be part of the ageing process, such as dementia. 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.

Special needs groups

The care needs of older Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people can be quite specific and there is a cultural element that needs to be considered in the delivery of care.


102

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

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.

Financial hardship assistance applications will be considered on your overall financial circumstance including your total income and assets, your eligibility for a pension, and whether you have income or assets which you can use to pay your care fees.

Homeless

At Lifeview we believe in reducing the barriers to care – it’s about quality of life. Lifeview homes are Rainbow Tick accredited and inclusive for all – everyone is free to age with grace, dignity, choice and without fear of discrimination. Our compassionate, educated staff offer specialist care for all residents including those from the LGBTI community. With award winning lifestyle and hospitality programs we pride ourselves on living life to the fullest.

Victorian locations:

Chelsea, Cranbourne, Emerald and Wheelers Hill. To find out more or to book a tour of one of our homes call us on 1800 LIFEVIEW or visit www.lifeview.com.au

If you are currently homeless, or if you’re at risk of becoming homeless, there may be Government funded services available to you that can help solve your housing problems, or assist with financial or legal issues.

The Homeless Supplement aims to better support the viability of residential aged care homes providing care to people who have a history of, or are at risk of, homelessness.

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. It is designed not only to raise awareness of the issues, but also improve the ageing and aged care experience of LGBTIQ people, and recognising and valuing the diversity of this group.

The Rainbow Tick Accreditation program recognises the commitment of aged and community care organisations that have implemented LGBTIQ inclusive service delivery. Rainbow Tick Accreditation provides assurance to LGBTIQ consumers and staff that an organisation will be responsive to their needs.

On pages 215 –223 you’ll find a list of homes and services providing LGBTIQ appropriate services.

Rural & Regional clients

If you live in a rural or regional area it may be harder to access the aged care services that you need.

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. The Veterans’ Home Care program can help with in home support and the Veterans’ Supplement aims to improve access to residential aged care for veterans with mental health conditions.

For more information, contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs on 1800 838 372 or visit www.dva.gov.au .

Supported Residential Services

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 Service (ACAS) assessment to access care in an SRS. They must, however, be registered with the Victorian Government and are monitored to ensure they provide certain standards of care and accommodation. SRS 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 care they provide usually includes assistance with:

showering   personal hygiene   toileting

dressing   meals and medication   physical and emotional support

Some SRS also provide nursing or allied health services. The fees, standards and services provided by SRS 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. There must be at least one staff member for every 30 residents, extra staff to provide adequate levels of care for residents, and sufficient staff (at least one) on site overnight to respond to residents’ care needs and to ensure the safety of residents. SRS are able to set their own fees and charges. The range of fees can be anywhere from about 85 percent of the pension up to $1,000 per week or more.

What services are available?

While SRS 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 SRS 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 SRS, 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 SRS manager or personal care coordinator will know how to access these services or you can ask your local council or community health service.

Supported Residential Services

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


104

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

Respite

Most SRS provide respite care and while they charge for respite they do not require a formal assessment by the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS).

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) provides its gold and white card holders who have been assessed through its Veterans’ Home Care program with 28 days of respite per annum in an SRS. The DVA also covers the full cost for convalescent care at an SRS.

Up to three weeks convalescent care per annum is available after a hospital stay. Other State based community services may provide full or partial funding for respite at an SRS.

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

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.

Costs

All fees and charges you have to pay, as well as how any changes to fees and charges will be conveyed to you, must be included in your residential and services agreement. Costs can vary greatly, depending on the standard of accommodation, whether you have a single or shared room, and the services you need. The only fees and charges an SRS can ask you to pay are:

Fees for accommodation and personal support services – these can be up to $1,000 or more per week.

Security deposits – these cover any damage by you or your

visitors, or unpaid fees. The most that can be charged is one month’s fees.

Fees in advance – these are payments made before due date but the most the proprietor can accept is the equivalent of one month’s fees.

Reservation fees – this might be charged if you wish a

proprietor to keep a place for your in the SRS until you move in, but it can’t be more than two weeks’ fees.

An establishment fee – covers the cost of assessing your

needs and setting up your support plan and can’t be more than two weeks’ fees.

Items or services purchased at the SRS – some SRS charge a single fee to cover all your needs and others will charge a basic fee and you pay for optional extras like hairdressing. See pages 198-199 for a list of SRS in Victoria.

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. 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 or privately funded home care services, with support provided in the comfort of your own self-contained home in the village.

No asset-testing or ACAS assessments

Acquiring one of these homes, which is not Government funded, is surprisingly easy. As with a retirement village, there is no need for asset testing or income testing. There is also no need for an assessment by the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) that nursing homes require. Furthermore, since there are generally no waiting lists, you are able to move in straight away. If you already receive home support benefits before moving to a supported living community you can stay with your current provider. Care benefits can also be arranged if you’re in need of a care package.

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. Friends and family are always welcome to pop in for visits, meals, family celebrations and to make use of the many facilities. If you don’t feel like cooking at home, the dining room is available as an alternative and can be a great way to catch up with friends and neighbours.

Choosing a supported living community

There are various factors which may determine your transition to a particular supported living community.

Supported living

For instance, do you prefer a smaller environment, or would you rather be in a larger place with more activities? Another factor which may help you come to a decision is whether the facility has amenities that are important to you, such as a gym, recreation centre, library, or a chapel. Food and health is also a major determining factor in the supported living community you choose to reside at. Before coming to a decision, ask the following questions:  Is the food appealing? What kinds of food are served?   Do you have the option of eating in your room?  Is it nutritious and appetising?  Are there different food options available?  How are health problems handled?   How does the community handle both emergency and non‑emergency problems?   If you develop a medical condition, will you be able to remain at the community?   Would you be required to move elsewhere for medical care? 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’.

Retirement living and your choices 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.

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 who want to maintain their independence.

Independent living

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 21 to read more about the Home Care Packages or page 55 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.

Retirement living

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.


108

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

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.

Retirement living

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

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.

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.

Finding the right village When deciding on a retirement village, be clear about what you want, what you are prepared to compromise on and what you definitely don’t want. To help you with the decision making process, here are some points to consider:   Finances – Know your budget, what you can afford and what other ongoing costs are required. Always seek expert legal and financial advice. Ask questions and ensure you fully understand all the financial and legal implications of living in a retirement village before you sign anything or hand any money over.   Lifestyle: Think carefully about how you spend your time now and how you want to spend your time in the future. For instance, if you are looking for a complete lifestyle change, you might consider a resort retirement village. Many villages now offer special interest facilities such as golf and tennis courts, and more are now accepting pets. You may also want to think about whether you want a garden or access to one.   Support: One of the attractions of a retirement village is the peace of mind of 24-hour help and assistance. Many villages now offer additional home support services. This is ideal if you need additional help with personal care, meals, laundry and domestic assistance.

Location: When looking at locations, you may want to consider whether you want to be closer to family or stay in or near the community you’re already in. You may have always dreamed of living by the sea or in the country, while proximity to shops may also be important to you.   Amenities: Villages now offer a massive range of amenities including libraries, restaurants, community rooms and barbeque areas. Ultimately you will be paying for these amenities through your weekly or monthly payments, so you may want to think about whether an all-weather indoor heated swimming pool or the caravan and boat parking is important to your needs.   Other accommodation: Your or your partner’s needs may change in the future, so you may also want to consider what other types of accommodation are available. Many developments are now offering serviced apartments and residential aged care at the same location, which means that even though your needs might change, you can still live in the same community.

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.


VICTORIA 2021/22

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.

Living in a retirement village can offer a supportive environment and encourage independence, as well as the ability to enjoy social and leisure activities, if you choose. Many retirement village residents say they have become more active, confident and social since moving to a retirement village, and some go as far as to say they wish they’d done it sooner. While each village has its own culture, they are based on ‘senior friendly’ criteria and a community focused environment. You’ll be surrounded generally by like-minded friendly and welcoming neighbours.

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.

Depending on the village, some of these activities may include aerobics, 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.

Before signing on the ‘dotted line’ . . .

The idea of downsizing and living in a retirement living community may be appealing, but there are certain factors which should be considered prior to making the transition from your home to ‘the village’. Retirement village contracts are complex legal documents that can be hard to comprehend for someone without professional training. So, it’s important to understand your rights and responsibilities and obligations under the contract, before you sign. There are different types of contracts that residents and operators enter into depending on the arrangements in place in the village. You are more likely to make the right choices if you know what you want. Don’t rush into making a commitment and seek expert advice and answers to all of your questions. Remember: Before signing a retirement living contract, take all of the documents and any questions you may have about the village to a legal practitioner or financial advisor who understands the legal and financial implications of retirement village contracts. Go to pages 200 –202 for a list of retirement accommodation options.

Placement consultants

A placement consultant makes your job 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 into consideration to make sure the advice is right for your circumstances:

insight, clarity and support as you journey into aged care

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?

What are the family dynamics around the placement decision and the impact on everyone involved?

Whether you’re in need of care for a loved one or planning your own care, Golden Age Placements will guide you along a path that suits your life scenario. Smooth the journey into aged care – start the conversation today. Martina Costanzo Aged Care Placement Specialist

Having extensive knowledge of facilities in their area, as well as the placement process, an aged care placement consultant can often find a home faster, and one that is specially suited to your requirements. Through their established relationships with aged care homes, they are familiar with the culture of each home and, most importantly, they have advanced knowledge when vacancies become available. By knowing the culture of each facility and getting to know you, placement consultants can determine which homes would best suit your needs and preferences, and make prior applications to these homes. Without the assistance of an aged care placement consultant, you or your carer would need to constantly phone the facilities of your choice to demonstrate your eagerness and commitment to obtaining a bed in that home.

Choosing a placement consultant

Within Victoria, 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. An independent professional is able to provide guidance based entirely on your individual circumstances, not biased by commission or kickbacks from any particular facility or provider. A quality, independent placement consultant will:   Take their time to get to know you, your family, your circumstances, requirements and preferences.   Understand the strengths and weakness of every aged care facility they are recommending.   Know the required, and accredited, quality of the aged care facilities, beyond the brochures and websites.   Provide you with streamlined access to an extended services network of professionals you may need, including financial advisors, lawyers, social workers and other specialists.


AgedCareGuide.com.au

Be at ease with talking to Centrelink, doctors and health professionals, ACAS teams, financial advisors, real estate agents and all the people along the way. Choose an advocate who will ease your concerns, supporting your family with all aspects of this transition, allowing you to focus on your loved one. Placement consultants are most happy for you to call them for a chat and understand you may talk to a number of them before making your choice. You can be open in your discussions because, similar to health professionals, they have a policy of confidentiality. Their professional fees may differ and it is reasonable to advise them if you are working to a budget. 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 right care.

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 and can significantly speed up the time it usually takes to find a placement at a suitable home, thereby easing the transition into residential care.

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. For example, it is not uncommon for various family members to each have their own opinion on which aged care home is more suitable. Also, there is often one family member who is responsible for the majority of the negotiations and practical support, but 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.

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. There can be the fear of the unknown and not knowing what to expect. 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 page 229 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. 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. 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.

VICTORIA 2021/22

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 may include the purchase or hire of equipment or installation of assistive aids, such as bathroom rails, and negotiating with support agencies for delivery of services.

Placement consultants

The case manager also monitors 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, tertiaryqualified 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. Examples of when private case management may be an option are if you are returning home from hospital, recovering from an illness, or simply to help you continue to live safely and independently at home. 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?

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. 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, several or many ongoing visits, and you only pay for what you use.

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.

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. A financial advisor can help you focus on the information and issues that are important to you and your specific financial situation.

Trusted financial advice & advocacy.

we plan with you, simplifying the process & holding your hand from beginning to end.

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:

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 or have experience with aged care financial issues?

Will they provide you with an outline of all your options?   Will they provide their advice in ‘plain English’ and 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.

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.

Aged care cost – What you ought to know

One-quarter of your retirement is expected to be ‘care years’ where help may be needed with daily living activities. Nearly half of Australians take up an aged care bed within one month of being assessed as needing full time residential aged care. Most people want to remain independent throughout retirement and to stay in control of where and how they live. Your ability to do so may depend on your health and physical well-being. As we age, some things become harder to do on our own. 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 $111,000 per year, but a large portion is paid by the Government. The contribution you would pay is between $19,071 and $47,159 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.

Financial advice

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 4.04% (for entry from 1 July 2021).

For example, a RAD of $400,000 is converted to a DAP of $44.27 per day. 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.

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 lowmeans resident – this would require your share of assessable assets to be less than $173,075.20. 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. This can help you fund the accommodation payment to access the care you need.

Example

Bert is moving into residential care. He is a widower on the full age pension with a home worth $420,000 and $20,000 in the bank. The service he and his family have chosen is asking for a RAD of $530,000 (or $58.66 per day). Bert is worried that he cannot afford a place in this service without asking his children for help. He sought advice on his options and decided to take the advice to:

Sell his home   Use the net sale proceeds to pay a $400,000 RAD, leaving a DAP of $14.38 per day on the remaining $130,000

Instruct the service provider to deduct the DAP each month from his RAD

This leaves his $24,770 age pension to cover his daily care fees of $19,272 per year (this includes the basic daily fee and the meanstested care fee) plus some personal expenses. His DAP is deducted from his RAD leaving Bert financially selfsufficient and keeping around a $20,000 cash reserve to meet other expenses.

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

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, they do not put all the pieces of your puzzle together. All decisions do not need to be made before you can get the care needed – there is no rush.

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 – it can be hard to unscramble an egg!

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.

Reverse mortgages If you are finding it difficult to pay an accommodation payment to enter an aged care facility and are afraid you may have to sell your home in order to make the payment, you may want to consider a reverse mortgage. Reverse mortgages, or equity release loans, are generally available to residential property owners over 60 years of age, and they allow a person to release funds using the equity in their house. These funds can then be used as an income stream, or to borrow against, for personal lifestyle needs such as travel, home improvements, medical bills or to pay for aged care services or accommodation payments. There are a number of advantages in using a reverse mortgage to fund an accommodation payment. Some of these include:

Retaining the family home. This is particularly important if the spouse of the person entering care wishes to continue living in the home.

Ability to pay the accommodation payment quickly. This saves

substantial interest charges to the aged care facility as generally the interest charged on the loan will be lower than that charged by the aged care facility.

It is also possible to pay an accommodation payment in part (or full)

via a periodic payment to the aged care facility. Although the interest charged may be higher, there are considerable cash flow benefits.

Financial advice

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.

Financial advice

How do reverse mortgages work?

While a traditional mortgage requires a person to make payments on the home loan, payments on a reverse mortgage loan are only due when a person decides to sell, leave the home or in the event of their death. When their home is eventually sold, they can pay back the amount of the loan as well as the interest owing. No income is needed to qualify for reverse mortgage loans and no regular repayments are required.

The interest is added on to the loan account and the debt is repaid when the property is sold later or when the last surviving borrower dies.

Am I eligible?

In order to secure a reverse mortgage home loan, you must first meet specific requirements. Most lenders will not offer a reverse mortgage until you are 65 years or older. Generally, however, you must be at least 60 years of age and using the home as your primary residence, and must not be renting out the home.

Choosing the right loan

It is important to choose the right reverse mortgage home loan which is most appropriate for you. Seeking impartial advice from Centrelink and a financial planner can help you to consider all of your options and ensure that the accommodation payment is structured to avoid any unnecessary reduction in pension. It is also recommended that you consult family members before determining whether a reverse mortgage loan is right for you.

Sell your home ‘stress free’ Having made the decision to leave the family home to enter an aged care home or retirement village, how and where do you begin with selling what may be your biggest asset? When it comes to selling your home, some of the stress can be removed by engaging the services of a seller advocate to deal with the real estate agent. By helping you through every step of the selling process, the seller advocate can help you get the best price for your home. The seller advocate assesses your property’s worth, selects an appropriate target market and advises on the sale method. The advocate then interviews and selects an agent based on your requirements. This ensures your budget is not exceeded and that your expectations are met. The seller advocate can also negotiate the agent’s fee and sale price. This service reduces the contact between the seller and the real estate agent and ensures that the property’s set price range is attained with no nasty, unexpected surprises at any stage. The seller advocate’s fee is a percentage taken from the real estate agent’s fee, so there is no direct cost to the seller.

A seller advocate can also organise and manage the presentation of your home. Everything from a quick tidy up to a renovation or makeover can be handled by them. Landscaping, gardening, building, and decorating, re-fitting, rubbish removal – you name it. They know how to increase the appeal and value of your home. And, if there are items you wish to sell, the seller advocate can arrange to have them valued and auctioned.

Tips to selling ‘stress free’

Here is some advice to selling ‘stress free’; common ‘selling mistakes’; and the benefits of ‘downsizing’ the home to maximise your quality of life.

Do your research – what is the house really worth?   Think about the presentation of the home – are you going to sell it furnished or empty?

Selling and moving

What methods of sale and marketing will you employ? Will the home be auctioned or will you accept expressions of interest?

Will the sale of your home impact on pensions?   Seek professional advice from a seller advocate, as well as a financial and legal advisor.

De-stressing your move

People who are downsizing, moving in to a smaller unit or having to move into a nursing home often have 50 years or more of accumulated goods and belongings. The situation can be even more difficult for people who are on their own or where family are interstate and not available to help. Many people who are moving need packers, removalists, unpackers, sorters/de-clutterers, assistants, confidants, coordinators, cleaners and gardeners all rolled up into one. The stress of both finding professional assistance and then coordinating can be overwhelming. If you need help, the best avenue is to speak to a case manager, social worker, placement consultant or contact a business that specialises in practical assistance with all aspects of relocating. Services often include:

De-cluttering and sorting through household contents and personal possessions

Sorting the saleable items, identifying valuables, determining items to be discarded, compiling all documents

Compiling an inventory of the contents and arranging valuations   Assisting people to relocate into alternative accommodation   Clearing the home or unit prior to sale or tenancy termination   Gathering bequeathed items, photographs and memorabilia   Delivering valuables, financial, legal and personal papers to the appropriate person


VICTORIA 2021/22

AgedCareGuide.com.au

133

Delivering unsaleable goods to various charities   Removing all rubbish items from the entire property   Coordinating real estate agent, auction house, cleaner, gardener, repairs and all other services

Unpacking your belongings in your new home and placing your furniture in position

Install electronic devices like a TV or computer and hang pictures. There are so many things to prepare and organise when you move into aged care. A professional relocation business may help alleviate all the emotional and physical work involved in relocating yourself, a loved one or friend into an aged care facility.

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. 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 and administrators

In Victoria, the executor of the Will generally need to apply for a Grant of Probate through the Supreme Court for permission to take control of the estate. If there is no Will, a next of kin or relative can make an application for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court to receive control of the estate. It’s important to update your Will regularly, for instance, if you get married your Will is automatically revoked in Victoria. Compared to other States and Territories, in Victoria getting divorced does automatically revoke your Will. In Victoria, if you die without a valid Will, your estate will be treated as an ‘Intestate’ and your assets will be distributed under the Victorian intestacy law to your surviving relatives.

The only way to ensure that your loved ones are protected is to obtain proper legal advice regarding your estate planning. To find out more information, visit the State Trustees VIC website, statetrustees.com.au, or contact the Office of the Public Advocate on publicadvocate.vic.gov.au.

Enduring Power of Attorney

Enduring Power of Attorney – a ‘living Will’ 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? 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’. In Victoria, an Enduring Power of Attorney can manage your financial, lifestyle and medical decisions. Medical decisions can only be made for you if they are also your medical treatment decision maker. An Advance Care Directive should also be created to outline your medical wishes, this should be provided to your medical treatment decision maker. 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.

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. 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. 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 are or have experienced situations similar to yours, and a place to share experiences and advice. Carer support groups are completely confidential and can also help you to:

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

Support lines

There are also a number of support lines and websites to assist carers just like you in looking after older people. Some helpful support services include:

Carer Gateway – 1800 422 737 – phone and online resource to help

you find local support services, gives advice on a range of topics such as health and wellbeing, financial and legal considerations, and can connect you with other carers

National Dementia Helpline – 1800 100 500 – provides information

and support about dementia, connect you to support services in your area as well as provide emotional support to help manage the impact of dementia

Carers Australia – 1800 242 636 – runs support programs including short term counselling for carers with qualified counsellors

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.

Advocacy

Advocacy

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, 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. The Australian Government funds OPAN to deliver the National Aged Care Advocacy Program across the country. 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. However, major changes in memory are not normal at any age and should be taken seriously.

Dementia support

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

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

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

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.

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 100 500 or dementia.org.au or read on for information about how the Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS) can help.

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

Changed behaviours

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. The 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.

Dementia support

Changed behaviours may include:

Anxiety   Depressed mood   Hallucinations   Restlessness   Aggression   Sleep disturbance   Inappropriate toileting

Specialised support

Eating difficulties   Repeated calling out   Repetitive questioning   Wandering   Hoarding

Resistive to care

Unwanted sexualised behaviour

The Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (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. DBMAS has a multi-disciplinary team of experienced health care professionals such as registered nurses, social workers, clinical psychologists, geriatricians, speech pathologists, dietitians, and nurse practitioners. The team offers specialised support, assessment, intervention, and advice to assist carers and care workers of people with dementia where behaviours may impact on their care. The Severe Behaviour Response Teams (SBRT) is a national mobile workforce of staff including nurse practitioners, nurses, allied health, and specialist staff. They can provide timely expertise and advice to Government funded approved residential aged care providers who need assistance with addressing the needs of people with severe and very severe behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia. DBMAS has procedures in place to decide when the SBRT is the best service option or when DBMAS can provide the right support. For more information, contact DBMAS on 1800 699 799 or visit dementia.com.au .

End of life care

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.

Services to help at home

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

eating meals, or help for those with special diets; and

helping to travel to shopping centres or appointments.

Palliative care in a nursing home

The Guidelines for a Palliative Approach in Residential Aged Care, developed by the Government to provide support and guidance, outline three forms of palliative care in residential aged care:

A palliative approach – To improve the quality of life for residents with a life limiting illness.

Specialised palliative service provision – This form of palliative care 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 and communicate their wishes regarding care.

These 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 carers, supporting a patient’s needs. 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.

Arranging your funeral

End of life planning should include what you want to happen at your funeral, as funeral wishes can be quite personal. Many people don’t realise your funeral can be as unique as you are. It can be difficult to talk about with your friends and family, however, it is an important conversation to have to make sure your wishes are upheld after you die. Your family should understand and know what you want for your funeral and if there are any specific things you would like to include. This means your loved ones can remember you as you were through the things you loved over your lifetime. It may even help family and friends mourn, knowing that you had a say in your own farewell.

Funeral planning

Some things to consider for your own funeral include:

Do you want a burial or do you want to be cremated?   Where will you be buried or would you like your ashes kept?   Where do you want the service to take place?   Will the service be religious?   Will there be a wake?   Any personal things you want at your funeral service such as a specific music or flowers?

What funeral director do you want to go with?   Is cost an issue for your funeral?

Make time to talk to your loved ones about it and also make sure it is written somewhere and someone knows about it.

Funeral advocacy

If you’re finding it confusing or overwhelming to think about your funeral wishes, let alone plan for it, a funeral advocate may be able to help. A funeral advocate can give you guidance and emotional support when planning a funeral. They will take a personal approach and get to understand you and what is important to you on your final journey. They can assist with:

Explaining all your options   Choosing a funeral director

Documenting your final wishes   Saving money on funeral costs

Making logical decisions, not emotional decisions   Knowledge of alternative funeral options, like beach services or funerals at home

A funeral advocate can take emotional decision-making out of the equation, so you can make the right decisions for your own funeral or for someone you love. You don’t have to be ill or dying to discuss funeral planning either. You may just want to be prepared for when the time does come. Funeral advocates are not funeral directors, so they don’t actually handle the funeral itself. It is an independent advisory service and they don’t have alliances with funeral directors. This means they can ensure you get the right advice for you and that you are in control of your final wishes.

A Rainbow Tick accredited organistation, Lifeview is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex friendly for residents, staff and volunteers. We are committed to ensuring older Australians are able to age with grace, dignity, choice and without fear of prejudice.

Lifeview’s homes feature Home2Home our own small house, relationship-based model of care, where multi-skilled staff (housemates), work with the same group of residents all the time. Home2Home enables staff to spend more meaningful time within their household, creating better continuity of care and building on already established relationships. Home2Home also allows residents to remain as independent as they desire, to have a say in how the home is run, what meals they would like to see on the menu, and what activities they wish to participate in.

Active Vibrant Living Lifeview focuses on promoting resident wellbeing and quality of life through best practice lifestyle programming, intergenerational engagement and a culture of inclusion, fun and positivity.

We believe in making laughter and fun a priority, you are never too old to have fun. Our energetic and creative social support team organise a monthly calendar of events, with meaningful activities scheduled seven days a week, designed to capture the interests of all residents. The program also features special events and theme days, tailored exclusively to each home. Our social activities program is diverse and inclusive. We encourage you to book a private tour with us at a time that suits you, Monday to Saturday, to see the Lifeview difference for yourself.

Lifeview’s residences are designed to help people live active lives with plenty of social activities and community involvement. This, coupled with our exceptional care and warm, welcoming environment, is what Lifeview is all about. All rooms in Lifeview’s homes are single with en suite, giving residents their own secure private space. Pets are also welcome at Lifeview.

At Vermont Aged Care, over 35 years of experience has taught us the importance of time spent with family and friends, and how vital that is for our wellbeing. That’s why most of what we do is designed around bringing people together. Whether it’s a delicious, chef-prepared meal with the family, a trip to the shops with friends, or a touch of pampering at our in-house salon, there’s a range of activities and social events to suit everyone.

Home Care Packages directory – Approved Providers Approved Home Care Package providers deliver 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 approved Home Care Package provider to provide the services you need. Some providers may only provide services in one region while others can service multiple areas.

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 reference tables are organised in five regions: Melbourne city, Eastern metro, Northern metro, Southern metro and Western metro.

Melbourne city Eastern metro Northern metro Southern metro Western metro

On the following pages you’ll find alphabetical lists of approved providers, in Greater Metropolitan Melbourne.

The list below is a quick reference guide to help you find in which group council districts are listed. For example Whitehorse LGA is grouped under Eastern metro. Page 150 is a colour coded map of Greater Metropolitan Melbourne to show you which council districts are grouped together.

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

How to read the HCP table The table on these pages lists Home Care Package approved providers in alphabetical order, detailing the Home Care Package levels they offer and if they offer any package supplements.

The hours of care are increased at each level of care, which means more hours of care and services are provided under Home Care Package Level 4 and the least amount of hours under Home Care Package Level 1.

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 .

Package supplements, like the Dementia SupplementZ and the Veterans’ Supplement R, are offered to eligible persons only. Some packages are specifically for people who are financially or socially disadvantaged e, people with housing needs or at risk of homelessness Y, or for people who live in rural, remote or isolated areas t. The cultural environment g indicates providers offering services from culturally diverse backgrounds.

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.

Based on your care needs, an ACAS 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.

Aged Care Guide

VICTORIA 2021/22

Home Care Packages directory – Approved Providers Approved Home Care Package providers deliver 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 approved Home Care Package 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 delivering aged care services in rural and regional Victoria. 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 reference tables are organised in five regions: North East region, North West region, South East region, South West region and West region. The list below is a quick reference guide to help you find in which group council districts are listed. For example Latrobe is listed under South East region. Page 151 is a colour coded map of the Victorian rural and regional areas to show you which council districts are grouped together.

How to read the HCP table The table on these pages lists Home Care Package approved providers in alphabetical order, detailing the Home Care Package levels they offer and if they offer any package supplements.

The hours of care are increased at each level of care, which means more hours of care and services are provided under Home Care Package Level 4 and the least amount of hours under Home Care Package Level 1.

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 .

Package supplements, like the Dementia SupplementZ and the Veterans’ Supplement R, are offered to eligible persons only. Some packages are specifically for people who are financially or socially disadvantaged e, people with housing needs or at risk of homelessness Y, or for people who live in rural, remote or isolated areas t. The cultural environment g indicates providers offering services from culturally diverse backgrounds.

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.

Based on your care needs, an ACAS 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.
