Getting Started

Getting Started

The move to residential aged care is not an easy decision and our aim is to make the transition as easy as possible.


Initial Assessment

To come and live with us for permanent or respite care you will need an assessment by the Aged Care Assessment Team.

A member of the ACAT will talk to you about your current situation and determine the level of care that you will need. 

Get to Know Us

Following the assessment, if you are considering Yackandandah Health as a residential care option for either yourself or a family member, please contact us to arrange an appointment.

We will be able to answer questions you may have and give you a tour of our site and explain the application process.  This is also a good opportunity to meet some of the staff and begin to get to know us.

Additional Information

To simplify things when a room does become available, it is helpful to provide the following information to us as early as possible:

"My wife and I came here together. My daughters suggested we move together before one of us left for good. Then she passed on. Having already moved here and met people was an enormous help when my wife passed on. The friendship of the staff is very important because I mainly stick to myself."
