Steps to enter an aged care home

Page last updated: 29 November 2019

The Steps to enter an aged care home booklet replaces ‘Five steps to entry into an aged care home’.

Designed for senior Australians, their families and carers, it guides them through the pathway to access care in an aged care home.

It may also be a useful resource for:

  • approved providers
  • new front line staff
  • advocates.

Note: for someone who doesn’t yet know what type of care they may be eligible for, the 'Find the help you need with myagedcare' brochure is more suitable 

The booklet has also been translated into eighteen languages other than English. These are available to download below.

Hard copies of the English version of this booklet are available at no cost from National Mailing and Marketing (quote IW0025).
