Overview
We understand that the need for an older person or a family member to enter into residential aged care is a difficult decision for most people. It may be the result of a significant health set back that requires a person to enter residential aged care.

This need quite often triggers uncomfortable feelings for all concerned, including anxiety, uncertainty, and even guilt from family members.

The stresses placed on the family group is magnified by the rather complex and involved eligibility criteria and process required to enter into aged care.

With this in mind we endeavour to keep the information as simple as possible. We will assist families to work through these processes at any time. We are always available to explain the process and work through it with you.

Key Points
Some facts that are important to consider are:

  1. All residential aged care places are subject to eligibility requirements which are assessed by the local Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS). (Refer to our Useful Links) page).
  2. Latrobe Valley Village is able to provide accommodation for those assessed as either low care (hostel level) or high care (nursing home).
  3. Residents coming in as low care may age in place and continue in their same room irrespective of increasing support needs over time.
  4. There are not always places available at exactly the time they might be initially sought.
  5. Some residents, following a means test done in conjunction with Department of Human Services, may need to contribute an accommodation payment. (More information on this can be gained through the Useful Links page).
  6. Latrobe Valley Village is committed to a holistic model of care which gives emphasis to lifestyle, role maintenance and sustained relationships.
  7. Generally, spending some time with the Care Manager will help greatly in understanding your choices.
  8. Planned periods of residential respite is frequently a safe, reassuring way to create a natural transition into residential care.
  9. We would be delighted to work with family members in maximising the outcomes for our residents.
  10. Feel welcome to arrange a tour of our facility.
