Applying for Admission
All residents looking to be admitted to Bethel Aged Care need to have an Aged Care Assessment done. This is your ‘license’ to enter aged care. This can be organized through the social worker, your local doctor or calling My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. Please apply through Centrelink for an Assets and Income Assessment Form prior to entering into care. It can take a few weeks for the result to be returned. This determines if you qualify for a government subsidy and the fees and charges you will pay. If you choose not to submit a Centrelink Assets Assessment Form, you will be liable for the maximum set of fees. All relevant documents should be brought when making an appointment to tour the facility during business hours. If there are several key members (families / friends) involved in the decision making process for permanent placement, then please ensure they are all present for that tour. From the time the room has been offered to you and you have accepted (after all the fees and charges have been negotiated), you have 7 days to move in. Billing starts from when the room is reserved.
