I am a health professional looking to refer patients more effectively

Although you may be familiar with the process and assessments involved in referring patients for aged care, we can help you stay across the latest updates to the system and ensure you refer patients for the right care more effectively.

There is often a waiting period while My Aged Care assessments are completed. We can help fill the gap for your patients by providing services on a private fee-paying basis.

Why use this service?

Mercy Health is an experienced not-for-profit provider of home care services  and we will work in partnership with you to:

  • understand the most recent government referral, assessment and allocation considerations for Home Care Packages
  • stay up-to-date with the breadth of care options available to patients/clients while they are waiting for package assessments to be completed
  • arrange for timely or ongoing supports for patients and clients.
