5 Step Admission
Process

BASScare is a Commonwealth Government approved Residential Aged Care Provider.

At BASScare we understand that moving to a supported residence is a difficult decision. To make the process easier, we’ve compiled a step-by –step guide, outlining where to start, who to speak to and what information is required.

STEP ONE
Assessing your eligibility

Entry is subject to eligibility based on care needs as determined by the Aged Care Assessment Service (A.C.A.S.). Referral to this service can be made by a local medical practitioner. If you are on our waiting list, please contact us every month to keep us informed of your intention to remain on the list. Forms will be destroyed in a confidential manner if no contact is made.

STEP TWO
Visiting Faversham House

Prospective residents and their families are most welcome to make an appointment to visit and inspect the facilities at Faversham House. The decision to move into residential care is a significant one so it is important to choose a home that meets each person’s individual needs and preferences. Tours are conducted Monday to Friday between 11:30am and 4:30 pm by appointment only. Book a tour today or to find out more information call or email our Admissions Officer on 03 8809 4901 or admissions@basscare.org.au

STEP THREE
Working out the cost involved

There are protections in place to ensure that care is affordable for all residents. The Commonwealth Government recognises that not all residents can contribute to the cost of the care they receive and provide subsidies to assist with these costs.

STEP FOUR
Applying for Faversham House

A current Aged Care Assessment approval is essential to secure a place in a residential aged care home. Once a prospective resident has completed a facility tour and requested to be added to our current waitlist, they will receive the necessary waitlist application pack to complete and lodge at Faversham House. The Faversham House staff will guide you through this process, which usually involves an appointment to lodge the required documents. If you have been waitlisted, you will receive a letter confirming your placement on our waitlist. We will than contact you when a place becomes available.

STEP FIVE
Moving into your new home

Following a formal offer and acceptance of a place at Faversham House, new residents are given a resident agreement, which is a formal contract between the resident and Faversham House. We ask that the resident agreement be signed upon entering Faversham House.
