Understanding Aged Care

An aged care home is a place for those elderly who are unable to live comfortably by themselves at home, or require ongoing help with everyday living and health care. Living in an aged care home, otherwise known as a residential aged care facility gives older persons access to help with:

  • Daily tasks (such as cleaning, cooking and laundry)
  • Personal care (such as bathing, dressing, grooming and bathroom assistance)
  • Clinical care administered by a Registered Nurse (such as wound care and medicinal needs)
  • Other care services, dependant on your individual care needs.

Moving into aged care can be confusing and emotional, and we want this transition to be as informed and smooth as possible. For more information on aged care and the types of services available in aged care homes, we recommend you visit myagedcare.gov.au

Permanent Residential Care
or Residential Respite Care

Depending on your care needs, you may require residential aged care on a permanent basis, or for just a short period of time as the need arises, such as your home carers being unavailable or for restorative care, to get you back on your own feet. St Charbel’s Care Centre welcomes both permanent residents as well as those who need our care services for a short period of time.

Respite care is limited to 63 days of each financial year, however the possibility of extending this time in lots of 21 days can be arranged. Fees and charges for respite residents differ to those for permanent residents. To learn more about the fees and charges involved with aged care, click here.
