Now that you’ve submitted your initial application form, you might wait 4-6 weeks before an assessor can meet with you. During the COVID-19 pandemic, most assessments are happening over the phone or via video call. MyAgedCare will be in touch with you, to arrange a time for that appointment.
There are things you can do to prepare while you’re waiting. Preparing properly for your in-person assessment is important. Here’s what you need to be doing now.
Think about who you want with you
Speak to your GP
Collect the documents you need
Write down your questions
You can make your assessment faster and more effective with a little bit of preparation. Find a support person, speak to your GP, gather your documents and write down your questions. By taking these steps, you will be well prepared for your MyAgedCare assessment. That means you’ll be one step closer to securing funding for in-home support.
