    Frequently asked questions

    Is there a difference between an aged care home, residential care, and nursing home?

    Aged care facilities and nursing homes refer to the same thing, specifically residential accommodation supported by health care for older people who are unable to live independently.

    Why go into residential aged care?

    There are several reasons why someone might choose residential aged care:

    • Higher level of care: Residential aged care provides 24/7 access to professional nursing and support staff, ensuring that residents’ medical and personal needs are attended to round-the-clock. At Aurrum Aged Care Reservoir, we understand the importance of a comfortable and fulfilling lifestyle for our residents. Our compassionate staff and supportive community ensure that each resident receives personalised care and attention.
    • Safety and security: Aged care facilities like Aurrum Aged Care Reservoir are designed with the safety and security of residents in mind. They are equipped with features like handrails, emergency call systems, and accessible amenities.
    • Social interaction: Residential aged care communities offer opportunities for residents to engage in various social aged care activities and form meaningful connections with others. At our Reservoir aged care facility, our dedicated lifestyle team organises a dynamic calendar of activities that cater to various interests, such as arts and crafts, gardening, fitness classes, movie nights, and cultural celebrations.
    • Access to amenities: Aged care facilities often provide amenities such as communal areas, gardens, and recreational spaces, enhancing the quality of life for residents.

    Relief for caregivers: Moving into aged care can alleviate some stress on family members or caregivers who may not have the resources or capacity to provide the necessary level of care.

    What should I know about before moving to aged care?

    At Aurrum Aged Care Reservoir, we aim to ease the transition into aged care by providing guidance and support throughout the process. Our team is here to assist you every step of the way.

    Before moving into our Reservoir aged care facility, there are several important aspects to consider:

    • Financial planning: Understand the costs associated with aged care and explore any government subsidies or financial assistance available to you. Read more about moving into aged care on the pension.
    • Downsizing and organising belongings: Prepare for the move by downsizing and organising your belongings, keeping in mind the space available in your new accommodation.
    • Aged care routines/schedules: Familiarise yourself with the daily routines and schedules in the aged care facility to ensure a smooth transition.

    Emotional adjustment: Moving to aged care can be emotionally challenging. Seek support from family and friends, and don’t hesitate to talk to staff and other residents for companionship and reassurance.

    Should I choose an aged care home or home care?

    The answer to this question will depend on your personal circumstances and preferences. Residential aged care homes are beneficial for people needing around the clock care and access to a secure environment that provides a wide range of services, including personal care, meal preparation, organised social activities, transportation and more.

    Read more about choosing an aged care provider.

    Can I access government subsidies for aged care?

    Depending on your circumstances, the Australian Government may be able to provide financial assistance for aged care services, including residential care and home care.

    Find out more about aged care on the pension.

    What happens once I agree to an aged care home?

    After you have accepted a place in an aged care home, there will be a number of administrative steps that need to be completed before you move in. This can include sorting out accommodation costs, signing your resident agreement and deciding on whether you wish to receive extra services.

    How do you manage medication and other medical needs?

    Aurrum Aged Care offers 24-hour, seven days a week nursing care to ensure that our residents’ medical needs are met.

    Can you help with setting appointments with health professionals?

    Of course. We take a person-centred approach to care planning and will assist our residents and their families with setting appointments with health professionals if necessary. Our residents also have access to a wide variety of allied health support services.

    How can I deal with moving into aged care?

    Moving into aged care is a significant life transition, and it’s normal to feel overwhelmed or uncertain about the process. 

    To make the move more manageable, it’s important to plan ahead of time. This means starting the process early, so you have time to organise your belongings, sort out finances, and make necessary arrangements. It can also be helpful to involve family members or close friends in the planning process to provide emotional support and assist with tasks like packing and organising.

    Of course, it’s also recommended that you visit the aged care facility beforehand to get a feel for the environment and ask any questions you may have. This can help to alleviate some of the anxiety and uncertainty associated with the move.

    We warmly invite you to visit Aurrum Aged Care Reservoir and see our facilities for yourself. Our friendly staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with a tour of the premises. Contact us today to schedule a visit at our Reservoir aged care facility and take the first step towards a worry-free transition into aged care.

    • Staying in touch via phone/messages or even letters: At our Reservoir aged care facility, we understand the importance of staying connected with loved ones. Residents have access to phone and messaging facilities to communicate with their family and friends. We also encourage the exchange of letters and cards to maintain meaningful connections.
