  • Fixed Term Contract till June 2022

  • Based in Wodonga or Wangaratta

The Commonwealth Aged Care Assessment Program (ACAP) has the responsibility for approving frail aged people for Australian Government subsidised care.

The ACAP is an important and integral part of Australia’s aged care system. The objective of the ACAP is to assess the care needs of frail aged people and to facilitate access to available care services appropriate to their needs.

There are two levels of assessment:

1/ Regional Assessment Services (RAS) conduct Home Support Assessments to assess people for eligibility for entry level home help services through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

2/ Aged Care Assessment Services (ACAS) conduct comprehensive assessments to assess people for eligibility to access higher level services, including Commonwealth-funded residential aged care, residential respite care, Transition Care Programme (TCP), Short Term Restorative Care Program, Home Care Packages, as well as the CHSP.

Both the Regional Assessment Service (RAS) for Indigo Shire and City of Wodonga, and the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) are integrated in the ACRAS at GH. This RAS role requires client service provision in both Wodonga and Indigo regions.

Both assessment programs operate using the My Aged Care Assessor Portal.

The Commonwealth Aged Care Assessment Program which incorporates both ACAS and RAS programs is funded at GH to 30/6/2022 at which time the Commonwealth envisages a transition to a yet to be determined assessment model.
