If you require a nursing home bed urgently, you may have less opportunity to choose a nursing home you want to move into
There is usually a quick turn around between being offered a bed and moving into a nursing home
Once you have moved into a nursing home, any other home waiting lists you are on will be dropped
Aged care homes cannot predict or know when a vacancy will occur, so it is important to keep in regular contact with the aged care homes to ensure they are aware you are still interested in admission to their home.
Some homes may have waiting lists and the length of these varies between homes. If your situation is urgent, please inform the staff at the home.
If you have registered as a member of AgedCareGuide.com.au you are able to search, manage and save your applications quick and easy with the use of the online Application Form in our members area.
The Application Form allows members of the Aged Care Guide to send their application details to ten facilities per day.
If a placement consultant is helping you search for a home then they will monitor vacancies for you.
