you understand the entire process.  To assist you in getting started, we have provided you 

with 5 easy steps on how to enter Coorparoo Aged Care.

Five Step Pathway

Are you eligible?
One of the first steps is to arrange a free assessment with an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). This assessment is usually performed by a health professional such as a Doctor, Nurse or Social Worker.
Finding the right aged care home
Every aged care home is different. Therefore, it is important that you have a tour of Coorparoo Aged Care to ensure that the home suits the individual’s lifestyle and needs.
What are the costs?
You may be asked to pay towards your accommodation, care and daily living costs. The amount you will pay will depend on your financial situation. Please refer to our ‘Payments’ section for an explanation of fees and payments or simply visit
