ASSESSMENT AND FUNDING

Assessment and Funding

Anyone considering entering residential care (a rest home) must have a current ‘needs assessment’ not more than 12 months old, that determines the client’s needs in regards to ongoing long-term residential care. We are required to have written confirmation prior to an admission that an assessment has been completed.

It is the responsibility of the client or the client’s agent to apply for a Residential Care Subsidy.

If you would like more information on how to attain an assessment or a subsidy, please contact us, or you can contact the Ministry of Health or Work and Income NZ
