After receiving an ACD Privacy Code from the Aged Care Decisions team, you will be able to:
- View & shortlist matched options – including reviews from other families
- Book tours, and receive confirmations of tour bookings from facilities
- Send direct messages to facilities
- Share the App and its information with family members; and

The Aged Care Decisions service is offered 100% free of charge to families.
