The free new Aged Care Decisions App is the first of its kind in Australian aged care.

The App makes finding, comparing and securing an aged care vacancy for a loved one fast, efficient and stress-free.

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
  • Get in touch with your Placement Specialist via phone, email or App message.

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