Moving Into An Aged Care

Moving in and your resident agreement
Moving into aged care and understanding your resident agreement can be a stressful time. We will always do our best to help make the transition as smooth as possible.
Here are some of the usual key steps involved in moving into Nanyima Care:
- Meet with us before your move-in day: It’s preferable to complete as much of the paperwork as possible before your move so that your move-in day can be just about you and helping you settle into your new home. It’s also important that you have time to read through all the documents, agreements and forms so that you don’t feel rushed in any way.
- Complete the Resident Agreement: If you’re able to come and meet with us before you move in, or alternatively on your move-in day, we will ask you to complete the Resident Agreement. The Resident Agreement is a legal document that outlines the terms of your residency, your rights and responsibilities and also those of Nanyima Care as your aged care provider. The Resident Agreement also details information relating to your financial obligations. It is important that you take the time to read and fully understand the Resident Agreement, including any schedules that form part of the Residential Agreement before you sign it. Our Administration Coordinator will be able to help you if you’re unsure about any of the terms of the Resident Agreement. You may also want to seek independent legal advice.
- Move-in: We will provide you with many of the furnishings you need including a bed, linen, bedside table, over-bed table, chair and cupboard space, however you may like to bring some of your own things to make it feel like home. In your Entry Pack, you’ll find a copy of our Welcome Home guide, which details everything you need to know about life at Nanyima Care. Your Entry Pack will also include a list of suggested items to bring with you into care as well as other useful information about preparing for your move.
