Assessment is the gateway to HACC Services. It establishes the expectations and understandings of the person and their carer and sets up the initial pathway through the service system that best meet their needs.
People seeking HACC services can approach any HACC funded organisation and BDNH is one of those and receive a service specific assessment for the HACC services they provide. This approach – no wrong door – is a key feature of the Victorian health and community care system and is embedded in the philosophy of HACC service delivery. Initial screening will determine if the person is in the HACC target group, and identify the person’s need and priority for the services that the HACC organisation provides. If other needs are identified, the organisation will refer the client on to other service providers that can meet that identified need.
In addition to this, HACC Assessment Services are funded to provide assessments that are broader and more comprehensive. These are called Living at Home Assessments. A Living at Home Assessment takes place, wherever possible in the client’s home and assists people to explore a range of ways to live independently and remain active members of their community. Clients can refer themselves to a HACC Assessment Service or be referred by a GP, health service or community organisation.For further information call 53341500 or email email@example.com
