Other issues caveats:Help on this termDisaggregations within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations. Some disaggregations may result in numbers too small for publication.

ACAP assessment is required to access residential aged care, Community Aged Care Packages (CACP), Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH), EACH Dementia (EACH-D) and the Transition Care Program. ACAP assessment is not required for Home and Community Care (HACC) and Veterans’ Home Care (VHC).

This indicator presents the number of aged care assessment completed during a 12 month period. A larger number of aged care assessments would be conducted over this period but a proportion of these are not completed and do not proceed for formal delegate approval of care. Reasons for non-completion of commenced assessments include changes in accommodation circumstances, changes in carer circumstances etc. This indicator does therefore not represent all assessment activity undertaken by Aged Care Assessment Teams during a 12 month period.
