Albury ACAT is located at Mercy Health Albury. It is part of the Murrumbidgee ACAT, which extends across the geographic area of the Murrumbidgee local health district, servicing Albury, Jindera, Tabletop and Burrumbuttock. The multidisciplinery team consists of registered nurses, occupational therapists, social workers and a geriatrician. It provides assessment, information, advice and assistance to frail older people who want to remain at home or who
are considering living in a residential care setting. The Albury ACAT comprehensively
assesses clients, taking into account the restorative, physical, medical,
psychological, and social dimensions of a person’s care needs.
Young ACAT is made up of an occupational therapist, social worker, nurse advisor/coordinator with access to a physiotherapist, psychogeriatric nurse and specialist geriatrician. Young ACAT provides services to the shires of Young, Harden and Boorowa. We assist frail aged clients and their families to reach the best possible decision about their care needs. These range from assisting clients to access appropriate services to remain safely at home, to assessment for high (nursing home) or low level (hostel) residential care. ACATs are very effective in helping older people remain independent for as long as possible.
