    An assessment is needed where there are complex aged care needs and services (including respite, residential care, or home support services) are required.
    Referrals to ACAT can be made by anyone, and it does not have to be from a doctor.  GPs are often the referrer, but also families and other professionals.  ACAT assessments are made in hospital or in the community by an ACAT team usually consisting of nurse, social worker or other health care professional.  The above information can also be sourced in the following website:
