Supporting aged care facilities to deliver quality care

Ignite Healthcare’s expertise and knowledge is available to support your aged care facility in the following areas:

ACFI Consultancy & Government Funding Support

Need to maximise your government funding?

Ignite Healthcare’s knowledge of the Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) combined with understanding the care needs of your residents is a great way to unlock critical funds your facility may be entitled to.

Maintaining and improving your residential services requires funding support via government subsidies that our team can help you access. In fact, our gap analysis will ensure you’re receiving your maximum government support.

Our ACFI consultancy work includes:

  • a full systematic review and audit to comply with ACFI standards
  • liaising with your staff and ACFI coordinators
  • identifying opportunities to boost your facility’s ACFI funding
  • helping you submit ACFI applications, claims and re-appraisals correctly
