The person getting care must meet all of the following:
- score high enough on the Adult Disability Assessment Determination 2018 (ADAT)
- be likely to have the illness or disability for at least 12 months, unless it’s terminal
- get care from someone in their home, the carer's home or in hospital.
The ADAT has both:
- questions the carer must answer
- questions the health professional who treats the person getting care must answer.
