So many people tell us that Age Care is so complex and complicated it’s too difficult to understand and they just want to make sure mum and dad are looked after…….
Australians are living longer than ever before and currently rank as the 8th longest living nationalities for both men (average of 80.4) and women (average of 84.6). With more Australians living longer comes a greater need for aged care services.
The government provides support packages for “aging at home” as well as for moving into an aged care residence but you will need to undergo an ACAT assessment to determine if you are eligible and if so, the most appropriate package for you.
It can be a stressful time for the entire family when a family member needs to go into aged care, the cost structure can be confusing and surprising, decisions often need to be made about the family home and as it can be difficult to find a placement in the right area time is often short when a decision needs to be made.
We can help you to understand the aged care process and navigate the various packages, fee structures and available strategies so that you are well informed in a timely manner so you can get the best outcome for the best price.
