Aged care

Old-age can creep up on you. The years fly by and before you know it you’re in need of extra support.

The great news is the Government is providing more and more care for the elderly in the home – providing greater independence for older Australians. However, many Australians prefer or require the additional care provided in an Aged Care facility.

Either way, assessing your options in advance can help you through the transition more smoothly when the time arrives.

There is much to consider when it comes to choosing your aged care facility – after all you want a comfortable place to belong, with the best level of care available. Part of the decision however will come down to your finances and that’s where we can help.

We can help you answer some of the common questions such as:

> How much will I pay if I move into residential aged care?
> Do I have to sell my home when I move into aged care?
> What’s the deal with accommodation deposits?

We can help you get the right financial structure to get the right level of care for you while also protecting your assets and savings.
