Advice to minimise fees and maximise entitlements.

Make informed financial and legal decisions for your loved one

The difference between the best decision and the worst decision can add up to as much as $100,000 over five years.

Transitioning a loved one into aged care is a stressful and difficult process. The process can be confusing and the legal and financial aspects daunting. We can help you and other family members with the process, to ensure appropriate, and considered decisions are made for the care of your loved one and their estate.

We can help you answer questions like:

How should we pay for aged care?
What is a RAD or ACAT?
Where is the best place for care for my loved one?
How do I complete an income and asset test?
Review of current financial situation for the purpose of funding the aged care costs.
