Finding your way through the aged care placement maze

Many families have told us that finding quality aged care for their elderly loved one was like "navigating a maze", but it really doesn't have to be that way.

When our aged care placement consultants help you with aged care placement activities, you will:

  • have a single point of contact for the complete aged care placement process
  • reduce the possibility of mistakes being made

  • minimise the cost of accommodation
  • make a more informed decison
  • and reduce your stress level

Are you overwhelmed by the aged care placement process ?

To fully understand the quality of care, accommodation and lifestyle services available you will need to complete detailed research and you will need time available to get that all done. What are the steps required to achieve the best placement for your elderly loved one ?

We have helping families with admission to aged care since 2002, and have assisted more than 3,000 families through the process of residential care placement. Our aged care placement consultants are mature, knowlegable, experienced and understand the emotional stress involved with placing a frail loved one into aged care.

How can you be sure that the care and accommodation you find is the best option ?

Placing your elderly loved one into any aged care home should never be left to chance or done in a hurry. We have already completed the research and have the information you need. We have been through the process many hundreds of times - and you will benefit from our experience and knowledge.

How do you choose between residential aged care options ?

  • Choosing between the available aged care homes and making the right decision can be daunting.
  • What is the quality of care at each home?
  • Are there worthwhile activity programs available?
  • Is the aged care home within my family budget?
  • Should I take a vacancy just because it is there - or will I forever regret my hasty decision ?

There are many aspects to consider; so choosing the right aged care home for your family can quickly become overwhelming for a beginner or the unwary.

An individual placement plan is developed for each of our family clients.
