Aged Care Connect have been helping families with entry to residential aged care, supported residential services, serviced apartments and assisted living since 2002, and have serviced more than 3,000 families through the process of residential care placement.
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 ?
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.
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.
Thanks again for your help in securing the room. We could see the relief in Mum’s face when she arrived at her room. Once she was dressed in street wear, not hospital wear, she seemed more confident and hopefully in time most if not all of the confidence she had before she entered hospital will return.

Thank you once again for everything. I am sleeping much better now, not having to worry about my Father's financial situation (at the aged care home) as much. What you have done is give me peace of mind that he can afford the extra odd bill . I will be very happy to recommend your services.

Thank you for the amazing job you've done for us. We cannot express enough what your assistance meant to us. You were a special blessing sent from heaven. Liz, I know we could never have managed without you. Our thanks and love to you both.

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.
Our dedicated aged care placement specialists will help you with all aged care placement activities; you will:
We research and explain the available options based upon your detailed family needs and requirements. We can explain how aged care financials are calculated so that you are fully informed.
Whether you have a Home Care Package, NDIS funding or need private home care services - we can arrange home care assistance and supports for you to make sure you remain independent at home for as long as possible.
Respite Care can give you the chance to de-stress, restore your physical and mental energy, and keep your life in balance. Aged Care Connect can help you to arrange respite in an emergency.
We can also talk to you about local day-care activities that may be available for the person you care for. We can secure the best available respite care placement in your preferred location.
Whether the person you care for is physically frail, has been diagnosed with dementia or just cannot cope on their own anymore - it may be time to discuss your family needs with one of our caring specialists. We can secure the best available permanent care placement in your preferred location.
Avoid paying more for residential care than you need to! With occupancy levels at historical lows, Refundable Accommodation Deposits (RAD's) and additional service fees have never been more negotiable. We have been saving money for our family clients for many years. Talk to us if you wish to save on the RAD expenditure.
We complete all of the necessary Centrelink / DVA forms (SA457 and SA485) and answer any questions about implications for Commonwealth pensions.
We can also advise of strategies when a husband and wife are considering residential care together.
How to Deal with Depression in the Elderlyhttps://t.co/klDfwdlvZv— aged care connect (@agedcareconnect) August 9, 2021
Depression is an illness. Just like the flu, depression can leave a person physically exhausted and unable to cope with everyday life. Don’t belittle your loved one’s depression by telling him to “snap out of it.” pic.twitter.com/gLYdwUKi3H
An individual placement plan is developed for each of our family clients.
The placement plan contains detailed client requirements and family preferences, shortlist of suitable facilities and a timetable of work completed and planned to achieve the successful placement outcome.
Our family clients can request the current status of the tasks on the plan. This formal approach helps with communication between all interested parties, including social workers in the hospital.
We also request feedback from families of our services and where we can continually improve and revise our service for future family clients.

My mother used to stand in front of greeting card racks and weep when she read the messages inside of Mother’s Day cards. She cried because she felt sad and guilty for not loving her own mother. pic.twitter.com/8N2e3cRZaF

Covid-19 and the findings of the Royal Commission into Aged Care have increased awareness regarding quality services in aged care homes.
This has reinforced the benefit to seek independent and experienced assistance when placing your loved one into any aged care home.
We have been successfully negotiating and reducing aged care accommodation fees for many years. If you would like to discuss your individual situation (and also reduce your own accommodation fees) - simply contact us.
