About Aged Care Connect

Personalised Aged Care Placement Specialists

Experienced Residential Care Placement Team

Aged Care Connect was established in 2002 after observing the difficulties that families encountered when they approached the task of placing a relative into residential care.

"Among the many ways that we support families in finding Mum or Dad quality residential aged care, most are based on using our detailed knowledge and experience. However, family clients have told us that the major benefit is to have a caring person actively listening and involved as the Family navigates their journey through the aged care placement maze." Liz Carroll (Aged Care Connect - Founder)

Principles

  • Each person requiring aged care is a unique individual with different life experiences and their own specific needs
  • Each person requiring aged care should be treated with utmost respect and their dignity is to be protected at all times; no matter what health care needs they require
  • Our service must always reduce the anxiety and stress for the family carer by providing accurate and current information and sharing experiences of other family carers who have faced similar situations

Each new family approaching the emotional task had very similar concerns, undertook the same activities, devoting time and effort only to uncover the same information and made the same mistakes as families that had gone before them.

There had to be a better way to complete this process and to achieve a positive outcome for the family.

We set about to completely understand all aspects of aged care placement ranging from the categories and alternatives available, the way in which the financials are calculated, the quality of care and lifestyle activities delivered by the different aged care providers and emotional aspects commonly experienced by the family.

We made it our single purpose to be able to provide information to our new family clients to reduce the level of anxiety and stress.

The team at Aged Care Connect have assisted many family clients through the aged care maze.

Our Managers have completed the Quality Assessors course conducted by the Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency, providing the understanding of the requirements that the Commonwealth has specified in relation to the provision of quality residential care.

This awareness of quality standards in Australia's aged care system combined with the experiences gained through working with many families means that we are at the forefront of understanding all aspects of aged care placement.

We would welcome sharing our knowledge and experience about aged care placement with you and being personally involved with your family during this most important time.
