Benefits of using the Aged Care Connect placement service

Don’t struggle to understand all of the options available by your own – without professional and experienced help – this is a decision too important.

  • You will be assisted by an experienced residential care placement team.
  • You will not need to rush around, wasting time visiting aged care service providers which are either not suitable or have no prospect of placement in the near future.
  • You will minimise the time, effort and stress usually involved in finding the right residential care solution.
  • You will receive unbiased information and recommendations, we are not affiliated with any aged care operator or financial planning firm.

Selecting the right aged care option …

If selecting the right aged care option simply involved just browsing online aged care directories or reading glossy advertising material! A complete assessment of care, accommodation, and lifestyle services provided by an aged care provider requires time-consuming research that goes well beyond images and content provided by the aged care providers. There are a large number of factors to consider, so choosing the right aged care home for your family member can become a daunting task for the unprepared.
