What our clients say ....

  Liz and Ron - 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. - Mrs Gwen and Mr Brian Newell | Sept 2020  

  We have just gone through the complicated process of settling my father into a room at an aged care home. Most people don't realise that the accommodation payment is totally negotiable. After being told that some families borrow money to cover the accommodation payment I searched the internet and found a business that negotiates the accommodation payment. Aged Care Homes negotiates the accommodation payment on behalf of the family and in our case the accommodation payment required was reduced to what was asked for originally, saving Dad $121,000. My understanding is they will also search and find a suitable place for your family member. I highly recommend the service. They are understanding and efficient, without being aggressive towards the facility they are dealing with. Just thought you may want the details to pass on to anyone who is going through the process of finding an aged care facility: Ms Kerrin Peltzer  

  I must say how delighted we are with the aged care home, it is so wonderful. Mother is extremely happy and Brian and I are so impressed with the care. We cant thank you enough for all your help, its been wonderful and we really wouldnt be in this position now without you. I can return interstate to my own home with a much lighter heart - confident in mothers care and happiness. Sincere thanks and all the best: Mrs Lorraine Connell  

  Thanks for your help with everything - you take that burden off people's shoulders just by knowing the ins and outs of the industry that most of us are never exposed to. To bounce off someone 'that knows' is more help than you realise. Mrs Sharon Bell   

  Thanks. Mum has been in the aged care facility now for nearly 2 weeks, time goes quickly! Im still very pleased with the facility, the staff are very nice, and it is good to be able to visit more regularly as it is only 10 mins from home. The single room is just what I was hoping for, and we have started making it more homely with a nice coloured doona and pictures, and some of mums trinkets put in place. My eldest son called in the other day and he was so pleased and said it felt bright and friendly with the nice central gardens in the middle. It made him happy knowing his grandma was in a much nicer place than the previous aged care home. Cheers Mr Steven Muers

Covid-19 in Residential Care

Visitor Entry Rules (9th Oct 2020)

Aged Care Connect

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

Each new family:

  • Approached the emotional task with similar needs and concerns
  • Undertook the same activities - devoting their limited time and effort
  • Only to uncover the same information and make many of the same mistakes as families that had gone before them.

There had to be a better way to complete aged care placement and to achieve a more positive outcome for the family.

Over the years, we have assisted many families with the move to retirement living, serviced apartments, group homes, assisted living, supported residential services and Commonwealth subsidised aged care accommodation.

We have knowledge, experience and industry contacts which can help you today. If you have any questions, or need practical assistance, for your relative please contact our friendly team for a chat.

We enjoy sharing our knowledge and experience about aged care placement with new clients; and being involved with the family during this most important time.
