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.
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.
