About The Book
Age is inevitable. It comes to all of us if we are lucky. What distinguishes us is, however, how we plan for it. And a key element in the plan is the appropriate aged care.
This book is intended for those who wish to secure the best possible outcome for aged care…whether it is care for themselves or for loved ones. In it we examine some of the legal and financial implications of the various accommodation options for older people…including aged care facilities, as well as granny flats and life tenancies, retirement villages, communities and caravan park for over 55s.
