Aged Care Placement Services
We will help you find the appropriate aged care placement in a residential aged care facility for your family member. We will assist the care recipient and you (the family/carers) in navigating the often complicated aged care system. This is where experience makes all the difference, negotiating with the many people involved in this complex process, including doctors, hospitals, Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACAT) and residential aged care staff.
We will find aged care facilities that meet your personal specifications, financial capacity and the assessed level of care.
If an ACAT has already provided you with an assessment, but you are unsure of where to begin or how to initiate care services - we can help. We can help to secure an appropriate aged care placement (or provide home care services). Your aged care choices have a long term effect on those people involved and we can make sure all care needs are taken care of to the satisfaction of all involved.
