Aged care can be a confusing area. Muirfield Financial Services can help.
We Specialise in Aged Care advice
Making the decision to enter aged care can be a very emotional one and once needed, people often find the complexity of aged care overwhelming. Having to make the difficult decisions during such a stressful and emotional time can adversely affect the person entering care over the long term.
Accredited Aged Care Professionals™, Melinda Planken and Kate Officer, can help you determine the costs applicable to your chosen facility, the impact on Centrelink entitlements, options for the family home, and cash flow strategies to ensure living needs will be met.
Individual circumstances will influence Aged Care fees and strategies - it is important any advice obtained is specific to the person entering care, prior to a decision being made.
How we Help
While Centrelink will advise you only of Centrelink consequences and Aged Care Facilities offer information about the costs of Aged Care, we help you put all the pieces together within the specific framework of your personal situation. Once the decision has been made to move to permanent care, Muirfield can clarify what fees will be payable. We provide specific advice on the following:
- Refundable Accommodation Deposits (RAD) or Daily Accommodation Payments (DAP)
- Daily Care Fee
- Means Tested Fee
- Extra Service Fees
- Options for the Family Home
- Maximising entitlements from Centrelink or Department of Veteran Affairs.
Financial Planning advice which captures your personal situation and provides peace of mind is essential prior to making any decisions regarding aged care.
