Finding the right aged care home is difficult and stressful for most families. Decisions have to be made in a limited time and your decision will affect someone very close to you.
Not all aged care providers are the same – services and reputations vary – one aged care home may be appropriate for one family but may be totally inappropriate for another family, with totally different familye requirements.
In addition, there are always changes being made to the rules and regulations and new alternatives being introduced to the landscape.
Having an experienced single point of contact to coordinate the transition will help you greatly. You will benefit from having an experienced guide to properly plan; short-list the best accommodation options for you, complete all of the application paperwork, negotiate the accommodation fees, and then to liaise with the aged care home to make sure that the transition is a smooth one.
The recent announcement of a Royal Commission into Aged Care and media reports regarding Retirement Villages and aged care homes has reinforced the need to seek professional assistance when placing a loved one into a Retirement Village or Aged Care Home.
