Finding the right aged care home is difficult and stressful most of the times for most families.
Decisions have to be made in a limited time frame and your decision will affect someone very close to you.
Not all aged care providers deliver the same quality level of service - services provided and reputations vary greatly.
One aged care home may be a good choice for one family but may be inappropriate for another family, with different family requirements.
Also, there are always changes being made to the rules and regulations and new care and accommodation solutions are being developed and introduced.
Having an experienced single point of contact to find the best solution and to coordinate the move will help you greatly. You will have 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.
