Aged Care Placement Services

About Senior Moves

Senior Moves is an experienced Aged Care Placement Consultancy and Senior Relocation Management Service.

Senior Moves have been helping families with admission to residential aged care, serviced apartments and assisted living since 2002 and have assisted many families through the process of residential care placement and senior relocation.

Senior Moves was established after we observed the stresses that most families encountered when they needed to place an elderly loved one into residential care.

Each new family

  • Approached the emotional task with similar needs and concerns
  • Undertook the same activities - devoting their limited time and valuable effort
  • Only to uncover the same information and make many of the same mistakes as families that had gone before them

There had to be a better way to complete this important activity and achieve a positive outcome for the family.

Over the years, Senior Moves have assisted many families with the move to retirement living, serviced apartments, group homes, assisted living, supported residential services and Commonwealth subsidised aged care accommodation.

The Senior Moves team have extensive knowledge, experience and trusted industry contacts that can help you today. If you have any questions or need practical support for your relative please contact our friendly team for a chat.

We enjoy sharing our knowledge and experience about placement and relocation with new clients, and being involved with the family during this most important time.

The Senior Moves Difference

  • be aware of local and current residential care options available.

  • negotiate the RAD accommodation fees and associated charges.
  • complete and submit all required paperwork including the Request for Combined Assets and Income Assessment.

  • advocate on your behalf through the wait-list process at your preferred aged care homes.
  • provide post-placement support during the settling in period.


  I would like to thank you for your professional advice and assistance with my sister Greta and her transition to residential care. Having your support and expertise took a load off my mind and made things clearer during the process. Greta is now safe at Good Shepherd Lodge and I see her on a regular basis.

  Thank you once again for everything. I am sleeping much better now, not having to worry about my Father's financial situation (at the aged care home) as much. What you have done is give me peace of mind that he can afford the extra ‘odd’ bill . I will be very happy to recommend your services.

  Thank you for the amazing job you've done for us. We cannot express enough what your support meant to us. You were a special blessing sent from heaven. Liz, I know we could never have managed without you. Our thanks and love to you both.

Whether the person you care for is physically frail, has been diagnosed with dementia or just cannot cope on their own anymore - it may be time to discuss your family needs with one of our caring specialists.

Negotiating Fees

negotiating aged care fees

Avoid paying more for residential care than you need to! With occupancy levels at historical lows, Refundable Accommodation Deposits (RAD) and additional service fees have never been more negotiable. Senior Moves has been saving money for our family clients for many years. Talk to us if you wish to save on the RAD expenditure.

Centrelink Forms

centrelink and DVA forms

Senior Moves complete all of the necessary Centrelink and DVA forms (SA457 and SA485) and answer any questions about implications for Commonwealth pensions. Senior Moves can advise of the process when a couple is entering residential care.
