We have been assisting families with residential care placement for many years and you can use that knowledge and experience today.
We help those who need to find a quality and affordable residential care home for their elderly relative.
We can coordinate and supervise every step of the placement to suit you or the needs of your loved one.
We minimise the stress of moving to residential care.
We are a trusted partner with many other service providers, including many major hospitals and the RSL.
Senior Moves is an experienced independent Aged Care Placement Service operating since 2002 under the same ownership and management team.
Decisions have to be made in a limited time frame and will have a major impact on someone very close to you.
What are the steps required to achieve a successful placement outcome? How can you be sure that the chosen aged care home is the best available?
A complete understanding of the care, accommodation and lifestyle services available requires detailed research and takes time.
Placing your elderly loved one into any aged care home should never be left to chance - we can save you time, money and reduce your stress level.
Most families are surprised to learn that Residential Accommodation Deposits (RAD's) and additional service fees (ASF's) can be negotiated with the aged care provider.
We have developed successful steps to reduce residential accommodation fees and additional service fees to make the accommodation and lifestyle services more affordable for our family clients.

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.

We research and explain the available options based on your detailed family needs and requirements. We explain how aged care financials are calculated so that you are fully informed.
Whether you have a Home Care Package, NDIS funding or need private home care services - we can arrange home care support and supports for you to make sure you remain independent at home for as long as possible.
Respite Care can give you the chance to de-stress, restore your physical and mental energy, and keep your life in balance. Senior Moves can help you to arrange respite in an emergency.
We can find local daycare activities that may be available for the person you care for. We can secure the best available respite care placement in your preferred location.
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. We can secure the best available permanent care placement in your preferred location.
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. We have been saving money for our family clients for many years. Talk to us if you wish to save on the RAD expenditure.
We complete all of the necessary Centrelink and DVA forms (SA457 and SA485) and answer any questions about implications for Commonwealth pensions.
We can also advise of the process when a couple is entering residential care together.
Not all aged care providers deliver the same quality level of service - services provided and reputations vary greatly over time. 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 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 liaise with the aged care home to make sure that the transition is a smooth one.
