Our Services - Aged Care Ready
If you're feeling overwhelmed by all the aged care options out there, and want to take back control of the process, then our Home To Care packages will ensure your loved one has the right in-home care support, all the way through to transitions to care with confidence. Getting professional help with one of life’s biggest emotional and financial undertakings will ensure you are making the right decision for your family's future.
We have an end to end package for you, as well as individual solutions:
Home to Care Essentials - Package
First we work with you to assess the options between in-home care or transitioning to a care facility, perhaps a combination of both over time.
We also set up the right budget for your needs to protect you from any funding gaps.
We ensure you have access to the government funding you are entitled to and walk you through the cost of care at every milestone. If needed we bring in the right financial specialists to make sure your loved one can afford their care into the future, and the money doesn't run out unexpectedly.
Our specialist transition consultant and home care coordinators will then implement in-home care as needed or develop a shortlist of care facilities that meet your needs and budget. Saving you time in researching hundreds of facilities that do not meet your requirements or getting lost in the home-care maze.
Home to Care Plus - Individual Solutions
We also offer our most popular services as individual services, so that you can get help with the areas you most need.
Ageing In-Home With Care
Ageing in home is a fantastic option but a lot of in-home support is needed to do it safely. Our specialist consultants work with your family to ensure you have access to the government funding, as there is a lot of financial support for in-home care now. We then bring in all the appropriate providers to make this a safe and viable solution.
Standard Of Care Reporting
If you have a particular facility you are considering but want to be sure it is safe and secure, we can investigate this for you. We provide accredited reports that show if a facility has compliance breaches, or are not meeting their duty of care to residents. We compile this information and provide you an easy to read report on the reputational history of each home.
Care Facility Selection
If you are finding the search process overwhelming and don't have time to research all of the residential care facilities and other options, our specialist placement consultants can work alongside you to shortlist facilities that suit your needs.
Have you or your loved ones been assessed and approved for a Level 1, 2, 3 or 4 Home Care Package?
Our team of Aged Care Angels can help you or your loved ones anywhere across Australia in navigating this time consuming and crucial process.
At Aged Care Ready, we love the process.
We love getting to know our clients and helping them figure out what they want to spend their allocated packages on to improve their quality of life and promote their independence so that they can stay in their own home longer. All the while, making sure that they are getting the most out of their funding.
We also check any notices of non-compliance and sanctions, along with their reputation and company values. These are often forgotten about in the midst of the confusion for family members.
After we get to know our clients, their needs and conducting the research on their behalf, we provide our clients with a detailed, but very clear report so that they can make an informed decision as to which provider they wish to engage.
Once the work is done and a Home Care Provider service is engaged, we don’t just leave you to your own devices. We still hold your hand after the process.
As a part of our guarantee, we check in on you regularly throughout the year to ensure that you are still happy with the Home Care Provider.
Does this sound like you? Are you ready to go but mainly overwhelmed and don’t know where to start/what to look for?
We can do the work for you no matter where you are in Australia. Contact us to discuss the options.
