Navigating the world of aged care is, for some, a whole other realm and often comes with unexpected challenges, a tonne of new information to learn and barriers to overcome.
More often than not, families have the burden of making huge decisions thrust upon them very suddenly, and just to rub salt into their wounds, they have to have made them yesterday.
The Aged Care Ready team are often asked how we do it all. There are a number of answers to this. 1) We understand the system, 2) we have been doing it for a long time, and 3) we don’t do it all.
Yes, you read the last one correctly…We DON’T do it all.
Just like we’re engaged to assist individuals and families find the right aged care facility or in home help provider for their needs, we also bring in our trusted experts to help our clients make the right financial and legal decisions. We call this the “power team”, because we all work together in achieving the best possible results for our clients.
The decision as to which aged care facility to choose is multifaceted.
It is not only a healthcare decision, but also a financial, legal and lifestyle decision. For this reason, we have searched, tried and tested tirelessly for the best in the business and only recommend a close knit group of experts, so that our clients get the best advice possible.
“If you’re anything like me, your eyes will glaze over when presented with multiple options/investment strategies and numbers,” says Naomi Anderson.
“And I don’t know about you, but I also don’t speak legalese. But lucky for us, specialist Aged Care Financial Planners and Solicitors do, and they love it.”
So how do you find the right person for great advice on your individual circumstance? Here’s our criteria:
- They must be qualified/accredited/registered
- They MUST have significant experience in the Aged Care Sector (not just “I’ve done it a couple of times”)
- They must be up to date with the changing legislation
- They must be reputable
- Their costs must be transparent, upfront and reasonable
In addition to specialist financial planners and solicitors, we also refer to a very small group of real estate agents (if they are required) who are tried and trusted.
