Support in Aged Care

As at 31 December 2017, there were 104,602 people waiting for a home care support package. A staggering 26.70% had been waiting for more than 12 months, although many had a lower care package in the interim.

How do you increase your chances of receiving the support you need to stay in your home?

  • Arrange to have an Aged Care Assessment to assess eligibility.
  • Research approved home care support providers in your area, what they offer and the costs.
  • Once approved, work with the home support team to develop a package of services you require and work out all the costs you will pay, and what may be subsidised by the government.
  • Sign the home care agreements.

Of course, all of this is much easier with the help of a financial adviser who specialises in aged care.
