Choosing the right Aged Care Home for yourself or a loved one is an emotional experience. The process is riddled with pitfalls, the fees are confusing and it’s one of these decisions you really don’t want to get wrong. So it’s good to know you can have an Aged Care Home placement Advisors on your side who can provide independent advice.

If you or a loved one must move into an Aged Care Home, talk to CareAbout about finding the right support to guide you through the often daunting process.

CareAbout’s Aged Care Home placement service connects you with experienced professionals who work for your family. CareAbout Aged Care Home placement Advisors do not work for any Aged Care Home, and is a free service for you and your family.

CareAbout Advisors work to get the best outcome for your loved one by:

  • connecting you with partners that you may need throughout your journey – we have access to some of the best realtors and financial advisors
  • guiding you through the confusing maze of aged care
  • providing you with a tailored list of Aged Care Home options based on your needs

The four-step process

CareAbout’s Advisors will take you through four important steps.

  1. Understands the needs of the care recipient

    Your CareAbout Advisor will get a detailed understanding of your loved one. What are their needs, what do they want and what will make them happy and comfortable? Using this they will provide you with a short-list of homes with vacancies.

  2. Explains the options in clear, easy-to-understand language

    Aged care is confusing! Your CareAbout Advisor will help you compare services and facilities and explain your options in language you can understand.

  3. Connect you with experts

    Finding an Aged Care Home for a loved one is more complex than simply choosing a home. We get tricky questions every day about finance options, real estate, legal advice, and more as a subsequent part of the Aged Care Home process. For those questions, we look to the experts. We’re experts backed by experts and help point you in the right direction to ensure all your questions are answered.
  4. Assists in the completion of paperwork

    And once you’ve made your choice, there’s the admissions, applications and required paperwork. A Care About expert can’t complete the paperwork for you, but they can guide you through it.

Wouldn’t it be good to have an expert on your side who can provide independent advice that ensures your needs are being met and your interests are at the forefront of consideration?

Why do I need an Aged Care Home Advisor?
