Aged care planning

When you start considering aged care for you or your loved ones we can help you navigate the complexity.

Considering aged care is a big decision and not an easy one to make. A lot of emotions are involved and you don’t need the additional concerns about the financial side. Let us help you or your loved ones with a financial plan to make it easier for you to make the best decision for you and your family.

The cost of aged care can create stress for families in an already emotional situation. Getting professional help can give you peace of mind.

Supporting a loved when they are no longer are able to manage on their own is very difficult. You want the best for them while managing your own busy life with career and family.

What is the best solution? What can they afford? The financial uncertainty can only add to the frustration. This is where MyLifeMyAdvice can step in. We can put together a financial plan that will secure their future care.

We can help your loved one:

  • identify the costs that will apply
  • make sure the costs are structured so that aged care is affordable both in the short and long term.
  • in the decision on which assets – such as the family home - should be kept or sold
  • make sure they get the most out of the government benefits available, such as the Age Pension
  • consider and understand estate planning complexities.

Getting your loved one the best care that is financially sustainable will help not only them but also you. Instead of being ‘the problem solver’ you can get back to being yourself around them.

What are the options?

When you are in a situation where you feel like you cannot manage at home on your own there are several options available to you.

You can get help at home.

  • Personal care like help getting dressed
  • Household jobs like cleaning, washing or gardening
  • Delivery of meals
  • Nursing, physiotherapy and other care
  • Transport assistance
  • Modifications to your home like hand rails or ramps
  • Equipment like walking frames

You can consider short term help when you are recovering from an illness or after having had an accident. This is also an option if you or your carer needs a break (respite care)

If you find you need ongoing help with day-to-day tasks or health care, a residential aged care home lets you live in a supported environment where help is available 24 hours a day.

Go to myagedcare.gov.au to read more about your options. My Aged Care is an Australian Government website and phone line to help you find out what aged care services may be available to help you.

How can we help?

We can be with you every step of the way from starting to consider options, getting an assessment and eventually chosing for the future. We help analyse your options and make sure you make an informed decision that secures you both in the shorter and longer term.

Make an appointment for a consultation with an aged care specialist about the key decisions that lie ahead, the options available to you or your loved ones, and the cost of our advice.
