For many families, funding aged care for their loved ones can be one of the most stressful decisions in their lives. Sometimes, the decision to transition to aged care is needed quickly, and the costs can come as quite a shock.
That’s where Care360 comes in – we help make the process easier with our Aged Care Navigation Service. A streamlined dashboard for finding, funding and following your loved one into care.
AGED CARE FINANCE OPTIONS
Helping you choose the best finance options for aged care
Families considering aged care for their loved ones will typically face many decisions to fund the costs. Will they need to sell property? Will they need bridging finance in the meantime? Should they get financial advice before making these big decisions? Do they have the legal authority to make these decisions for their loved ones? That’s where Care360 can help.
Care360 Aged Care Navigation Service is here to help
If you haven’t been through the process of helping a loved one transition into aged care, you may feel like there is so much to learn. Our Aged Care Consultants will walk you through the requirements and offer solutions at each stage.
From finding the right aged care home, getting an assessment, funding aged care, and selling the family home to helping ensure your loved one’s legal and financial affairs are in order.
The process for aged care usually begins with a government-mandated assessment known as ACAT. We can help point you in the right direction to organise this assessment.
Finding the best aged care
Care360’s Quality of Care Report helps you evaluate over 2,500 aged care homes tailored to your preferences for location, budget, services, and room type – it takes 10 minutes online.
Aged care funding options
Our Aged Care Consultants have access to a panel of providers who can deliver loans to cover the costs of aged care until a longer-term solution can be determined.
Real Estate Advice
If the long-term funding option is to sell a family property, our Aged Care Consultants can help you find the best real estate agents and property stylists to ensure maximum sale value.
Making decisions on behalf of your loved one may require legal advice to organise Powers of Attorney and Guardianship. Our Aged Care Consultants can connect you with reputable legal support.
A certified, specialist Aged Care Financial Advisor understands the importance and impact of decisions at this time – and how they relate to costs and finances. They can lay out all your options and explain the pros and cons.
