Transitioning from a fully independent lifestyle into aged care is often an overwhelming and emotional time for most people. Sometimes it is forced upon us (or our loved ones) due to a change in health, financial affairs or death of a relative.
Ideally, it is best to consider aged care (and its many implications for lifestyle) at a time well beforehand. Not only is this less stressful and can assist in canvasing everyone’s wishes, but it will ensure you will not be financially disadvantaged by archaic rules and regulations. This can retain your wealth or direct it to family members / trusts so your overall welfare will be achieved.
There is seemingly an infinite amount of choice and obtaining the right kind of help for us or our friends and relatives has become exceptionally confusing. At Estate Planning Strategists we will guide you through with a simplified transition into elderly life. This service is based upon 30 years personal experience by our principal, Michael Phillips, in managing lifelong clients, just as our practice has been handed through from father to son.
Here are some options to consider for your loved ones:
- Staying at home
- Aged care facilities
- Being a carer
- Government initiatives
- Insurance and Funeral bonds
Whether circumstances have changed suddenly as a result of a stroke or sudden fall or if you are planning for the future, the decision to employ aged care services should revolve around one aspect only – ensuring you or your loved one will live the best lifestyle they can get.
During this process you should first realistically consider whether you or your loved one can cope with their normal daily activities. If the answer is no, then you should evaluate what kind of help would they need and subsequently where to get it from.
With a seemingly infinite amount of choice, obtaining the right kind of help for ourselves, our friends and relatives has become exceptionally confusing. Through our comprehensive directory of products, services and facilities this page will guide you through an uncomplicated transition into elderly life.
Michael will personally recommend and guide you through the process seamlessly.
