Sydney Residential Aged Care Advice and Consulting

Leaving the family home and moving into Residential Aged care is a major life change for individuals, partners and families.  This can be a time of great stress and confusion for everyone concerned, with new and uncertain personal and financial issues.

Common concerns include ...

Selling

Will I have to sell my home? This is one of the biggest concerns for aged care residents and often, there is little choice. With the right advice however, many aged care residents are able to retain the family home.

Care

How do I decide which care option to use? Before making a decision to enter Residential Aged Care, you may wish to consider other options such as in home care, or even private care. We can help you to understand the various Aged care options

Costs

Will I have enough money? When you start looking at residential Aged care, there are often some big numbers involved. Consulting with Zenith Aged Care can evaluate affordability of your chosen facility and provide reassuring financial modelling

Pension

Will I lose my pension? This is probably the single most common question we get around Aged Care. The effect on a resident's pension can be greatly influenced by their Aged care funding decisions. Early advice is vital

Estate

What happens to my Estate? Often estate plans are made without consideration of Aged care. It is important that those plans are reviewed in light of Aged care decisions. We can work with your Solicitor to ensure the correct outcome is achieved
