Starting your Journey in Aged Care Placement:
When you are starting the aged care placement process, it can feel totally overwhelming. You may not even know where to begin. That’s where Well Placed Care steps in.
We will meet with you and your family and listen to your story to better understand your specific aged care needs.
Our initial consultation is important for us to gain a broad understanding of your situation. Along with any desired location, personal, medical, cultural and religious needs and get an insight of your financial situation to allow us to tailor a placement plan and options that best suit your expectation and requirements.
We will explain all related fees and charges of RAD (Refundable Accommodation Deposit), DAP (Daily Accommodation Payment) and ES (Extra Services) fee thresholds and exemptions. Whether you are just at the planning stage, in need of some short term respite or permanent care, all aspects of the care plan are touched on so as to recommend the best outcome for you.
Allow us to assist you any required aged care assessments (My Aged Care), options on home care providers, general enquiries or concerns from any outside correspondence.
We will liaise with My Aged Care, Centrelink, hospitals, social workers, ACAT, facilities, financial and estate planners etc. on your behalf.
We have a network of specialists in these areas that can provide sound advice that will give you further peace of mind.
Forms and Applications
The formal requirements for change of life can be very complex, daunting and time-consuming.
Allow us to assist you with documentation, completion of forms, applications, and their submission to the relevant authorities and organisations, as required.
Finding your New Home
Once we are on the way with the above processes, we will prepare a short list of appropriate home care providers and facilities that will suit your current or future situation.
All appointments will be booked by us and we will attend facility tours with you. We will advocate on your behalf, offering support and guidance to enable you to make an informed decision.
We negotiate fees and charges for you, which is crucial to achieve the best financial outcome for you and your loved ones.
For many, change and entering a new home can be very overwhelming.
We explain what to expect. Guiding you along the way.
We can also recommend services that may assist, from removalists and cleaners to vendor advocates.
We will follow up post placement, as we are passionate about making sure our clients are happy and secure.
Building a trusting relationship is paramount to our success and we see client welfare as the number one priority.
