It’s no secret that December is one of the busiest times of the year and your to do list grows instead of shrinks!
You’ve got your endless present ideas, Christmas parties to attend and host, and family holidays to plan. The end of the year is approaching fast, and it’s easy to forget about important decisions, preparations and planning for the new year amongst the festive celebrations.
So – here’s our friendly nudge to anyone thinking about seeking out aged care options – Start Now!
Cut the Christmas queue by starting the process now.
Here’s a universal truth: no one likes to wait in line. It’s tiring, time-consuming and frustrating. So as highly experienced independent aged care consultants, believe us when we say that Christmas is the busiest time in residential care and if you don’t start the process now, you will be waiting in a long queue come New Year.
By getting on top of your loved one’s residential aged care now, you’ll cut out the waitlists, skip the queue and start on a strong footing for 2022.
Here’s how Well Placed Care can help you skip the queue…
Finding the right aged care option isn’t always easy, especially if you’re trying to do this on your own. The time and knowledge required of you to obtain documentation and find appropriate care is often limited. We know that many of the processes involved in the aged care system can be complex and time consuming.
By letting us take care of the necessary details, we’ll cut your time in half and have you ready to go before the madness of the festive season descends on the residential care space!
We’ll provide a high-quality advocacy & consultancy service in a short time-frame:
- Our years of industry experience means we’ll be able to efficiently put together a list of high-quality aged care facilities for your family to review. Not only will this cut out the time you’d put into researching facilities, but you’re assured complete transparency and honesty from us because we operate as independent aged care consultants meaning we have no affiliations with any facilities.
- We have long term positive relationships with a large pool of quality care providers in Melbourne. This means we can negotiate aged care fees, secure various discounts and get priority placements on your behalf.
- We’ll support you through the minefield of bureaucracy, administration & paperwork.
We want you to experience the benefits of being proactive and not reactive.
By being proactive, you’re allowing space to free yourself of stress and instead enjoy the festivities with your family. You can relax with the knowledge that you’ve set up a high-quality care plan for your loved one and secured their spot in an aged care facility that will meet their individual care needs.

Are you worried your loved one will miss out on Christmas if they’re in residential care?
A part from being busy this time of year, another reason why people don’t seek out residential care for their loved ones is a fear that they’ll miss out on Christmas with the family.
If you have a loved one in permanent care, do not worry.
They will always have the freedom and flexibility to come and go as they please, and to be with your family on all kinds of special occasions such as Christmas. Provided their clinical needs are met, your loved one can stay 52 nights away per year from their facility (outside of COVID-19 restrictions). These days can be broken up into segments of weeks, days or weekly events like having a meal every Saturday night with the family.
This is our gift to you – starting strong in your aged care journey, being prepared and skipping the waitlist.
