This infographic will help you decide on what is the best thing to do about your aged care.
Contemplating residential aged care is extraordinarily complex. There are difficult emotional, physical and financial questions to consider. Typically, it comes when the older person is particularly vulnerable, perhaps after a fall or health scare.
They might be in hospital or in respite care and the decision to consider formal care needs to be made.
Who makes this decision?
Should it be a doctor? Or a family?
Would home care be better?
What can the person afford?
How far must the person move?
How do they fund the entry and ongoing costs of care?
Must the person sell their home?
The system does older Australians no favours. It is a complex maze, difficult to navigate even for professional financial advisers and people familiar with the health system. And the consequences of getting it wrong are high, whether it be financially or in quality of life.
So this infographic will help you decide on what is the best thing to do about your aged care.
What will happen after you were assessed by an Aged Care Team? What are the costs? How is the bond paid and how much is the daily care fee, are just some of the important details discussed in this infographic.
Give this a thorough look so you will have a better understanding on how to best deal with your aged care plans.
