To achieve the best outcome from aged care planning, you’ll have to make a series of informed choices. This can be daunting when you also have to negotiate with nursing homes, work out the costs and how to fund them, and deal with the department of Health and Aging, Centrelink or Veterans Affairs. The most reliable way to achieve peace of mind is to enlist the guidance of a specialist adviser. We’ll show you how to maximise Centrelink or DVA payments and help you make an informed decision whether to sell the family home or rent it out.
