Centrelink and Aged Care

Centrelink and Aged Care

Don’t know where to start?

It’s not easy to place a loved one into care and it’s not easy to understand how it all works.

At Lifespan Financial Planning, we can show you how you how you can afford the aged care facility of your choice. Aged Care costs can be both expensive and confusing, however at Lifespan we show you how to use the concessions you are entitled to.

Part of what we do is help you understand how the aged care decisions you make can affect your, or your relative’s, financial position, how long the money will last and what happens to your estate when things are not put properly in place..

The big financial issues for aged care can include daily care fees, accommodation bonds and cash flow.”

Our advisers can assist you in negotiating bond expenses, optimising Centrelink and minimising your out of pocket expenses. A Lifespan adviser can help you avoid the common pitfalls and mistakes people make.

To explore your options contact Lifespan today and we’ll put you in touch with a local expert who can guide you through the steps necessary to chart a course through the maze that is aged care.
