Assessment of eligibility
Working out the cost
Moving and settling in
The Federal Government’s website MyAgedCare.com is a useful resource in finding residential aged care in your local and surrounding suburbs. In your preparation to moving to aged care, it is important that you get financial advisory services early on so you can avoid stress and worry about nursing home costs, and how to pay for them.
