WE ARE lucky enough that we can live in a country where we can lead happy and healthy lives, however not all of us can continue to live independently; many will need access to help in the home, or residential aged care services.
Preparing for you or a loved one having to enter care can be a difficult and stressful time.
There is enough to deal with, apart from having to consider how to finance the move and cover living expenses going forward.
Pinnacle Financial Planning can help make sense of the ever changing rules and fees and explain in plain English how they’ll affect you and your family. Your adviser can guide you through the process, providing professional advice and support to create effective solutions for you and your family.
While the government subsidises care based on your assets and income, you’ll also be contributing toward the cost.
There’s a range of care options available including “in-home” support.
Such a large decision can take time.
The team at Pinnacle Financial Planning understand just how important it is to weigh up every option before taking the next step.
This is why we believe it is important to meet with an adviser now, rather than when you or your loved one is sick or in hospital, unable to return home.
The team at Pinnacle Financial Planning offer a free half hour information meeting where they can look at an overview of your current situation and discuss how they may be able to help with your future planning.
