Discover options for the family home
The most common question we receive is whether or not the primary home has to be sold. Sometimes, selling the home is a reasonable option as it provides the ability to pay lump sum care fees, but often and depending on your situation it is not necessary to sell.
We can help you understand your situation and determine what your options for the home are. Our Accredited Aged Care Professionals™ can assist you with structuring your finances in the best way to get the most of your hard-earned assets.

Determine the impact on Centrelink and cash flow
Sometimes, but not always, moving to care can have an impact on Centrelink entitlements and cash flow. In some cases, Centrelink payments can increase or even provide the opportunity to begin a pension entitlement.
Our specialists can help you find out how your Centrelink entitlements and cash flow will be affected by a move and determine how to best structure your assets to get the most out of them as possible.
