Aged care advice
At Morrows, we have extensive experience in planning for residential aged care.
There are so many factors to consider when searching for the appropriate services to ensure that the transition to residential care is seamless, and comfortable as possible. ‘Your financial future, tailored your way’ is our philosophy, and everything we do, from initial communications through to establishing your needs, underpins this goal.
Being well-planned and ready to put your strategy into place for residential aged care, is not only sensible, but it also helps both you and your family throughout the entire process to adapt to a changing environment.
You may like to ask your adviser to facilitate a family meeting which will begin the discussion. So by engaging Morrows to facilitate this family meeting, you will be able to openly:
- Discuss options and preferences
- Explore each person’s concerns, and address them
- Decide who needs to be involved in any aspect of the planning
Open discussions are the first step to an effective decision-making process and will be imperative in making choices that suit your individual needs. Your adviser can provide advice, and they can also offer an impartial and objective view, which has been developed through years of experience in working through these issues with other families. Many people choose to write a list of things that help them make this decision in a concise way.
With a personalised approach, Morrows helps clients connect with their purpose and choose an approach that is suited to their individual needs.
