The Rethink team can assist with advocacy and liaise with facilities, family, providers and carers as follows:
Liaise with current care providers (home care and residential facilities).
Liaise with/arrange for real estate appraisals for sale or rental of the former home if required.
Liaise with the social worker in the hospital to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to facility.
Liaise with current professionals (solicitors, accountants, financial advisers) to ensure that advice is in line with current estate plan, and that any recommendations are carried out in a tax-effective way.
Liaise with Centrelink/DoHS to ensure that Means Tested Fee/Income Tested Fee assessment has been correctly completed, and if not, follow through with Centrelink/DoHS to ensure income and assets are correctly recorded and care recipient is receiving correct assessment.

How do I know if I need to meet with you immediately?
A loved one going into or is already in hospital and it looks like they will need to move into an Aged Care facility post their hospital visit.
You are already planning a move into an Aged Care facility (for you or a loved one) but are finding the process confusing and it’s beginning to get overwhelming.
Your health, or the health of a loved one, has declined and you are not sure where to start but need urgent advice and assistance to get it sorted quickly.

I would like to learn more
We hold a number of small group information sessions throughout the year to support carers facing the increasing Aged Care needs of a family member or loved one. These loved ones are commonly moving into the phase of life where they need strategic advice before they start looking to sell assets, or deciding on a facility or home care option.
Even if you have already taken steps towards one of these options, there is great value in attending one of our sessions to better understand how your plans will fully impact your family members or loved ones.
Alternatively, if you feel the scheduled information sessions are too far away and need more clarity sooner, click ‘I need assistance now’ and connect with one of our Aged Care team.
