Description


ARE YOU WONDERING HOW TO SUPPORT YOUR LOVED ONES AS THEY AGE?

ARE YOU UNSURE WHERE TO GO OR HOW TO START?

ARE YOU CONFUSED BY MY AGED CARE, THE DIFFERENT PROGRAMS OF SUPPORT AND WHAT IT ALL MEANS?

Australia's aged-care system is complex and confusing. Multiple assessments, fragmented service provision, conflicting advice, and delayed access to assistance exhaust people who just want to support older loved ones at home.

Author Coral Wilkinson is an aged-care navigator, a human compass for Australia's aged-care system who uses her professional knowledge and personal experience of supporting her parents at home to help you work out what assistance your older loved one needs and how to access the right government programs to support them at home.

My Parents Are Ageing, What The Heck Do I Do? will:

  • Show you how to have a compassionate discussion with your loved one about accepting support
  • Prepare you for that important first contact with My Aged Care
  • Explain the different assessment teams and how to prepare for an assessment
  • Show you how to choose a Home Care Package provider
  • Teach you how to access increased support as your loved one's health declines
  • Prepare you for the coming aged-care reforms regarding in-home care

This book will put you on the right path to finding, navigating and understanding the complex world of aged-care services.
