The reality of entering an aged care home presents many emotional challenges for both the prospective resident and their family.
This is made no easier as the family embarks on dealing with the aged care system, from Centrelink to managing their loved one’s money and assets. Most find this a very confusing process.
Questions arise as to what fees are payable, how much needs to be paid, what is a RAD and a DAP, what happens to the house, the pension etc.
