I was totally gobsmacked re: aged care until I came across Aged Care Decisions. The support and information I received from Lee-Etta was absolutely phenomenal. I have no idea what I would have done without the input received. Thank you.

Bianca and the team were a fantastic help and comfort at an extremely difficult time for both my elderly parents. They understand what's happening and treated the situation with integrity and respect. I couldn't recommend them more highly, a fantastic free service.

Every person I have spoken to from Aged Care Decisions has been just so wonderful with helping me find a placement for Mum. They are always willing to listen, eager to help and guide in the right direction. I will always be grateful for their patience and understanding. Thankyou girls, for everything, always.

A big thank you to Aged Care Decisions, I dealt with Natalia, who was very caring, loving and understanding, and definitely knew what we all go through when we need help with aged relatives who need to go into aged care accommodation. She gave helpful advice, and was very compassionate.

To date, the people at Aged Care Decision have been extremely helpful in what is a very stressful time. I have no hesitation in recommending the work they do! Lee-Etta was fantastic and I felt a vibe from her that she was invested in helping me to resolve my issue. Great people, great service.

We recently found ourselves in a very difficult and stressful situation whith our 92yr old father. Dad has dementia and until January had been living independently with the help of carers home visits. He then got a virus and spent 2wks in hospital. We were advised by the doctors that dad needed to go into care as his physical and mental health was deteriorating rapidly. We secured a nursing home placement under respite care with the intention of transferring to permanent at the end of respite. Respite would give us time to organise his finances as nursing homes are expensive. We paid all the fees and filled out what we thought was all the paperwork. Dad was going OK then one Thursday we received a call from the home saying dads respite was finishing the next day and they would not take him permanently. By this time we had cleaned out his home and it was on the market. Dad would be homeless in 24hrs. That's when we contacted Rhonda at aged care decisions. She performed a miracle and got dad a placement at Tri Care in a non secured ward. This was a big thing for a nursing home to take a dementia patient into a non secured ward. But they pulled lots of strings and showed that compassion was very important. They would do what they could but no promises for permanency. Both Rhonda and the staff at Tri Care went over and beyond anything we could have ever asked for and gave dad a beautiful room under emergency respite. Dads dementia has made him difficult to handle at times but the staff at Tri Care have been exceptional. We are eternally grateful to Rhonda and all the staff at Tri CareAfter weeks of uncertainty we were lucky enough to be offered a permanent placement for Dad today. Rhonda has talked to me every week to see how dad was going and been in constant contact with Tri Care on our behalf. I cannot thank all of them enough for looking after my dad like he was there own Dad. Thank you Rhonda and all the staff at Tri Care .

From day one I have felt supported by Aged Care Decisions with regular friendly phone calls by my support officer. She always offered me advice and an ear to listen to my worries. Not only did I have one parent needing urgent best High Care for their last few months of life, but the best Low Care for the other to make her feel happy, secure and well looked after, after the loss of her life long partner. Thank you Aged Care Decisions.

We needed to find assistance quickly for respite for mum as well as the potential for longer term care. Aged Care Decisions were very quick to ascertain what were we needed for our mum based on her care requirements and personal likes and needs. The Montessori program offering at the home we selected from several that Aged Care Decisions provided to us to consider was perfect for our mum. Aged Care Decisions allocated us a wonderfully sensitive and caring case manager who listened, was respectful at all times and available to assist well beyond our selection of a nursing home for mum. Highly recommend the service and staff.

Having helped 3 of my relatives with the Aged care process to move into care I found it quite daunting. it seems the more funds you have the harder the process is. I cant believe the frail & infirm can possibly get through the process themselves. The forms are lengthy, overwhelming and ambiguous and the process is drawn out which is quite cruel for all concerned.
05:35 29 Apr 19
Whilst we didn't end up using them, they did consistently follow us up and seemed genuinely concerned about my Mother, her health and how we were progressing with finding her a residential care home.
01:57 16 Apr 19
Very impressed with this service. The case mgr made all contacts to the nursing homes that matched requirements I wished for my elderly parent. They Maintained regular contact & support to me through the process.. We found a nice residential Aged care home as result. Was such a stressful anxious time before we received assistance from this service....A very big thank you..

Very good service, but government approval is so slow for my husband to access home services, so disappointing

The information provided to me by this free service saved me time, stress and $$$. Aged Care Decisions support staff are fabulous in conveying valuable information over the phone. They explain everything thoroughly and effectively and listen compassionately in regards to any situation in trying to assist an aging loved one transition into aged care support & accomodation. Thank you Aged Care Decisions, you offer a very valuable free service!!

After navigating various departments and apparent help lines whilst struggling to get help with my mother, who after seven years with us had started to have extremely erratic behaviour over the last eight months, I emailed Aged Care Decisions for help. The lady I dealt with was Lee-Etta, she was the answer we had been looking for! Not only did she respond quickly, she listened (which was important to me as a career who was suffering career stress) she listened to my Mothers needs which are of the utmost importance. She navigated the system for us and kept me informed the whole time. We have had a fantastic outcome and experience using this service and I can’t Thank Lee-Etta enough for all she has done for us all.

Assessor was very well spoken, polite and very informative. My Mum has trouble understanding and hearing is hard for her. The Assessor that assessed my Mum last week, on the 5 April 2019 found her to have a very clear understanding voice which mum found her easy to understand. She also covered all aspects of what we needed. Highly recommended. Thank You

We have just placed my sister into full time residential care at Bentons Lodge, Mornington. The process was daunting as we had only 3 weeks to get a medical/tests done, aged care assessment, and find a good nursing home. We are from Qld. and as we were in Melbourne, we were not familiar with the system and area. However, with full co-operation from the public advocate, doctor, assessor, and the nursing home, we have been able to leave my sister in excellent care in record time. Everyone was so co-operative and helpful, it was unbelievable. Many thanks to all concerned and we praise God for the wonderful country we live in, that has these services available.

Extremely helpful in finding places near me. These guys did all the hard work. All I had to do was go and inspect each place and make a decision about which one was most suitable for us. I’ve been very happy both with aged care decisions and the facility we ended up choosing. Can’t recommend highly enough.
05:36 11 Apr 19
The service was excellent. The follow up was great. We chose one of the facilities for respite and have now purchased this facility for my Mum. She has settled very nicely. I am very grateful for this service!!!

I was absolutely amazed at how pleasant and efficient my Phone Assistant was. She understood everything I said and needed with confidence and ease. I felt listened to and valued. Her response to give placement details was prompt and followed with the offer to send data by email. Thank youValerie

I appreciated that, even though I did not get to talk to someone, as I was busy at the time, I was sent information that I could pass on to others. I felt that I was valued and that the people in the organization really care and provide the information you need as the whole system is so complicated

Made it so easy to find a home for my parents
