Family looking after family has been happening for generations, but what can seem like a simple solution – parents living safely with children close by if help is needed involves a range of legal and financial issues.
This comprehensive workshop examines the different forms of granny flat arrangements, legal considerations, financial impacts including pension entitlements, cost of care, rent assistance and other benefits and uses case studies to examine strategies financial advisers can consider.
When most people hear the words “aged care” they think of an aged care facility but the reality is that the majority of people receiving aged care do so in their own home. Currently there are around 1 million people in Australia who receive aged care services and around 80% receive that care in their own homes. This workshop examines the different care services available to people outside residential aged care, together with the different fees and charges and means testing arrangements applicable to the various programs. This is a case study based, interactive workshop for people wanting to understand the options and financial arrangements for accessing Home Care.
