Retirement Communities just like the people who live there come in all different shapes and sizes and appeal to a range of different lifestyles – for the fit and active retiree to those who are seeking an alternative to residential aged care, and everything in between. They also encompass a range of different legal and financial arrangements from one to another and even within the same village.
This facilitator lead, case study based workshop examines the varying rules and regulations of retirement communities, the legal considerations and the financial impacts including pension entitlements and rent assistance as well as the cost and ability to access care now and in the future.
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.
