It's always hard to see a family member's lifestyle deteriorate, especially if they have been in the family home for decades and can no longer look after themselves the way they did in the past. It's even harder not knowing where to turn, dealing with all the emotions, the differing family wants and the financial costs of any transition that may occur. Are they ready for aged care or is that still a little extreme? Sometimes you need to get the right person on your side to help you make the decision, and today, we are going to help show how you can make that decision easy.
With 16 years of first hand experience as a registered nurse in the aged care sector, Naomi Anderson is the Managing Director of Aged Care Ready - A fiercely independent company that assists elderly clients and their families navigate their aged care journey. Passionate about helping families make educated decisions for their elderly loved ones, Naomi and her team are often described as buyer's advocates for aged care.
