Fear of the unknown has been stopping human beings in their tracks for millennia. Sadly, this same fear is keeping older Australians from accessing Aged Care services that they sometimes desperately need. And it’s not just the fear of aging.
Many older people, our parents and grandparents, are worried about losing their independence. They’re worried about being put into an aged care facility, far from family and friends. They’re also worried about losing their beloved family home.
As an advocate for keeping you well at home for longer, I hope to dispel some common myths around Aged Care and help you understand what happens next.
