BRUCE BAYNES - Dip FP, Accredited Aged Care Adviser
Director, Aged Care Specialist

Aged care advice is nothing short of a passion for Bruce.  When his own family faced the struggles of his father entering aged care, Bruce knew there was a need for more help to be available to others facing the daunting financial aspects of aged care. We love seeing his excitement when he comes up with a particularly great solution for clients and he is passionate when advocating for our clients’ best interests. 

With over twenty years of experience in providing financial advice, our clients often comment on the empathy and understanding offered by Bruce in addition to his excellent skills in aged care funding.

What Are People Saying?

  • Thanks to you and all the team there at Sage Care Advice. We are so thankful that we were referred to you guys and for the great help that you have been to us.

  • "With elderly parents living on their own the thought of something going wrong was always in the back of my mind. When this did happen and both parents needed full time care, what to do and where to start was overwhelming. The staff at Sage Care Advice came into my life and gave me not only the physical and financial support with the never ending paper work and phone calls but also the emotional support to see a light at the end of the tunnel for my parents to gain the quality care they needed and deserved. I cannot thank Bruce and his team enough and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sage to any family needing this assistance and support."
