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?

  • "Our family has been working with Bruce, Katie and the Team from Sage Care Advice for sometime now to ensure that our mother was comfortable and financially secure in Residential Aged Care. Unfortunately our beautiful mum Joy passed away on Easter Sunday in the middle of COVID 2020, and the Sage Care Advice team have gone above and beyond with their support and assistance during this difficult time. We are truly grateful for the friendly professional service that the team has always provided us over the years, and we cannot recommend highly enough."
