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?

  • "You will never know how much I have appreciated all that you have helped us with. I don’t really think I could have done it without you, Bruce and Haylee. I have also recommended you to other friends of mine. You guys truly are amazing. Thank you.”
    Cayleen, Mapleton QLD
  • "From the very first phone call to the team, I was impressed by the professionalism and knowledge of the aged care industry that was displayed. When I met Bruce or our initial face to face meeting, we as a family had already decided that we wanted Bruce and his team to handle all the affairs around getting our Mum into the Aged Care facility of our choice. An engagement of a few months that we felt represented good value for money. In that hour meeting, Bruce and his team did work for us, that my family and I would have struggled with for weeks. I left that meeting feeling that we were in the best of hands. Unfortunately, the following Monday, our Mum passed away. I can’t speak loudly or long enough on the impact that his made to my family at a time of grieving. Thank you Bruce and team, not only do you have unique specialised advice, but you showed and demonstrated to me that you have compassion as well."
    John, Moggill QLD
