Services Overview

Helping you make smart decisions about aged care funding.

 

Our Aged Care Specialist, Bruce, has a parent in residential aged care. We don’t only know the numbers, we also understand what you are going through. Organising residential aged care for a loved one can be an emotionally draining experience and understanding the financial side of aged care can seem overwhelming on top of all of this.

What many people do not know is this: how you pay for aged care can have a huge impact on age pension / DVA entitlements, cash flow and assets. Your method of payment can even affect the fees themselves! We are the Sunshine Coast’s aged care funding experts. At Sage Care Advice, we are dedicated to helping our clients navigate this maze and make smart decisions about aged care funding with the information and advice that you need. We will help you by ensuring you have a good understanding of your options for paying for care and we will.
