Price Aged Care Services

Assisted Living

As life expectancy increases, more older Australians are looking for options such as Residential Aged Care or Home Care.

We can help you with specific Aged Care Services:
Assistance with your ACAT Assessment if required, Assistance with finding a placement in an Aged Care Facility, preparing the Income & Assets Assessment for submission to Services Australia, plus advice on the funding of your Aged Care needs.

We offer you a flat fee which covers all our services regardless of the time taken to complete your placement. Alternately we can offer an hourly rate if you only require limited assistance.

Understanding the rules with Aged Care is the first step in successfully managing this complicated process.

Centrelink Aged Pension

We understand that everyone’s situation is different, and we provide the assistance to help you to achieve the correct Age Pension entitlement.

We often find Age Pension recipients that are receiving lower pensions because Centrelink has out of date information on their true income and asset position.

The solution is to appoint Price Financial Intelligence to review your Income and Assets to ensure that your Age Pension is 100% correct based on your circumstances.

We can also advise you on how you can increase your Age Pension legally by using assets that have a lower impact on your means tested assessment.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning gives you the opportunity to organise your affairs to cover events like losing your capacity to manage your own affairs, managing your medical needs, where you will live and most importantly your Will.

We work with Solicitors that will come to you if required to prepare you Will, Enduring Power of Attorney, Enduring Guardianship and/or an Aged Care Directive if required.

Pre-Paid Funerals

We will assist you in arranging a Pre-Paid Funeral as we have many contacts with Funeral Homes where costs can range from $7,000 to $12,000 depending on the services to be provided.

Advantages of Pre-Paid Funerals?

Pre-Paid Funerals are an exempt asset for Centrelink purposes.

When you pass away, they will relieve your family from the stress of arranging your funeral and the associated legal requirements involved.

Having a pre-paid means, your family does not need to find the money to pay for your funeral as your assets are frozen when you pass away.
It is true that your bank may release money from your bank account to pay for your funeral, however this only works if you have enough money in your account to fund it.
