Covering the costs of Residential Aged Care

To work out the amount of your fees and how to pay them you will need to evaluate a range of financial strategies and choices. Each strategy has the potential to change your assessable assets and income. which in turn can affect your aged care fees and your age pension entitlements. It is most important to ensure you create enough cashflow and protect your estate.

Some important questions you need to answer are:

  • What will you do with your former home?
  • How will you pay for accommodation?
  • Can you create cashflow to cover your daily costs?
