No one really wants to grow old however it cannot be helped. Watching your partner or a parent deteriorate to the point that outside help is needed would have to be high on the list of one of life’s most stressful events.
The guilt people have is incredible. I have personally witnessed people very close to me and many of our clients suffer dreadfully trying to cope with leaving their partner or parent at an aged care facility.
Not only an emotional time but a financially stressful time due to the rules changing in a huge way from July 2014. No longer is it a simple bond and a basic daily fee.
It has become very complex and a user pays system for those who are using the aged care facility.
