This book is intended to be a one-stop shop. A how-to guide to the process of accessing, moving into and maximising Mum's stay in an aged-care home. The financial advice comes from a qualified specialist and the practical processes have been enhanced by the experiences of aged-care experts. The book does not cover any aspect of aged care that is not residential. We have written this book for you, the carer and/or the resident. The book has been designed for you to dip in and out of as the need arises, to guide you through the process step by step. As with any specialist field, there are many abbreviations that are specific to the aged-care world and there is a Glossary of these terms at the end of the book. The anecdotal stories are all true but some names have been changed to protect individual privacy.
This 2011 edition is enhanced by greater clarity especially in the financial sections where there are more stories to better illustrate the processes. At the time of writing, the Australian government's Productivity Commission investigation into health care continues and changes in the aged care sector are likely to result after its findings are published in June 2011.
