Aged Care Home
Jo, was amazing and so supportive with her knowledge and ongoing support for my husband. It was really stressful time for me and my boys. Jo was able to get us advice in Financial planning and show us our cost over 5 years. I know I can always call on Jo for her ongoing support with my husband.
Jo, helped us through the whole process of Aged Care with our Mother from getting us financial advice in which ways were best to pay the RAD, Jo made us appointments at facilities. When we chose the facility that we liked Jo was able to assist us in upgrading room, helped us with reviewing the contract and being with us as the Power of Attorneys to sign the contract. I have called her many times for ongoing support with Mum being in Aged Care. Jo was able to take the confusion of Aged Care and made the process so easy..

Jo helped me place my Mum in care and the way she treated me made me feel like she was part of MY family and was placing her own mother.
Her kindness and understanding that not only is this a traumatic time for me, but her explanations of DAP & RAD etc was so helpful in the decisions I had to make. When Jo could tell I was a little overwhelmed she simply reminded me to "take a breath" and would call me back later to just see if I was okay.
Thank You Jo, I will always be thankful.

My Dad needed residential High care - where to start?
I'm in the financial industry but didn't know about the whole process, Jo made appointments for me to view a few facilities she was so professional and guided me in which options where best for Dad. The supported and knowledge from Jo was exceptional. She negotiate the RAD for us and Dad's room has a lovely view and his own ensuite. Since placing Dad I have referred Jo to many associates & friends that also speak so highly of Jo...
