Which Non-Health Professional Services Can AgeSmart Coordinate?
Older individuals living at home often need assistance with various activities, such as cooking, cleaning, bathing, and dressing. But there are also many other types of help often needed that aren’t related to personal care. These include:
- Legal advice: Legal services can help you prepare wills and powers of attorney and provide advice on various legal issues such as the management of your finances and assets.
- Wills: Having an up-to-date will in place can prevent your loved ones from experiencing unnecessary stress, disputes, and expenses.
- Powers of attorney: Powers of attorney (medical, financial, or general) help ensure that your affairs are managed the way you want them to be.
- Accounting and financial planning: Accountants and financial planners can provide information and advice on a range of financial topics as well as work together to help you reach your financial goals.
- Advanced care planning: This service involves making plans for your future medical care should you become unable to make decisions for yourself later. This way, your carers can make decisions for you knowing that they are honouring your wishes.
- Aged care assessment services: This service helps older adults and their carers identify and locate the types of services and care that most effectively meet their needs.
- Aged care bed brokers: If you do need to move into an aged care facility for long-term care or even just a temporary respite stay, an aged care bed broker can help you locate a facility that meets your needs.
