It’s important to plan ahead for the type of care we want as we age.
Take time to start the conversation
If you don't need aged care yet, it's a good idea to research how aged care works so you are prepared if your needs change suddenly.
Talking about your own, or a family member's, aged care can be hard, but starting the conversation will make the process easier for you and your family.
One of the more common reasons for going into residential aged care is that you don’t have to worry about the day to day upkeep of your home.
But sometimes, just being with people and having someone to say good morning to each day is just as important.
We all need someone to care about us and to keep away the loneliness when our relatives live far away or have passed on.
Being healthy, physically active and socially engaged has many benefits, especially as you grow older, but as in any stage in life, whether you are three and going through tantrums, or 93 and can’t quite face having to cook your meals and make your bed on those shaky pins, there comes a time when a change is necessary.
