| Unit Description
This unit provides students with an analysis of the principles of aged care advice as they relate to the individual or couple in care, as well as wider family considerations. The various funding options are complex, and the advice on which assets to liquidate upon entry are important. The consequential strategies around social security entitlements for homeowners and non-homeowners are critical to understand. Navigating the legislative framework underpinning aged care including the refundable accommodation deposit and daily accommodation payment are critically reviewed. The different levels of care available including in-home care are also addressed as an essential component of the advice mix, particularly for couples with divergent health circumstances.
