What We Do
Accredited Aged Care Professionals assisting families to navigate the maze of Aged Care with compassion.
We help remove the tension involved in making informed decisions about your aged care choices. Accessing care for older Australians can be tricky with baffling jargon and a lot of paperwork. We make it easy for you to understand your options; whether that’s staying at home longer with assistance or transitioning into to a residential aged care facility. Our aim is to ‘hold your hand’ through this journey and take the stress of your shoulders.
We want to ensure that elderly Australians are taken care of in a dignified manner and that their families are comfortable with the choices made.
- Remain at home longer – We assist you in remaining independent, safe and cared for at home as long as possible
- Find the right accommodation option for you – If you need to sell your home, downsize or move into an assisted living facility or retirement village, we help with the process from start to finish
- Help when you need it – sometimes a crisis occurs, you’ve had a fall, have been in hospital or are unable to return home, our team can help you work out the best course of action
- Make Aged Care understandable – the jargon involved in sorting through the aged care maze can be hard to get through, turn to TACS to help with breaking it all down
