Things You Need To Know About Aged Care

An article in the Sydney Morning Herald by Rachel Lane of Aged Care Gurus sets out some very important distinctions between an Aged Care facility and a Retirement Village.

In the article Rachel Lane states:-

"The first lesson in this story is that retirement villages and aged care facilities are not the same thing. Retirement villages operate under completely separate, state-based rules, while aged care facilities operate under federal legislation. The rules governing their legal and financial arrangements are as different as apples and oranges.

Just because you are a resident of a co-located village doesn’t necessarily give you priority or make you the “next cab off the rank. "
