Nobody expects a future that includes aged care

As we age, some people only see lines and grey hair rather than the stories, feelings, beliefs and experiences that make us who we are. There’s a lot we can do right now to connect with what matters to us, no matter how far away future support needs may be.

If you are choosing the right aged care it’s important to find an organisation that will see beyond the surface and get to know who you are – know what gives you purpose, know what you believe and know what connects you to life. Make sure they not only see you but know you.
