For many of us, the goal of aged care is to be able to remain living independently at home or with close family members, for as long as possible.
CCNB is believes that our seniors have earned the right to quality aged care choices, and we exist to assist them to enable them to exercise their choice. CCNB has helped many thousands of older people with care and support for more than 22 years.
It can be a difficult time for older people who are facing change in their living arrangements, as well as for their adult children and other family members. There are complex rules and regulations to cope with and varying expectations of the eventual outcome. Making the wrong decisions can come at a high cost, emotionally and financially.
