New Way to Stay is a new generation consultancy business for seniors that provides a rare and streamlined approach to later-life planning and goal implementation.

In collaboration with you, based on your own situation, we design effective strategies that include advice, risk analysis and a personalised vetting and referral service to solution providers for any of the services you need.

Then, once you are on your way towards implementing solutions, we offer ongoing support and advocacy for you and your family, for as long as it takes, or you choose to have us by your side.

Rather than spend hours online, researching and calling around for help, with just one phone call to New Way to Stay you will be on your way to obtaining an effective gateway that will not only focus on you as an individual but will give you access to a late-life plan that will save you stress, time, money and the common burden of risk that is associated with making hasty uninformed decisions in a later-life crisis.

The New Way to Stay gateway includes the following and more:

• Retirement living and downsizing

• Legal advice

• Financial Advice

• Home care – private and package support

• Clinical guidance

• Residential care placement and advice

• Home modification and safety

• Social and lifestyle support

• Aged care government benefit advice

• Counselling and psychological support

• Education/seminars

• Employee benefit packages


No matter what you need, whether it be confidential research, advice, risk analysis, ongoing support and implementation, or vetting of service providers and referrals, you will receive a service that is confidential, unique, varied, flexible and streamlined.

We offer a total project management service to help clients fulfil their aged care goals. We set them up successfully and safely in the environment of their choosing ensuring needs are met clinically, practically, economically and emotionally.

Client Focused

We introduce our clients to well researched experts across a broad range of services.

We work with our clients to establish their goals and objectives through the transition in ageing. We research the options available to them then help them map out solutions. Once agreed we implement the solutions via a network of professional service providers and advisors who we have vetted to ensure high standards are maintained at all times

Dawn (Mona Vale, NSW)

Empowerment to remain at home has never felt so possible.

Susan (Narrabeen, NSW)

I have lost both my parents who needed care and found this information evening tackled real issues that no other organisation has.


My work colleague who came along with me to New Way To Stay's wonderful seminar in July managed to received $10,000 towards a much-needed inclinator for her father, thanks to the information she received from your community aid expert speaker. They are both so thrilled. Thank you for putting on such an informative and empowering evening.

Lisa (Collaroy, NSW)

The help that Louise and Les offered my parents was invaluable - to them, and also to us, as a family. They took the stress out of our relationships, the time pressures from me, and a real weight was lifted from all our shoulders.
