New Way to Stay
Advice and Advocacy for Older Australians
New Way To Stay enables people to turn their goals into reality as they age.
A Fresh New Approach
Support During Covid-19
New Way to Stay is open for business. Face to face contact has resumed and we will continue to offer clients the option of a meeting via video conferencing. Here is what we are doing.
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
• 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.
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
