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.

We create personalised plans that navigate the complex aged care system. This includes providing direct access to our partner network which covers a whole spectrum of services, including Home Care, Financial Advice, Legal, Home Safety, Medical, and more.

On our client’s direction, we prepare a thorough report specifically tailored to each individual case. The report is explained in-person and includes risks, advantages and recommendations. Once a plan is chosen, we stay and manage the process. Our clients maintain a solid position for achieving their goals and living in the place of their choice.

We are Aged Care Consultants and Advocates for:

• Home care domestic and nursing

• Therapeutic services

• Rehabilitation

•Legal services

• Financial services

• Home modification design and build

• Specialist equipment – aged care and disability

• Government assistance

• Residential care placement

• Retirement living

• Employee assistance

• Psychologists and family support service

• Decluttering and more…

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 referral partners and clients alike to ensure our clients’ needs are met clinically, practically, economically and emotionally.

We work strictly on a case-by-case basis which stems from a professionally created tailored plan focused entirely on helping our clients achieve their goals, simply, realistically and transparently.

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.
