You may be in a situation where both of your parents require aged care at the same time. Of course, most people would prefer to keep their parents together in a shared bedroom at the same aged care home.
Here are some tips for keeping your parents together in aged care:
Aged care homes with Double Rooms
Residential aged care homes offer a range of accommodation options, including double rooms. This may be a room with two twin beds or a single double bed. If you find an appropriate aged care home with a double room with two twin beds, then you may be able to ask them if they could be replaced with a double bed. This may be possible depending on the home.
Aged Care Placement Consultants
An aged care placement consultant is able to help you find aged care accommodation for you needs. An aged care placement consultant will know what facilities have double or share room in the area and have faced the task of keeping spouses together before.
Aged care placement consultants operate on a fee for service basis or an hourly rate, depending on the organisation.
