Rachel is Australia’s Aged Care Guru. She writes regular columns on retirement living and aged care for the Sydney Morning Herald, Melbourne’s Age and the Brisbane Times. She regularly speaks on TV and Radio. She has co-authored a number of books, including the Best Seller Aged Care, Who Cares? and her new book, Downsizing Made Simple.
Rachel explains the financial aspects of retirement living and aged care in ways that are engaging and informative. She breaks down complex financial arrangements into plain english, empowering people to understand the choices they have available to them.
It was practical, easy to understand, very relevant and highly thought provoking. Retirement Living and Aged Care are some of the hottest topics in the market now, and will be for years to come. Having an expert in the field share such important information and educate our advisers is business critical for financial planners.
More importantly, providing love and support to clients going through such a sensitive and emotional period of their lives is what professional advice is all about.
Thank you, Rachel - not only was your presentation excellent but more importantly the service and support Aged Care Gurus provide to advisers is very valuable and much appreciated.
Rachel has both professional and personal experience navigating retirement living and aged care. Both as a specialist financial adviser and helping her grandmother – affectionately known as “Ducky”, the source of many stories – to navigate her way through a retirement village, a home care package, and a few respite stays in aged care.
We have found her to always have the financial outcomes of the client in mind, and take into account the lifestyle and health outcomes that make AgedCare such a tricky issue for families.
We have had Rachel present to Financial Advisers and consumers, and she has always tailored the information to the audience.
