Aged Care Planning Team
Owner and Director of Aged Care Planning Pty Ltd
With a professional nursing career spanning more than 15 years in the acute care setting and as a case manager and discharge planning clinician, I am a passionate and dedicated health care professional that understands the fears, emotions and expectations of families.
I have significant experience collaborating with aged care facilities, ACAT assessment teams, multidisciplinary teams, palliative care teams and families to achieve the best outcome for your loved one.
My clinical skills and knowledge of the health care system, along with my sense of calm, ‘can do’ attitude and interpersonal skills have enabled me to establish great working relationships with facilities and hospitals, which allows for a smooth and calm transition to aged care, whether that be short term respite or permanent placement.
Aged Care Services
What Our Clients Say
Thank you for your lovely letter. Mum is settling in and the staff at Holly are really lovely, caring people. I am already feeling relieved of the constant worry I had when mum was living alone. The smartest thing I ever did was to engage your services to arrange a placement. Thank you so much for all your kindness and understanding and delivering a good result so quickly.
We are truly grateful to you for all your help with mum. I know this would not have been possible without your assistance. It is certainly a distressing time but you have made it very much easier for all of us and we all thank you.
“I found your understanding gave us the strength we needed, especially during the last few days when things became really tough. You have a gift of wisdom and a wonderful sense of humour and we are very fortunate to have had your guidance.”
Recently Carina assisted us in finding an aged care facility for my father. It was a very stressful time for the family as my mother had passed away 8 weeks prior. From the beginning of the process to the end Carina was extremely efficient and made a difficult decision so much easier. Her knowledge of the health care industry and all the associated paperwork made for a seamless process. Within 10 days of first engaging Carina dad was offered a place in an aged acre facility which met all of our list of requirements. M my father has settled in well and quickly called it home – such a huge relive to the family. I have already recommended Carina to a friend and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a placement consultant.”
James and I wanted to send a little note of huge thanks for not only the brilliant end result that you have arranged for Gerald, but more so for the comforting, counselling, understanding, time and support you have given our family.
