We started working with McEwen Investment Services in late 2017 to assist with our uncle’s financial and investment requirements as he transitioned into Aged Care. From the outset Rob was extremely helpful in preparing a comprehensive strategy paper estimating our uncle’s aged care costs and forecast cashflows. We have also now engaged Rob to administer our uncle’s investment portfolio to ensure his ongoing aged care costs are comfortably met and his capital is protected whilst attracting reasonable returns.
Rob’s integrity, professionalism and reliability make McEwen Investment Services an easy choice when deciding on Aged Care planning and Investment advice.
It is a pleasure working with Rob and his team and we would not hesitate in recommending McEwen Investment Services.
Royal Commissions’s Interim Report affirms a broken aged care system and promises to “chart a new direction for the sector, bringing a clear sense of purpose and of quality, and a renewed focus on compassion and kindness”.
More Australians than ever before are utilising a government-subsidised Home Care Package in order to stay in their own home for longer as they age. Here, we share some of our key learnings to help you get the most out of your HCP.
When contemplating the transition to permanent aged care, the first question which springs to mind for most people is “How much will it cost?”
Our services include:
⊲ Explaining the different fee options for aged care services
⊲ Preparing a detailed analysis of your spouse or parent’s financial position
⊲ Providing a strategy that outlines the best options for your family member
⊲ Determining the best way to structure your finances to maximise entitlements
⊲ Assistance with Centrelink paperwork
⊲ Arranging Powers of Attorney

Every individual’s circumstances are different. Our approach is bespoke, with advice that is customised for your family member.
We help you understand your spouse or parent’s current financial position and then create an aged care roadmap to guide you – so there are no financial surprises.
We can offer you certainty and direction to demystify the aged care maze. Moving your parent or spouse into aged care can be immensely time consuming.
There are so many organisational, legal and financial details to arrange. Seeking specialist advice can reduce the strain and give you more time to take care of things at home, where you’re needed most.
“ I needed help to understand the best way to fund my wife’s move into aged care. Rob clearly and simply explained how each funding option works.
The cash flow forecasts helped me to decide upon the best way to pay for accommodation and care.
I now have peace of mind knowing what we can afford and how we will pay for it.”
