We have been assessed now need advice
Hi everybody - we are in our eighties and believed that we would sell our home and move into a retirement village but we have rethought our position and would like to stay in our own home.
We were assessed but now very confused about a "manager" for the plan.
I have done heaps of research and it seems that "managers" consume a good deal of the funds granted which reduces the funds available for services required.
We understand that one can appoint a "manager" but select the people needed to provide the service who are paid by the "Manager".
Is anybody able to suggest a manager who allows self-management and is reasonable in their charges which seem to range from 13 to 50 per cent of the granted funds.
