    Pros:

    Helpful staff and great information that they can post to you for FREE.

    Cons:

    They do what they can to try and help get you the information, but you still need to do your own research to try and find a suitable place with availability.

    Overall:

    I found them to be great in helping you figure out the clear steps you need to take to go down the aged care route. There are alot of forms that you need to fill out and things to consider but the Carelink team really does well to help you by posting you out a pack of information, forms and checklists for FREE.

    Thanks Carelink team - don't know how I would've done it without you!
