How we help you remain at home as you age.

Your choice to age at home should be seamless and hassle-free. Unfortunately, too many people face a time-sapping headache of bureaucratic dead ends and misinformation. It is like being stuck in a cobweb! You may be at the start of your journey, or perhaps you have started and given up as it is too difficult and time-consuming.

Don’t worry; you’re not alone

Perhaps you are unsure what home care is, what support is available, how to access this support, how much it costs, or how to choose a suitable service provider.

Like many people, you may not even know where to start.

At Choices to Age at Home, we help older Australians and their families. Whether you need help for yourself, your Mum or Dad or someone else you represent,  we are experts in providing independent advice to enable you to make the most appropriate decisions both now and for the future.  Our bespoke service focusses solely on providing the information, advice, and support Australians need to stay in their own home as they get older.

Further, if you or your loved ones are interested in accessing residential aged care, we can also provide independent advice and information on the best steps to take.

Independent tailored solutions


  • Tiered support levels of support options enable you to choose the most appropriate service to suit your needs.
  • We have no affiliations with Government departments or service providers. That means you can trust us because we are 100% independent, as is our advice.
  • No matter your level of engagement with us, we do not make decisions on your behalf. We are here to help, but you will always be the decision-maker.

Expert home care advice Australia wide

We show you what to do and where to get the help you need to continue living in your own home.

Our coast-to-coast service is designed to support older Australians no matter where they are. With an extensive array of tailored digital meeting solutions and online resources, we guide you on what to do and the steps you need to take, all from the comfort of your home. We can even include overseas family members in the process so that everyone has a full picture of what’s happening. At Choices to Age at Home, we know how to navigate the aged care bureaucracy and its abundance of acronyms such as RAS, ACAT, CHSP, HCP and the list goes on! We can show you how to access government support or explore private options and how to get help with everything from shopping to clinical care. Whether it’s meals, maintenance, or mobility, many older Australians are entitled to assistance in their own homes. The problem is they just don’t know how to make it happen. We can show you how.

Independent aged care experts

Choices to Age at Home was started by one of Australia’s leading aged-care experts, Julia McCarthy. Having worked as an Executive in the sector on a national basis, Julia wanted to develop a service that provided older people and their families with accurate, independent, easily understood advice in order to make appropriate individual decisions for themselves or their loved ones. We have helped hundreds of individuals and families achieve their goals.

“An increasing number of Australians want to stay at home as they get older. At Choices to Age at Home, we understand every person’s circumstances can be different.

We provide independent care advice through experienced expert consultants who understand what it takes to deliver successful outcomes for older Australians to achieve their goals.

I’m passionate about helping people find the support they need to live at home with dignity and support for as long as possible. When it comes to ageing at home, one thing is always true: Care Matters, People Matter.”

Australia-wide service. Engage our consultants from the comfort of your home.

“Choices to Age at Home cut through the bureaucratic paperwork, explaining everything simply and sorting out mum’s homecare situation. With our permission, Julia picked up the phone, chatted to someone for about 10 minutes and hung up saying: ‘Done! It’s all sorted’. From that day on, the process for mum was simple and painless.”


“Choices to Age at Home offers a genuinely caring service which lifted our burden and the burden of our loved ones. Julia helped our family navigate a complex and, at times frustrating aged care system. She provided the exact advice we needed at precisely the right time on respite, home help and aged care.”


My sister, brother and I were full-time carers for mum for 5 years until it was time to seek assistance. With an exceptional professional knowledge of the aged care sector, Choices to Age at Home presented us with individually tailored solutions based entirely on our needs at the time. Now we have peace of mind, knowing our 95-year-old Mum’s future aged care needs are fulfilled. 


“Dear Julia, Our sincerest thanks to you for all of your help.

Your assistance has provided so much comfort to us, knowing that you are here to guide us through these difficult times.
