Penny Holcombe was a huge assistance to myself and my mother when my father had to be placed urgently into a nursing home. Taking my mother around personally, she allowed her to see a variety of places, and eventually they selected a very suitable nursing home for my father's last months. Penny's understanding of the complex world of nursing home admissions was fantastic, and matching a suitable nursing home to my father's situation was very good, and took much of the hassle away from us. I have passed on Care3 to many of my friends, and always been thanked for introducing them to Penny.

Our family had very specific needs for placing both our parents. Care3 listened and came back quickly with viable choices, and we were very happy with our final choice. Their work significantly assisted us in helping us navigate the confusing world of aged care at a difficult time. Their compassion and genuine interest was a wonderful support.
Danielle Utting has been a superb help to my aged parents (and the entire family) as she has skilfully guided us through the aged care system, turning an angst ridden topic into one that my parents were able to embrace, discuss and make quality decisions about. Upon first meeting my parents, Danielle's understanding of their needs was obvious and her calm, respectful and professional manner immediately put them at ease. With Danielle's help, my parents moved into an aged care property that is ideally suited to them and where they are both extremely happy. I cannot thank Danielle enough and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking assistance with aged care.
Penny provided sound advice and recommendations around suitable levels of care in the home and when it was time to consider residential aged care, Penny's knowledge was invaluable in helping us choose the appropriate level of care at the most suitable facility to meet our mother's particular needs. Penny was available and very approachable at all times which assisted our family through this difficult time in our lives. I would recommend Penny unreservedly to provide timely, practical advice regarding home based and residential aged care.
Penny Holcombe and Care3 have advised our family since 2013 in the transition to Aged care both residential and Nursing home for a member of our family. Penny gave excellent advice and assistance in both moves and was particularly helpful with a long sensitive discussion with one of my siblings about the processes. She was very helpful with final negotiation with placement in the nursing home. Penny and Care3 have our family’s overwhelming endorsement and recommendation.
