Aged and Disability Care Specialist Short Course

With Australia's ageing population, the need for competent and specialised financial planning for senior citizens has never been greater. It is expected that the number of Australian's aged 65 and above will increase from around 2.5 million (2002) to 6.2 million in 2042*.

Mentor Education's Aged and Disability Care Specialist short course explores key drivers of aged care financial advice in Australia. Students will examine asset planning with a variety of time frames and life conditions. A significant component of the unit deals with the concepts of behavioural investment through an examination of emotional investing, a significant factor in financial planning for older clients.
