Lighthouse Aged Care

We are ready to support you to make the transition

Apel’s Consultants was formed over 10 years ago as an advocacy service assisting clients with all types of personal property and business solutions for purchasing. Over the last few years, it has evolved to include aged care advocacy, where Paul offers specialist advice and services to seniors and their families via Lighthouse Aged Care Specialists.

Transitioning into higher care can be a difficult time with added stressors, endless questions and a sense of the unknown that can cause clients to feel anxious. We are here to take away that fear and uncertainty and light your way.

We are aged care specialists passionate about helping our clients make well-informed decisions when taking the next step. He makes the experience of a lifestyle change a stress-free and enjoyable one.

In the first meeting, many of our clients are confused and sometimes distressed. Some clients are in a state of paralysis, feeling overwhelmed and like they don’t know enough about the process to make an informed decision about their future. Without someone to guide and educate them along the way, they can feel pressured into making quick decisions that aren’t in their best interest.

We alleviate your anxiety and remove these stressors by taking control of the process, providing a completely transparent and professional experience. We save our clients time and money as their trusted advisors and representatives, with the option for them to be involved as much or as little as they choose.

Committed to your future
