|How We Help Older People
Transition Navigators is committed to providing you with a caring, supportive and individualised plan that helps you maintain your independence and quality of life. We work with you to find the best accommodation solution to suit your needs, whether that is organising support within your home or transitioning to a new home.
Through our experience and research, we know that if people are actively involved in decision-making they are much more likely to adjust to their new environment.
Often it is helpful to talk to someone outside your family circle about your apprehensions and the decisions you are facing. As skilled listeners, we are always working to find the best solution for you. Our aim is that your experience of transitioning this new phase of your life is positive.
Transition Navigators are able to guide and support you through this process. We will listen, be objective and offer the most appropriate solutions for you through our Life Stage Plan. We can also help you sort out all those things that go with shifting such as; assessments, subsidy eligibility, sale of your home, deciding what you will take with you and much more.

Meeting the needs of older people
|When Robyn was growing up her maternal grandmother lived with the family, alternating between the homes of her two daughters and their families. Now while many of her older family members and those of her friends are leading active lives, their accommodation needs have changed. Robyn founded Transition Navigators because she recognised that many older people and their families needed help navigating the changes to their living arrangements.
Robyn is a trained teacher and counsellor. She has spent many years researching the needs of older people. For her Master of Health Sciences research Robyn asked people about their experiences shifting from their family home. When in 2013 she was offered a scholarship to continue her research with older people, she explored the wellbeing of older adults living in retirement facilities. She is currently completing her PhD.
Robyn and her team are passionate about ensuring older people have a good quality of life by finding the best solution to their accommodation needs.
