About Rachel Lane

Rachel Lane was a financial adviser who struck out on her own because she wanted to give older Australians better advice than they could receive from the mainstream money brands. As the founder of Aged Care Gurus, Rachel oversees an Australia-wide network of financial advisers who are committed to putting clients first with quality advice on all the financial aspects of downsizing, retirement living, home care and aged care. An independent thinker who is unaffiliated with any product provider, Rachel is regularly sought by government and peak bodies as a consultant, speaker and writer on issues in the sector, she holds a Masters in Financial Planning and, with Noel Whittaker, is the author of Aged Care, Who Cares? and The Retirement Living Handbook. Rachel and Noel have just published a third book, Downsizing Made Simple, that provides information and exercises designed to help 60-pluses make the right property decision for their lifestyle and budget. You can purchase a copy of Downsizing Made Simple here. Rachel says the close relationship she had with her own grandmother growing up is what drives her to push for the best deal for all older Australians.
