About Danielle Robertson

Danielle Robertson was CEO of DIAL-AN-ANGEL®, Australia's only national group specialising in Home and Family care and support services for all types of care.
After almost 29 years in the family business (17 years working in the business and 12 years at the helm of DIAL-AN-ANGEL), after a transition period, Danielle exited the business when it was acquired by Nextt Health in September 2014. Danielle’s areas of expertise include health care, aged care, disability care, retirement living, childcare, executive mentoring, family business, and medico legal costing, assessments and court expertise. After navigating DIAL-AN-ANGEL through accreditation for NDIS and Consumer Directed Care (CDC) she has a broad and comprehensive understanding of the industry and the relevant, and often complicated, Government legislation associated with it. Having worked for the largest provider of in-home care services in Australia, she has significant hands-on experience managing the day to day operations as well as the strategic board level negotiations. Danielle is offering her 34+ years extensive experience to the care industry, offering assistance to quality care service providers, financial advisors, accountants, lawyers and private clients. Navigating the Aged Care system to obtain the right care solutions and outcome for the client is Danielle’s main driver.
