Join us on Tuesday, 12 April 2022 at 11:30 AM (AEST) and hear from our panel on how aged care advocacy supports you to get the most out of you aged care services.
In this webinar we will look at the how the Older Persons Advocacy Network can provide the advocacy help and support you may need, via its nine state and territory member organisations. We’ll show examples of how they have helped thousands of people work through issues with their Australian Government-funded aged care services.
We’ll also look at how an aged care advocate can help you understand and exercise your aged care rights, seek aged care services that suit your needs and find solutions to issues you may be experiencing with your aged care provider.
We will cover:
What is aged care advocacy and how can it help you maintain control and independence
The role of an advocate in helping to protect your rights
Understanding your rights when seeking or receiving aged care services
How to engage advocacy support and common presenting issues.
