We are delighted to announce that two members from the Older Persons Advocacy Network’s National Older Persons Reference Group – Val Fell and Danijela Hlis have been chosen to represent older people on the Aged Care Council of Elders. Read our media release in full.
Val and Danijela are amongst a select group of older people representing diverse and broad range of lived experience covering
“Older people have been telling us for a long time that there should be ‘nothing about us without us’ and the Council of Elders is a good step along this journey which will help inform aged care reform from their perspective.” “Both Val and Danijela bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the Council, and I know they will bring the voice of older Australians to the table.” Craig Gear, CEO.
We would like to congratulate all members for being chosen and we look forward to their contributions towards the transformation of aged care for themselves and the people they care for.
