Older Persons Advocacy Network organisations offer free, independent and confidential services that focus on supporting older people and their representatives to raise and address issues relating to accessing and interacting with Commonwealth funded aged care services. This includes services offered under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), Home Care Packages (HCP) and residential aged care. OPAN can also assist in some cases of elder abuse.
The case studies below provide some examples of the types of issues advocates have helped clients to resolve.
