Free event: Your rights in aged care
Tuesday, 25 June 2019 | 9:30am – 11:30am
Understanding the Charter of Aged Care Rights and how it will empower and protect you.
The Australian Government is introducing a new and simpler Charter of Aged Care Rights. The Charter will make it easier for you, as an aged care consumer (an older person receiving aged care services) to understand what you can expect from an aged care service provider. From 1 July 2019, service providers are required to sign the Charter, assist you to understand it and give you the option of signing it too.
To understand what the Charter means for you, why having rights is important, how to claim your rights in a confident manner, your responsibilities, and where to go for help, please join Older Persons Advocacy Network and ARAS at a FREE event.
The purpose of this event is to educate attendees about the new Charter of Aged Care Rights. By attending this event attendees will learn:
- Why having rights is important
- What the new Charter means for you
- What signing the Charter means
- How to claim your rights in a confident manner
- The importance of consumer responsibilities
- Where to go for help and assistance
Content will be delivered in 1.5 hours, however, please allow 2 hours in total for questions, discussion, and a light morning tea.
