A free information forum supporting seniors make informed choices
On Tuesday 6 June independent homecare specialist Care Connect is hosting a free forum for seniors wanting to stay living at home.
Paul Ostrowski, Chief Executive Officer, Care Connect says “We have developed this forum to help people understand the aged care system and how to access the support they need.
“In our 20 years we have found the biggest barrier that stops people accessing support is wading through the sheer amount of information out there. It can be daunting and some people either give up or don’t access the full range of services they are entitled to.
“We have designed this forum to make it easy for people to understand government funding (different levels, eligibility and how to access it), identify common financial traps and choose the right provider to meet their needs. In particular, we’ll be focusing on the new world of Home Care Packages.
“We know that when people have the right information at the right time (ahead of a crisis) they make good decisions and are more likely to continue living at home.”
