Navigating My Aged Care// Saturday 8 August
4:30pm via Zoom
My Aged Care is a Federal Government program providing support and services to people over 65 years of age. This workshop will focus on:
- the practical issues of accessing and dealing with the aged care system
- the older person’s and family’s emotional journeys – as individuals and as a collective
- making this journey when there is possibly conflict, different agendas and perspectives
- Can there be a “win/win” situation?
