Seniors Rights Service aged care advocates and solicitors travel across NSW to hold information sessions for aged care homes, retirement villages and community groups. These sessions aim to raise awareness about the rights of - and common concerns among - older people living in aged accommodation or receiving in-home care.
The sessions are offered to service providers and service users and their relatives and carers, as well as in-home aged care service providers, seniors groups, professional groups and others.
Popular topics are:
- Aged care advocacy
- Retirement village living
- Legal issues affecting older people
- Seniors Rights Service - who we are and what we do
- Supporting diversity
Seniors Rights Service also delivers online information sessions via Skype and webinars.
