Do you Require Aged Care Advocacy?
The Seniors Rights Service offers aged care advocacy to people using in-home and residential aged care services.
If something goes wrong, Seniors Rights Service can guide you in raising your concerns with your service provider.
Seniors Rights Service provides free, confidential support and advocacy for anyone receiving Commonwealth-funded aged care services. It also promotes the rights of older people to aged care service providers.
Aged care advocacy means offering information to people receiving aged care services about their rights and responsibilities and assisting them to uphold their rights.
If you are concerned about any aspect of your aged care or services and you want to speak to someone about this, Seniors Rights Service is available to help you.
An aged care advocate can speak on your behalf, when you feel disadvantaged, in a way that represents your best interests. The advocate will always ask your permission before taking any action.
Seniors Rights Service aged care advocacy services are free, confidential and independent. It is the NSW part of the national Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN), serving aged care recipients across the state.
