The Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) has released a free self-advocacy toolkit.
If you are looking into or already using aged care services, or care for someone who is, the toolkit can give you the skills, information, and resources you need to speak up for better aged care.
The toolkit has been funded as a part of the National Aged Care Advocacy Program and is free to use.
What’s in the tool kit?
The self-advocacy toolkit can help you learn what to expect from aged care providers and speak up for yourself or someone you care for.
The toolkit has information on:
- Your aged care rights
- Your aged care options
- Solving common aged care problems
- Protecting yourself from harm
- How to get help with decision making
- Aged care costs.
You can find the self-advocacy toolkit on OPAN’s website.
