Education sessions for older people/family/community audiences
Our Community Education activities are focused on providing information to older people (and their families) living in residential aged care and those accessing home-based aged care services. Our main community education workshop topic is:
- Aged Care Rights: What the Charter of Aged Care Rights means for you
We also provide education sessions for general community audiences with an interest in learning how the aged care system works. Through our Aged Care Navigator service, this includes people not yet involved with the aged care service system but who are considering their access to services in future years.
All sessions for older people/family/community audiences are free of charge.

Free education for staff
We have some capacity, albeit limited, to run free education sessions for staff (residential and home care). These are usually timed to be run on the same day as sessions we run for older people (and their families) living in residential aged care and those accessing home-based aged care services. See contact details above.
Service Provider Fee-For-Service Education
In past years, we have also run fee-for-service education for aged care service providers on topics such as:
- Complaints handling
- Chemical and physical restraint
- Compulsory reporting
These sessions can be tailored to different levels of management or direct service workers, or an organisational wide audience. We welcome enquiries from services about these sessions. See contact details above.
