Description


Suitable for Aboriginal people, carers and organisations who work with Aboriginal communities to provide aged care services.

This information session will cover:

- What is My Aged Care?

- How does it work?

- What is the assessment process?

- What services are available?

- What organisations provide culturally sensitive aged care services in my area?

- Your questions and issues answered

There will also be an opportunity on the day to register with My Aged Care for a home support assessment.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.

Key Presenter: Claire Bishop - Manager of NSW Health - Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District Regional Assessment Service on behalf of My Aged Care.

While Claire originally trained as a nurse, she has spent the past 25 years in the community aged care services sector. Undertaking a variety of roles, Claire has established, managed and developed a range of services that support older people to continue to live in their homes. During this time Claire has worked for State Government, Local Government and non-government organisations across the Illawarra and Southern regions. Several roles provided a focus of assessment reform aimed at improving systems and processes for clients navigating the community care system.
