Event description


This is about Step 1.3 on the My Aged Care Journey - "Financial and Legal Preparedness".

Navigating aged care can be tricky. People are often unaware of how to begin their journey when entering aged care, and finding information on how to change/update services is not always easy.

As part of the Aged Care System Navigator trials, OPAN is hosting a series of webinars to give a practical introduction on how to enter aged care, including how to contact My Aged Care, arrange an assessment and choose services appropriate to your living situation.

This chapter of the webinar series will discuss "Financial and Legal Preparedness". Joining Maree on the panel will be Seniors Rights Service solicitor Melissa Chaperlin. Together they will explore areas such as:

  • The importance of having your financial and legal affairs in order
  • What is a Power of Attorney?
  • What is the difference between a Power of Attorney and an Enduring Power of Attorney?
  • Wills
  • Preparing for a financial assessment
  • Who can help?

This webinar will run from 12pm - 12:30pm AEST. The panellists will be taking questions from the online audience throughout.
