When your need for care escalates, it is a good idea to be sure of your rights. Older Persons Advocacy Network is a national voice that advocates for older men and women. OPAN is made up of nine states and territory services. The organisations work closely together to provide nationally consistent advocacy, information and education all over Australia.
It supports consumers and potential consumers of Commonwealth funded aged care to understand and exercise their rights.
OPAN is creating digital communication channels, like television and videos in aged care facilities. The program is to ensure the rights of older people continue to be linked to aged care reforms.
Free calls are available on 1800 700 700 between 9.30am and 4.30pm weekdays. You might also check it out on this link http://www.opan.com.au/
