Aged care providers told to sit down for a cuppa


Community Care experts are gathering in Sydney this week for a national conference that will look at community care, ageing, disability, mental health and intellectual disability.It’s timely, given that a report out today expresses concern about the level of care services available, and the social cost, borne mostly by women, of caring for frail aged or disabled relatives. Media Liaison person, Megan Stoyles, says the 1000 conference delegates are likely to bring similar concerns about funidng and beuracracy. Gnarra Aboriginal Home and Community Care’s June Reimer will address the conference on making mainstream services more responsive to Aboriginal People. The Ngambaga Bindarry Girrwaa service’s Anthony Gillen says he makes it a priority to sit down with the elders and seek their guidance and feedback about the direction the service should take.
