Zoom Meeting for Aged Care Residents and Families in Victoria

Elder Rights Advocacy and the Older Persons Advocacy Network invite older people living in residential aged care in Victoria and their families to a Zoom meeting to ask questions about the latest COVID-19 outbreak.

This meeting will allow you to ask questions you may have about the COVID-19 outbreak and how it affects you and your older family members.

You can ask questions of:

  • Gerard Mansour, Commissioner for Senior Victorians
  • Representative, Australian Government Dept. of Health
  • Philippa Campbell, Elder Rights Advocacy CEO
  • Craig Gear, Older Persons Advocacy Network CEO

During this meeting, we’ll also talk with you about the services available to support you now and on an ongoing basis.

A reminder that this is a meeting for families and residents so that they can have a voice and an opportunity to ask questions. Please be respectful of this.

Register to attend and submit your question

You can submit a question ahead of the meeting that you’d like answered during the meeting. We’ll do our best to answer as many as possible. You can also submit questions during the session via the chat function.

This event has a limited capacity so we encourage you to register to secure your participation. Once you have registered, we’ll send you the link you need to attend the meeting, along with an opportunity to submit your questions.

A recording of the event will be made available on the Older Persons Advocacy Network website and social media platforms following the event.

Older Person Attendance

We would like as many older people living in residential aged care to attend as possible. In addition, we hope that family members enable their older loved ones to participate by encouraging them to register and tune in to the event or facilitating their attendance.

We will be providing steps to assist you with this process on registration.

Who are Elder Rights Advocacy and the Older Persons Advocacy Network?

The Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) provides individual advocacy support to people receiving, or eligible to receive, aged care services. Elder Rights Advocacy is the Victorian network member organisation.

Both organisations are independent of aged care providers and the government.

Elder Rights Advocacy provides free and confidential independent aged care advocacy and information to older people, their families and representatives.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
