Seniors Rights Service and the Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) are inviting older people living in residential aged care in Greater Sydney, and their families, to a Zoom meeting to ask questions about the latest COVID-19 outbreak.
The meeting will allow concerned persons to ask questions they may have about the COVID-19 outbreak and how it affects them and their older family members.
Appearing online to answer questions will be:
- Professor Michael Kidd, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health
- Lisa Peterson, Associate Secretary Vaccine Taskforce, Department of Health
- Janet Anderson, Commissioner, Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission
- Craig Gear, CEO, Older Persons Advocacy Network
- Margaret Crothers, Advocate, Regional Coordinator, Seniors Rights Service
During the meeting, information will be presented about the services available to support those in residential aged care now and on an ongoing basis.
This is a meeting for families and residents so that they can have a voice and an opportunity to ask questions.
Register here to attend and submit your question.
You can submit a question ahead of the meeting that you’d like answered during the meeting. Experts will do their best to answer as many as possible. Questions can also be submitted during the session via the Q & A function.
This event has a limited capacity so interested parties are encouraged to register to secure participation.
Once registered, participants will be sent the link needed to attend the meeting, along with an opportunity to submit questions.
A recording of the event will be made available on the OPAN 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.
