Older Person’s COVID Support Line – Aged care advocates
Dr Norman Swan, Physician and Journalist
They can help you in understanding your rights and getting additional supports during COVID-19.
Aged care advocates are independent from aged care providers and government, and work at your direction.
The Older Persons Advocacy Network, or OPAN for short, is a national network of aged care advocates. OPAN provides free, confidential information, education and advocacy support.
You can call 1800 700 600.
A friendly staff member from OPAN will be able to help you resolve any issues you’re having in relation to your aged care.
