 “Power, respect and informed choice for older people.”

 

Advocare is an independent, community-based not-for-profit organisation that supports and protects the rights of older people in Western Australia through information, advocacy and education.

We enable older people to make informed choices that best suit them.

 

We assist older people to understand their rights, resolve any issues with aged and community care service provision, and access the right supports and protections available.
