Finding the right aged care support for you or someone you care for can be difficult. It may be an emotional time for you and your family as it’s sometimes hard to know what the best care option is and the system itself can be tricky to navigate.
As an independent, community-based organisation and the peak body in aged care advocacy in WA, Advocare provides care-finding services under the Australian Government’s care finder program network.
Our knowledgeable advocates can help if you’re having difficulty understanding the ins and outs of organising aged care services to support you self as you age, or if you’re assisting someone else to make sense of it all.
Our services are free, confidential and guided by you. We will work with you, by your side, every step of the way to help you resolve your issue.
For independent, free and confidential information and support, call us on 1800 655 566.
If you speak a language other than English we can arrange assistance via the Translating and Interpreting Service.
At Advocare we believe our rights do not diminish with age.
