The health and wellbeing of older people is of utmost importance to us.
We are modifying our practices in line with Federal and State Government recommendations – which are being updated regularly. This includes social distancing and working remotely.
From 24 March all Advocare staff will be working from home, but we are still here to support you and provide information.
Our phones and emails are still working.
We will continue to provide free and confidential advocacy services to clients across WA over the phone on 9479 7566 / 1800 655 566 between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday, and by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
