2024 First Nations Greater Choices for Aged Care: Elders Wellbeing Conference

Monday 22 April to Wednesday 24 April 2024

The 2024 National First Nations Elders Wellbeing Conference: Greater Choices for Aged Care is designed to provide organisations, service managers and front line workers in the aged care sector the opportunity to network, discuss and share information in regards to the successes and challenges they have experienced in the roll out and the implementation of the My Aged Care's consumer-directed care which aimed to provide frail older persons living in the community better choice and control over their care, independence at home and decision-making to address their needs to stay at home safely.

This conference aims to highlight the eight priority areas which My Aged Care clients identified as important to them, based on the survey results outlined in the Consumer Experience Report (CER) for home-based and community-based aged care services. These priority areas include but are not limited to: control, Interpersonal interaction, Flexibility, Local residence in Country, Affordability, Administrative and financial literacy, Safety and Timeliness of service provision. Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islander Elders and their families would more likely access aged care services when it allows them to stay on Country, being cared for by their own mob and the ability to maintain their connection to country, culture and community.
