PANEL: Navigating the Aged Care system

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We've all heard that the world's population is ageing. And our Sydney Jewish community is ageing at an even faster rate. But what does this mean for you and your family? Bringing together some of our community's leading minds in ageing, across a variety of relevant organisations, we will discuss what they have learned from their shared wealth of experience on the front lines of aged care. What does ageing currently look like in our community? How are we responding to current need, and planning for the future? What could ageing look like in ten, twenty or thirty years, and what practical steps can we take to bring this dream vision of growing older to life? And what should we be doing, as individuals and families, to ensure that we have the best possible journey through ageing?
