Townsville/Ayr Information Sessions for Seniors & Retirees – May/June 2018
Confused about aged care services and your entitlements?
PresCare is holding FREE information sessions for anyone who would like to know more about government-funded aged care packages and their entitlements. You’ll get to meet face-to-face with our Client Services Managers who will help you understand recently introduced ‘consumer directed care’ (‘CDC’) – what it means, how you will be impacted, what you’re entitled to and what you need to do.
