Sherwood Place, Inala Place & Ithaca Presbyterian Church Information Sessions for Seniors & Retirees – September 2018

22 August 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 ‘consumer directed care’ (‘CDC’) – what it means, how you are impacted, what you’re entitled to and what you need to do.

Sherwood Place: 23 Thallon Street, Sherwood QLD 4075

Inala Place: 16 Lorikeet Street, Inala QLD 4077

Ithaca Presbyterian Church – Paddington: 100 Enoggera Terrace, Paddington QLD 4064
