The Sector Support, Development & Training Project hosted the Growing Older Aged Care Conference on 6 November and we'd like to share our memories of the day.
We were lucky enough to secure Sue Pieters-Hawke, daughter of the late Bob and Hazel Hawke, as our MC who is a fierce advocate for people living with Dementia and their carers.
Commissioner Robert Fitzgerald also attended and talked about Elder Abuse and his role as the new Commissioner.
Other speakers included Professor Yun-Hee Jeon, Dr Diana Karamacoska and Dr Beatriz Cardona. Community Project Officers from Wollondilly, Camden and Campbelltown Councils also spoke about Cafe Connect.
