Council based aged care is trusted, safe, and highly valued by the community. With federal changes to the industry proposed or still yet unknown, it’s important to learn what opportunities are presenting themselves. This webinar run by the Australian Services Union will look at industry trends, the importance of council based aged care, and how taking up Home Care Packages (HCP) can strengthen your service during this time.
