Spotlight Series: Let's talk about Ageing - Recorded 29 March 22

With a focus on issues that affect the older members of the community and their loved ones, our Spotlight virtual sessions explore a wide range of aspects of the ageing experience.

The Let’s Talk About Ageing session is a practical guide to the aged care options available to you and your loved one.

  • Are you confused about what support your loved one needs and are unsure how to navigate the system?
  • Are you wanting to downsize and learn about retirement living?
  • Discover what level of care is right for you – perhaps Help at Home can assist or is it time to consider Residential Care?
  • What financial implications should you consider?

Moderated by Montefiore CEO, Robert Orie this session will hear from our panel of experts, Jill Fellows (Retirement Village Expert, M by Montefiore), Thomas Kramer (Director of Residential Care, Montefiore) and Amanda Guinane (General Manager of Help at Home by Montefiore).
