Is it time to start thinking about aged care?
WHIDDON Grafton is inviting the community to an information day on Tuesday to help those thinking about aged care to understand the types of care and support options available.
The day will include tours of the new home and rooms and an information session on residential aged care options and costs. Whiddon staff will be available to answer questions and provide assistance with navigating aged care.
Whiddon Grafton Director Care Services, Sandra Osborne, is welcoming the community to attend and said it was a great way to find out more aged care options.
"I encourage anyone thinking about aged care to visit us at the open day to have a look around at our beautiful new building and rooms, and join us for a cuppa and chat," Ms Osborne said.
"We understand that finding the right care and support services to suit you and your family can be overwhelming, so our team are here to help you, or your loved one, with the aged care journey."
"The event offers a fantastic opportunity for the community to find out more about aged care and to understand what support and care is available, such as community care, transport solutions or dementia specific care."
