This is often a difficult journey to being. It can be hard to understand the problems of caring for loved ones or looking at how they can be better prepared for the future. This Expo will benefit those people who plan for their own needs, as well as the children or relatives who are planning for family members.
I know I have looked at this problem for myself, however, gave up, as I found it all "too hard". This type of Expo is ideal for people like myself, who would benefit from talking to people in the industry. You will be able to hear from experts across a wide range of aged care issues. Some of these include:
Choosing home care
Choosing residential care
Caring for those with dementia
How to navigate the MyAgedCare website
The latest technology in hearing aids
And much more
The Bethanie Lifestyle seminar stage will provide a non-stop stream of information from industry experts. There will also be discussion panels and you will have the opportunity to ask questions here.
The expo will be held on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August 2018, from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in Perth. You can learn about things like the fact that by the end of 2018 every Australian will have a digital "My Health Record".
At the Bethanie Lifestyle seminar stage, you will hear Kirsten Beckingham speaking on Sunday at 10.45 am. Kirsten is from WA Primary Health Alliance and will explain just what this means for you and what is in it for you.
The Chat Lounge is another place where visitors can get more information. This is a more informal stage which is open to business presentations of interest and other miscellaneous sessions. These may include advancing technologies and also what retirement village is the correct one for you.
The Community Vision Retreat is a chill out area within the expo where you will find comfortable seats. It is also a place where visitors can relax and talk with friends or business colleagues over a coffee from the cafe.
There will be approximately 70 exhibitors at this huge ego, so it will be well worth attending. You can check them out at the expo website.
