10 Questions to Ask

Dr Aline Smith, Chair of Central Sydney GP Network helped launch the '10 Questions to Ask' brochures at Seniors' Week on 7 March 2017.

Since the Commonwealth's aged care reforms, there is increasing confusion about how to access Residential Aged Care Facilities. Many individuals are caught unaware about contracts and fees associated with these services. As health professionals, we can often be the first port of call for elderly people wanting advice. These brochures contain essential questions for people to ask when they are choosing aged care and residential care, including palliative care services. The suite of brochures is available for download on the recently established 10 Questions website.
