Speakers at two days of seminars at the first Perth Care and Ageing Expo will address issues as broad as aged care for the culturally diverse, to dealing with dementia and even a touch of comedy as part of an address by entertainer Max Kay on ageing disgracefully.
Both State and Federal ministers responsible for aged care will be among a host of speakers over the two days who will address various facets of how we go about looking after an ageing population.
The seminar will be part of an exhibition of up to 60 organisations promoting a range of services from residential care providers; home care providers; retirement living providers; equipment providers; service providers; health care providers (physiotherapists, cognitive therapists, counsellors etc); vulnerable care groups – indigenous, LGBT, homeless; legal, financial, banks, superfunds, insurance; medical, pharmacy; consultants; technology; NFP support groups; Local, State and Federal Government agencies; workforce, recruitment
Federal Minister for Aged Care, Ken Wyatt, will provide the opening address on the Saturday, followed by entertainer Max Kay, whose Ageing Disgracefully address will take an at-times humorous look at his own experience of the world through mature eyes.
On the Saturday radio and TV presenter John Burgess will be broadcasting his 6IX show live from the Expo. Perth Care and Ageing Expo will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday July 29 and Sunday July 30.
