THERE’S some great free senior’s presentations in 2020.

On February 12, The Council on the Ageing will show you have to navigate the often confusing aged care system.

Many seniors living in their own home are unaware they are eligible for support services or don’t know how to access them.

COTA will simplify all the red tape and show you how to quickly get help.

Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to chat one-on-one with an independent aged care navigator.

The presentation will be held from 9.30am-noon at the Melville Civic Centre, 10 Almondbury Road Booragoon.

On March 11, there will be a special session on downsizing at the AH Bracks Library in Melville.

There will be a panel discussion with representatives from the Older People’s Rights Service, Seniors Housing Advisory Centre and Strategic Urban Planning.

Afterwards, attendees can break into smaller groups to ask representatives questions about downsizing, granny flats or seniors’ housing options.

The session will be held from 3.30pm-4.30pm.

For more information on both events and to book call 1300 635 845 or 9364 0666.
