COTA Needs Your Input And Advice
COTA Australia's Home Care Today program wants to interview older people who have been assessed as eligible for a Home Care Package and have a level of income above the age pension. We are also interested to speak with those in your personal support network who may be assisting you with making decisions.
The interview will take approximately 45 minutes and can be over the telephone. The purpose of the interview is to find out what is important to you when making decisions about aged care supports.
You can also get involved with COTA by:
- Joining your State/Territory COTA as a member
- Delivering Peer Education sessions
- Taking an active role in our campaigns and forums
