A Commitment to Community

May 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Aged Care Service is not your typical business related topic or something most of us would even consider as a relevant subject.

But (and this is a huge BUT), consider the following:

Firstly, let’s shed light on some facts. According to Census 2011 data, provided by the Australian Croatian Community Centre (ACCS), 62.8% of Croatians born overseas that are currently living in Australia are senior citizens; out of those, 22.6% belong to an age group 55-64 and staggering 40.2% are over 65 years old.

Secondly, we all are pressed for time from dusk till dawn, often torn between our demanding business requirements and our moral and cultural inclination to take care of our elderly in the way we would like them to be treated.

Take a moment and ask yourself:

Can you ALWAYS provide the ever-increasing support for your ageing parent’s day-to-day needs?

If you are as busy as most of us are at the VCCC, then the answer is undoubtedly ‘No’.

And, while you are the first and the best choice when it comes to taking care of your elderly loved ones, it’s important to know about your second best option:

The ACCS Home Support Services.

This event will expose you to all services and options available and the new Aged Care Legislation (as of February 2017). And since we all have different family structures with individual needs, the ACCS will use this forum to present you with the opportunity to inquire about your own custom care options.

Don’t miss a chance to be informed by those who made a dedicated commitment to our community; Franci Buljat (CEO of ACCS) and Jenny Matic (Committee of Management member at ACCS and also an Executive Director – Government Relations, Policy & Media at LASA (Leading Age Care Services).

ACCS is our community safety net, and you should make the most of it by supporting it. It starts here:

Incorporated into the event is networking over canapés and drinks.
