THE Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety will head to Western Australia with a community forum in Broome in June.
The forums are an opportunity for members of the community to hear about the work of the royal commission and to offer ideas on the challenges, strengths and opportunities to improve aged care.
The commission would especially like to hear from older people, elders, families, carers and care workers.
Commissioner Lynelle Briggs will attend the forum.
The venue is Broome Civic Centre from 2-4.30pm on June 19; afternoon tea will be provided.
The event is open to anyone. Those attending will be able to speak with commission staff and there will also be a chance for some people to make a five-minute statement.
Anyone who would like to make a statement must contact the commission no later than June 14 by phoning 1800-960-711 or Aarnja on (08) 9192-2361 to speak in your language.
