Advocates for senior citizens

SENIORS in the South West now have access to a free support network that will advocate for their rights.

Forrest MHR Nola Marino said the new service was easily accessed through a website and a free call number.

“I meet senior South West residents every day and I know how vulnerable they can be,” she said.

“That is why the new Older Persons Advocacy Network will be of such benefit, by giving people a strong voice.” Seniors, their families or carers in need of advocacy should go to opan.com.au or call 1800 700 600.
