A series of info sessions during September and October will explore all aspects of aged care, plus how to stay connected, safe and entertained online.

The Council is partnering with the Seniors Rights Service, Carers NSW and Services Australia to present the free sessions on aged care, which will cover topics such as moving into a retirement home and getting government support through the My Aged Care service.

The sessions will also look at consumer rights when moving into assisted living and how to navigate any entry and exit costs.

All four sessions will be held via Zoom during October and after each presentation attendees have the chance to ask questions.

To help seniors get through the current lockdown, a series of info sessions are coming up on how to access online entertainment and socialise online.

The first of these on Thursday 16 September will show older residents how to use digital library services such as films, magazines and books.

On Thursday 23 September older residents can find out how to use WhatsApp, Messenger and Zoom to stay connected with family and friends.

Between 10.30am and 11.30am on Thursday 30 September the world of online entertainment will be explained, including how to view or download free TV shows and how to subscribe to and unsubscribe from pay TV.

Spotting online scams and protecting yourself from being scammed is the subject of the session on Friday 1 October between 2.30pm and 3.30pm.
