The National Aged Care Advocacy Program
The National Aged Care Advocacy Program (NACAP) is funded by the Australian Government under the Aged Care Act 1997. It provides free, independent and confidential advocacy support and information to older people (and their representatives) receiving, or seeking to receive, Australian Government funded aged care services.
Advocacy services ensure that the rights of consumers are supported, and that they are empowered to make informed decisions about their care.
From 1 July 2017, the Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) has been engaged to deliver the NACAP as a single national provider. OPAN delivers NACAP through its network of nine service delivery organisations across Australia. Each provides a nationally consistent model of independent advocacy, information and education focused on the rights of older Australians in need of care.
To speak to an advocate, call the National Aged Care Advocacy line on 1800 700 600 (free call) or visit the OPAN website
My mum was cared for and loved at BlueWave for 3 months. Has the most caring and wonderful staff. My mums stay was short but she was very very happy here. I saw firsthand how the wonderful staff cared for the aged residents. Attention, entertainment, great food cooked on site. Highly recommend this place
My Dad was very well cared for over 10 years. Respected, entertained and well nourished. An example of caring professional staff at Blue Wave
Doing a great job. This has got to be one of the best Nursing Homes I’ve seen in a long time
What wonderful and enthusiastic staff. You are a blessing
