Ageing in Australia Expo interview on SBS Serbian Radio

Ljubica Petrov from the Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing, spoke to SBS Serbian radio about the Ageing in Australia: Cultural Diversity in Aged Care Expo this morning.

The Ageing in Australia: Cultural Diversity in Aged Care Expo will be held at Melbourne Town Hall on the 27th April and is an opportunity for the public learn about aged care services.

The free public event is ideal for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who will be able to speak with service providers, receive free advice and collect multilingual information aimed at helping you navigate the aged care system. Interpreters will be available to assist with communication on request.
