ACSA National Community Care Conference 2012
It is with great pleasure we invite you to Adelaide, South Australia for the Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) fourth national Community Care Conference and Trade Exhibition. It will be hosted by Aged and Community Services SA & NT and held from 21st May to 22nd May 2012 at the world class Adelaide Convention Centre.
The Conference speaking program has been developed around the Conference theme of Firm Foundations : Flexible Futures.
Community Care is a valued and essential component of many people’s lives. It was established to provide practical support to help people stay in their own homes and to live the life they choose.
Aged care as a whole is changing in response to our ageing population and the emergence of consumer directed care. Against this background we see our Governments at all levels considering broader reform. As we go through this change we can capitalise on the energy, enthusiasm and principles from our community care foundations to ensure future systems, models and approaches with far greater flexibility to support older people and their carers. Aged care providers need to build on the firm foundations of community care principles as we move with a positive focus towards an unknown future in genuine partnership with the consumers of community care services.
Adelaide is a diverse multicultural city. It is picturesque with the beautiful Torrens River running through the city and parklands. The city offers exceptional food and wine and is easily accessible from the rest of Australia. South Australia offers a wide range of experiences, from the wineries of the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills, white sandy beaches and the unique Kangaroo Island, to the rugged outback of the Flinders Ranges and beyond.
So please come and experience South Australia.
On behalf of the Conference Steering Committee,
acting Chief Executive Officer ACSA
