Advocare Incorporated (Advocare) is an independent, community based, not for profit organisation that supports and protects the rights of older people in Western Australia through information, advocacy and education. We enable older people to make informed choices that best suit them. We assist older people to understand their rights, resolve any issues with aged and community care service provision and access the right supports and protections available. Advocare volunteers assist in providing the Community Visitors Scheme to older people living in government subsidised aged care facilities or receiving a home care package. Volunteers provide one on one visits to people who are socially isolated or lonely and whose quality of life would be improved by positive engagement and companionship.
