Your Side Announce Tracey Spicer AM as Ambassador
Your Side is excited to announce Tracey Spicer AM as their new ambassador. Tracey will be talking about how care planning early can assist ageing loved ones to stay safe in their own homes for longer. While working full-time and raising two children, Tracey was a carer for her beloved grandfather in his final years. Her father now has emphysema and the family rallied around to organise support services.
“I wish I had known about the help available a lot earlier in this process. If I’d talked to an organisation like Your Side, then I would have had more quality time to spend with loved ones, instead of the frustration of researching and coordinating care,” Tracey says.
“Your Side is thrilled to have Tracey as our ambassador. She is not only an experienced and Walkley Award winning journalist, but a wonderful person who has stood up for what she believes in. Our job at Your Side is to help people access the right support so they can live a full life in our community as they age. Tracey has been a fearless spokesperson and influencer throughout her career with an authentic connection to equality and social justice. I am also looking forward to discussing some of the themes and recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety in our ‘In Conversation’ sessions,” says Your Side Australia’s CEO Danielle Ballantine.
