2018 sees the launch of a new initiative in the Northern Sydney Region: ‘My Aged Care’ Consumer Expo
The objective of the event is two-fold:

- To give aged care consumers living in the Northern Sydney Region the opportunity to meet and find out what aged care services are available locally
Four Aged Care Consumer Expos will be held in 2018, one in each of the four (4) Northern Sydney Regions. Below are the dates and location for each of the Expos.
- Northern Beaches: Thursday 22 March – Dee Why RSL
- Ryde/Hunters Hill: Thursday 21 June – Epping Club
- Lower North Shore: Thursday 23 August – Norths
