  • If you wish to sign the charter, please hand the signed charter to the Spectrum staff member who will record it on your file, and return a copy to you.

Aged Care Advocacy

Advocacy is helping someone to have their voice heard. Spectrum recognises the importance of maintaining your right to use an advocate or representative of your choice. You can select and involve an advocate or a chosen representative to participate or act on your behalf. Our staff will work cooperatively with your nominated advocate and show the same respect to the advocate as shown to you.
