Southern Cross Care spent the weekend at the Care and Ageing Expo held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The expo was a showcase of products, services, technology, information and education and provided an opportunity for people to have an informed choice about aged care. With a focus on innovation, there were over 80 exhibitors on show and 26 presentations from industry leaders.
