OPAAL and Macmillan Cancer Support want to make sure that older people are supported and enabled to exercise their right, express their views, explore and make informed choices about their care. Yesterday I met two of their volunteers who work with cancer patients in Dorset. I didn’t know anything about this organisation and was very impressed by them and their organisation which is supported by Macmillan.
OPAAL’s new Cancer, Older People and Advocacy project publication “Every Step of the Way“: 13 stories illustrating the difference that independent advocacy makes to older people affected by cancer was launched on March 25th 2014. You can download a copy here.
