Coral Wilkinson has been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years. We’ve crossed clinical paths a lot, especially during Coral’s stints as a Clinical Nurse Consultant and Nurse Navigator for older persons, and when she was working on the Aged Care Assessment Team. Coral is one of those very capable and kind characters – the sort of person who lifts the standard and reputation of nursing.
In recent years Coral has started an organisation called See Me Aged Care Navigators which is described as ‘the human compass you need to guide and support you through Australia’s aged care system’. As an adjunct to the organisation and its informative website, Coral has written a book aimed at the adult children of older people in need of support, who are a bit unsure on what services are available and how to access them.
When a nurse in the know writes a book you probably should read it. Especially if it’s about something as mysterious and baffling as Australia’s aged care system. There’s a lot of experience, knowledge and acquired practical wisdom in this book. I am sure that the information provided will assist readers to understand and negotiate complex pathways to care.

That’s it. This blog post is short, sharp, and breezy.
And an overt plug for My Parents Are Ageing, What The Heck Do I Do? by Coral Wilkinson 🙂
