Currently, we are seeking older people, their carers and families to help us create an age-friendly health system in Indigo Shire. If you know an older person living in Indigo Shire, or a carer or family member, who would like to be part of a team building an age-friendly health system, please contact Tricia Hazeleger, Engagement and Participation Coordinator, for more information. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0427 659 721. Download flyer.
Research invitation: What do older people want from their health care?
All Victorians over the age of 65, and their carers (regardless of age), are invited to participate in an important survey to discuss health care preferences, expectations and priorities. The input will inform a report that will be provided to the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to assist them in developing health policy that is informed by older people.
View the online survey here; if you would like a hardcopy survey, see the flyer for details. The survey will take about 15–20 minutes to complete. Survey participants will go in the draw to win one of five $40 Coles Myer gift vouchers.
The National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) is working with the DHHS to develop a better understanding of what is important to older people in Victoria in relation to their health and wellbeing needs at key points in their later life.
