Why Australia needs a social insurance scheme for older people
Australia’s community care system is changing. Existing structures of disability services and community aged care are being dismantled while new structures focused on choice and control are supposedly creating a service user focused community care system.
Yesterday the Hon Michael Kirby launched the first Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Ageing and Aged Care Special Issue of the Australasian Journal on Ageing at the Australian Association of Gerontology conference in Alice Springs.
I am very excited to be presenting at the Australian Association of Gerontology (AAG) Annual Conference in Alice Springs, that brings the leading thinkings and researchers on ageing together from across Australia.
I am excited to be presenting a key note address to the Active Ageing Conference in Sydney on 29 October 2015. There are seven key steps that providers need to undertake to implement wellness and reablement with older people.
At the end of July 2015 I facilitated two workshops with providers on the implementation of My Aged Care (MAC) and Regional Assessment Services (RAS).
Too often older people are not active participants and don’t have a voice in the research process. In many ageing research conferences I attend there are not many people presenting on action research with older people.
It’s always great to see how other countries think about, legislate and deliver their aged care services. Where better to find out at the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG) European Region 8th Congress in Dublin.
