A message from the Commissioner for Senior Victorians with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and the Royal Commission into Family Violence in the spotlight
The Commissioner for Senior Victorian's report has identified a significant issue for our ageing population.
Age-friendly communities encourage ageing and boost good health, security and community participation for Victorian seniors. The initiative aims to promote the inclusion of older people and support services, business and community leaders to better plan for the needs of seniors and enhance the quality of life for people as they age.
In our society, partners, families and friends provide an enormous amount of support for older people. Most of the time, this support is focused on the expressed wishes and needs of the older person and I want to record my appreciation for the great amount of love and care provided by partners, families and friends - in many cases on a daily basis. However the release of the report of the Royal Commission into Family Violence is a timely reminder that there are older people in Victoria who sadly are at risk of, or experiencing, elder abuse.
The Victorian Seniors Card program is celebrating a milestone this month, as it has reached one million active card holders! Minister Foley presented the one millionth Seniors Card holder, Tony Michael, 72, with his Seniors Card and Seniors Myki and a range of gifts from the Government and Telstra.
Seasonal influenza vaccine is recommended annually and free for all people who are at high risk of complications from flu.
