The Commissioner for Senior Victorian's report has identified a significant issue for our ageing population.
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.
After a corporate career in life insurance and once her children had grown up, Paulina Chong began volunteering in her local community.
On Friday 2 December 2016, as part of the Victoria Against Violence campaign, the Government announced that Victoria’s Commissioner for Senior Victorians Gerard Mansour has had his role expanded to include becoming an ambassador for the prevention of elder abuse.
A free vaccine to protect against shingles is now available to Australians aged 70-79 years.
