Welcome message from Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers Luke Donnellan

I’m pleased to introduce Recognising senior Victorians, which takes a new approach to celebrating the lives and contributions of seniors living in aged care.

Seniors make an enormous contribution to our community and so many people living in aged care have interesting life stories to tell to enrich us all. Recognising senior Victorians is all about capturing and sharing these stories so we can all listen in and enjoy them.

This program shines a light on the efforts of both residents and staff during the global pandemic and celebrates the contributions of older Victorians throughout their lives.

Victoria’s aged care residents and staff have shown great resilience. I hope this program will also give our community a chance to celebrate the lives of residents and show their support for the aged care staff and volunteers who have gone above and beyond in 2020.

Recognising senior Victorians will be published here and shared with aged care facilities.

I encourage you to have a read or listen in.
