The Ageing Well in Nillumbik Action Plan 2019 - 2022 has now been adopted by Council. It will guide the delivery of key priorities and actions.
Thank you to everyone who shared their ideas on helping Nillumbik to become more age-friendly, and gave us feedback on support needs and experiences.
The Commonwealth Government has introduced major changes to aged and disability services over the past two years across Australia. The changes include new ways to provide consumers with increased choice in service providers and the services they receive.
The feedback received has helped Council to identify three major priorities to help you live and age well in the community:
- Accessible community transport, particularly for residents in the rural hinterland
- Addressing social isolation and loneliness
- Support navigating the Commonwealth government's "My Aged Care" service system in the short term to assist residents to access services they need
A second survey was released between October and November 2018, to help us better understand your needs in relation to these priorities. The feedback received from this will help Council to better plan aged services for the Nillumbik community. The survey report is now available to read.
