For 70 years, COTA Victoria has been bringing the voices of older people to the policy process. We spoke with former COTA Victoria senior policy officer, Donna Swan, about some of COTA’s recent policy achievements.
The Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing supports aged care providers to address the needs of older people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Until 21 July, the centre is also leading the Multilingual Older Person’s COVID-19 support line, with help in six languages.
Throughout this year, as COTA Victoria celebrates turning 70, we’re talking with leaders in health, and wellbeing. To start, we speak with Ngaire Hobbins, author, dietician and specialist in ageing and brain health.
When Living Longer Living Stronger™ began more than 18 years ago, it really was unique in the community. Previously, it was not common to see older Australians entering their local gym and the advice from their health providers was often ‘Don’t do too much!’
If you’re concerned about having a fall, you’re not alone. One-third of all people aged 65+ will fall once or more this year. If you’ve experienced a fall, then there’s a good reason to feel anxious about having another. One in ten falls by those 65+ will result in a fracture.
