East Gippsland Positive Ageing Strategy 2010-2013 –Key Directions Statement
As communities are growing and developing and their share of residents aged 60 years and over is increasing, East Gippsland Shire Council and local service providers and clubs are planning together to provide supportive and enabling living environments for older residents. This work is in recognition that older people are an integral part of families, communities, culture and economies.
Consultation was held with a range of older people, and those approaching older age, to ascertain their concerns and priorities and the objectives and goals outlined in the East Gippsland Positive Ageing Strategy 2010-2013 –Key Directions Statement will provide for further work within communities, agencies and Council to develop a set of actions which will be taken to address the needs of East Gippsland’s ageing population.
