Report on Post-death Red Tape

COTA VIC has produced a report on the way ‘red tape’ unduly stresses older people when a partner dies. Many companies and community services (even a local library!) demand to see the original death certificate or a certified copy before they will change billing names or be of any assistance. Worth a read!

Health and Wellbeing Needs of Older People living in the Eastern Region

What do older people in the east need to maintain health, wellbeing, independence and safety? The Inner East Primary Care Partnership has produced a report about the Health and Wellbeing Needs of Older People in the Eastern Region of Melbourne to better understand this question.

This work uses the World Health Organisation approach to healthy ageing which considers that a person’s ability to live the life they value is determined by both their intrinsic capability—the personal, health and genetic characteristics within them—and the environment in which they live.

A key purpose of the research is to identify opportunities for future work we can do collaboratively with our partner agencies. 

NPS Medicinewise is supporting the global campaign on antibiotic awareness. The toolkit is available here!
