Ageing Communities Support Program.

The Rupanyup & District Carers Support Group will be examining a way to develop an Ageing Communities Support Program.

A program that looks at introducing or developing a range of services that assist and support frail, older people and people with a disability to continue living at home whilst still accessing their community as independently as possible, thereby preventing inappropriate or premature placement into residential care.

A program that lobbies Government at all levels, Federal, State and Local and other Primary Care Agencies that currently has the role to provide services to support carers in their caring role.

A program that trains, develops and supports dedicated volunteers to provide assistance and support to the elderly and their carers.

We would like to hear your views and seek interest from individuals and other groups that may have an interest to work to support this type of program.

If you wish to be kept informed about the Ageing Communities Support Program, email: rupanyupcarersgroup@rupanyupmensshed.org.au or call David Craker on 0353105931 and we will take your details.
