Cardinia Shire Council is reminding residents to share their ideas for the development of the Ageing Well Strategy 2019–24 before consultation closes at 5pm on Monday 22 April.
An age-friendly community is one in which older people are given opportunities to:
– be healthy and active
– stay socially connected
– participate fully in society.
Cardinia Shire Deputy Mayor Councillor Collin Ross encouraged residents of all ages to participate in the consultation.
“The five-year strategy will be a roadmap to supporting the wellbeing of Cardinia Shire’s ageing community,” he said.
“We all know and care for someone in our community that will benefit from this strategy, so I encourage everyone to share their ideas for making our shire more age-friendly.
“We have facilitated a number of interactive community sessions to hear your ideas and experiences as we work to create an age-friendly community. If you weren’t able to make to one of these sessions, you can still have your say online at council’s website.”
