Social Inclusion Visits
Over one million elderly Australians receive aged care services*. However, quality of these services is challenged with the aging population as well as a relative fall in the number of carers. It is also alarming that many aged care residents have no or only a few visitors in a year due various social reasons. Such factors lead to social exclusion in our community.
* “Caring for Older Australians”. Australian Government Productivity Commission Inquiry Report No. 53, published on 28 June 2011.
As a response to this worrying issue, our organisation contacted a number of aged care centres in Sydney. As we are recently receiving invites from a number of facilities, we are now calling for new volunteers to join our social inclusion visits.
By organising scheduled visits to aged care centres, we aim to join the elderly in their daily activities. So we can establish a link between our community and the elderly without discrimination of sex, faith, race, age and cultural ethnicity.
