The Albany Age Friendly Charter
CraigCare is a proud partner in developing the Age Friendly Charter in Albany.
An Age-Friendly community is one in which governments, service providers, public officials, community leaders and business:
- Recognise the great diversity among older people;
- Promote their inclusion in all areas of community life;
- Respect their decisions and lifestyle choice; and
- Anticipate and respond flexibly to ageing-related needs and preferences.
Craigcare Albany are proud to announce they are working in partnership with the City of Albany WA, other aged care providers and community service providers and a community panel on the development of the Age Friendly Charter for the Greater Southern Region in Western Australia.
The City of Albany, with the Western Australian Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA), have secured funding to create an Age Friendly Charter for the Lower Great Southern including, City of Albany, Shire of Denmark and the Shire of Plantagenet in Western Australia.
The first meeting has been held, agreement on the terms of reference has been reached and a brainstorming session to identify goals and areas of focus has taken place. Stay tuned for more updates!
