Have your say

FONT SIZE: A+ A-

Alzheimer’s Australia is holding public consultation sessions across the country, giving you the chance to have your say on the Productivity Commission’s Report: Caring for Older Australians.

The Productivity Commission’s Report: Caring for Older Australians was issued in August of this year. You can read the outline of the findings by clicking here. However, what the report did not address was dementia as core business for the aged care sector. Funded by the Australian Government, Alzheimer’s Australia will hold a series of public consultations until 4 November 2011, at local venues across Australia for you to have your say. To find out the nearest session to you, click here.

If you can’t make it to one of the sessions, there’s no need for your voice not to be heard. You can complete an online survey to ensure you have your say. To complete the survey, click here.

What do you think about the Productivity Commission’s Report? Did it miss the mark? Should they have given more consideration to dementia sufferers and how they should be cared for? Let us know what you think below.
