Aged care provider surveys the community
Aged care provider Peninsula Village is appealing to residents to have their say in the future of aged care locally by taking part in its community feedback survey and upcoming focus groups.
Peninsula Village chief Mr Shane Neaves said: "To ensure we can continue to care for locals for a further 40 years and beyond, we are asking community members to participate in our community feedback survey, which aims to find out what older people and their carers or family members expect from residential aged care providers.
"If you are living on the Central Coast and are over 65 years of age, or if you are a carer or family member of a person living in or considering moving into aged care or retirement living, we want to hear from you," Mr Neaves said.
To participate, visit the Peninsula Villages website and hit the survey link on the home page.
All participants will go in the draw to win a $200 gift card for their contribution.
"We are also seeking approximately 20 community members to take part in our final two community focus group sessions on Thursday, July 13," said Mr Neaves.
"We will be running a morning and afternoon session as an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of what community members expect from local aged care providers and what we can do to meet these expectations.
"Each participant will receive a luxury gift hamper for their time.
"By participating in our survey or focus group sessions, you will be lending your voice to the future of aged care on the Central Coast and helping us ensure that we can continue to deliver quality aged care services to the community," Mr Neaves said.
