Elder abuse survey


Bona fide health sources


Get flu-shot with Covid

Despite HKCT being a single service provider, we know of, learn about, train in, and read endless updates on topics to do with our broader community, the aged and aged care services. I was so saddened to read a National Elder Abuse Prevalence Study, surveying 7,000 people (aged 65+ i.e. people like you) regarding experience of elder abuse.

One in six older Australians (14.8%) reported abuse in the twelve months prior to being surveyed; others reported psychological abuse (11.7%), neglect (2.9%), financial abuse (2.1%), physical abuse (1.8%) and sexual abuse (1%). Often it was by family members but also by friends.

If you (or someone that you know) are suffering financially, psychologically, or from abuse of any nature, call the Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) on 1800 700 600 for advice or help (it will be strictly confidential). I hope we always make the choice to stand up for ourselves, ask for help and never ever let embarrassment stop us. Nor ever think that we have any reason to be ashamed.

Health officials remind everyone that annual influenza vaccination is essential for all. And even more important now as, over the COVID-19 period, we’ve had lower exposure to the influenza virus as well as lower levels of influenza vaccine coverage compared to previous years.

As borders reopen, it’s possible there will be a resurgence of influenza. Speak with your GP or pharmacy and book in for a flu shot now— and then book us for transport.

And ATAGI advises that influenza vaccines can be given along with the C-19 vaccine, should you be up for your 3rd dose.

I hope we always make rational health decisions, based upon bona fide sources, so we can get out there and know we’ve done all we can for ourselves and others while we live our lives fully.
