The Health Alliance Older Person Core Group has made a submission to the Royal Commission presenting the Ageing Well Initiative as a new model of care for older people in the TPCH catchment area and as an example of an invitiatie which is outcome focused and takes a regionally integrated approach to improving the health and wellbeing of older people.

From the perspective of older people, Anne Tennock, a local consumer and carer representative has made a submission focussing on three areas of importance for older people including dispelling misperceptions of ageing, combating social isolation and raising the voice of older people.
