Office for Ageing Well community consultation and engagements
Office for Ageing Well is committed to genuine and effective community engagement. Effective engagement with older people involves actively listening and genuinely responding to what matters to them most. It is open, inclusive and supports a dynamic dialogue between government and the community. Engagement is not only about giving older people a voice, it is about ensuring older people are valued and respectfully included in the decisions that ultimately affect them. It is about building genuine partnerships with older people to benefit them, the work that we do and the community we live in.
Older South Australians have the right to be safe and to be treated with dignity and respect. Decisions about their lives, finances, where they live, health care, lifestyle and relationships are important and older people have the right to make these decisions as they wish. Visit our Stop Elder Abuse page to learn more about your rights, the signs of elder abuse and where you can go to find more information and advice.
Planning Ahead is about safeguarding your rights and taking control of your future. It means that your choices will be known and acted on if you cannot express them yourself at some time in the future. Visit the Planning Ahead page to learn more about the benefits of early planning and the various legal tools available to help secure future health, financial, legal and personal choices.
