By being a member of the Council of Elders, I would like to make a difference. Good aging means being able to live the lifestyle that you desire, having the resources and the ability to be able to do that, and the support when you do need it. Individual care, being able to know the person enough to be able to support their care and needs. Having the skills and the knowledge to be able to do that as well because it is complex, it's not simple.
Aged Care Council of Elders member Sue McCann shares what good ageing means to her, and why it’s important to provide individual care to meet people’s unique needs.
