Home' Australian Ageing Agenda : AAA Jul-Aug 2013 Contents Web watching
A couple of online offerings recently launched in the
aged care space.
This new online resource for Australia's community and
residential aged care professionals from the iCareHealth
team includes news, insights, opinions from industry leaders, resources, and stories from
care providers. Topics on the discussion agenda include eHealth, technology, innovation,
management, funding, quality and governance, medication and CDC.
Internet relay is the latest offering from the National Relay Service, which offers telephone
communication support for people who are deaf, can't hear well or have difficulty using their
voice. This new service offers more mobility and no need for a TTY (teletypewriter). Users only
need an internet connection and can make calls through computers, laptops and some brands
of mobile devices.
PROFESSOR KELLY, we have run out of time. I
do not understand issue 9, the aged care bond
security. I have read it a number of times and it
could be in Korean," said Senator Claire Moore,
Chair of the Senate Community Affairs Legislation
Committee, during the senate inquiry into the five
aged care reform bills.
Five Facebook pages we have liked, and found they have filled our news
feed with facts, figures, philosophy and fun.
BABY BOOMERS: BUSTING
Author Jocelyn Auer is using this page to
post activity around her new book, Baby
Boomers: Busting the Myths, and get a
conversation going about what life is really
like for Baby Boomers. The page includes
media activity surrounding the launch,
such as photos and radio interviews, plus
links to stories in the media talking about
DR CHARLES EUGSTER
Competitive oarsmen and body builder
Dr Charles Eugster is quite possibly the
fittest nonagenarian around. The 93-year-
old says he's chasing health rather than
youthfulness and thinks people have been
brainwashed to think you are finished after
65. He shares his experiences, opinions
and insights on his page.
This peak body for seniors and technology
posts about all things tech. That includes
information and advice for the cyber
world such as online safety, conferences,
government initiatives and the latest research.
This is the official fan page of
eHealthSpace.org, an online community of
health professionals using ICT to improve
patient care. The page includes posts
about people and institutions working at the
forefront of ehealth.
Australia's Department of Human
Services general manager Hank Jongen
is responsible for informing Australians
about commonwealth government support,
services and payments.
