I was very pleased to be able to attend a consultation session held by COTA - Council on the Ageing - in at the Wagga RSL Club today.
Topics raised included:
The adequacy of superannuation
Challenges with the built environment - including footpaths and traffic lights
Cost of living,
Aged care services
The complexity of interacting with the federal government, especially through online portals
The wonderful performance of Service NSW
I have committed to hosting a follow up session to explore the issues raised in more depth.
The important contribution of older citizens to our society should not be underestimated and we should be mindful of doing what we can to support them.
