Positive ageing resources
Aged Services survey
The Commonwealth Government has introduced major changes to aged and disability services over the past two years across Australia. The changes include new ways to provide consumers with increased choice in service providers and the services they receive.
The feedback received has helped Council to identify three major priorities to help you live and age well in the community:
- Accessible community transport, particularly for residents in the rural hinterland
- Addressing social isolation and loneliness
- Support navigating the Commonwealth government's "My Aged Care" service system in the short term to assist residents to access services they need
By completing the brief survey below, you will help us better understand your needs in relation to these priorities. Your feedback will help Council to better plan aged services for the Nillumbik community.
Survey closes 30 November.

Positive Ageing Reference Group
The Positive Ageing Reference Group aims to actively promote and support positive ageing across the wider Nillumbik community. The purpose of the group is to provide a mechanism for Council to consult with community representatives in seeking advice and guidance around issues and barriers affecting people aged 55 and over. The group meets every four weeks on Friday afternoons.
If you think that you could play a role in supporting Nillumbik's older adults to live and age well we would love to hear from you.
