Labor teams up with Fronditha Care to deliver Centre for Healthy Ageing

·

With an announcement made earlier today Federal Member for Calwell, Maria Vamvakinou said should Labor gets elected they will invest in a $1.5 million Centre for Healthy Ageing, in conjunction with Fronditha Care.

“As subsequent generations of Greek-Australians are approaching or entering retirement, it is vital to ensure our aged care system remains fit for purpose,” reads the announcement.

“Quality aged care for all Australians, including diverse communities, is a big part of an Albanese Labor government’s commitment to dignity and care for older Australians,” Ms Vamvakinou said.

“This investment will deliver improved outcomes in the way we respond to the changing needs of second-generation Greek-Australians.”

The Centre for Healthy Ageing will look at how the screening, diagnosis and prevention of age-related conditions take into consideration the specific needs of the ageing Greek community, which will have broader implication for our ageing culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

The investment will help support Fronditha Care in delivering program and service responses focused on quality of life and promoting healthy ageing in diverse communities, in particular the Greek community.

“Fronditha Care’s 45-year history of delivering excellence in aged care in the Greek-Australian community will help shape the future of the Centre for Healthy Ageing,” said Ms Vamvakinou.

Frontida Care CEO, Faye Spiteri Tsolakis OAM welcomed the “very generous pledge of an Albanese Labor government for $1.5million for the establishment of a Centre for Healthy Ageing.”

“We are strategically focused on laying the foundations for the future and our ambition is to change how elders are valued in our society. Fronditha Care will bring together multi-disciplinary partners to focus on program and service responses aiming to improve quality of life and promoting healthy ageing in older adults of diverse cultural backgrounds and in particular the Greek community,” said Ms Spiteri Tsolakis.

“We are thrilled by this announcement and such a substantial investment which will make a genuine difference to our community.”
