Calling all older residents & carers living in the Rural City of Wangaratta!

The WAVE project, supported by Northeast Health Wangaratta and La Trobe University Wodonga, aims to determine how older people living in the Rural City of Wangaratta (RCOW) can be better supported to achieve optimal health and wellbeing outcomes. This information will be used to develop future aged care, health and community services and amenities/facilities to support well ageing.

If you’re over 65, or a family member/carer of an older person living in RCOW, we want to know what is important to you. Is transport an issue? Do you feel isolated or struggle to get to activities? Do you know what services are available? No matter what it is, we want to know how we can improve services to ensure that the RCOW is a great place to live for all older people.
