50+ in Nillumbik: A data story. Report for Nillumbik Agencies. Part 2: Community Care Report uri icon

abstract

  • The aim of this resource is to: Capture data specific to the population and local government area of Banyule. -- Provide Banyule services with a useful tool to support planning and change. -- Make available a resource that can be utilised to advocate for the services our communities require, to ensure its members are living life to the full. -- Banyule’s population is ageing and service providers can expect increases in demand for health services associated with an ageing population, including services to support people living with dementia and their carers. Particular attention may need to be paid locally to people with arthritis and those with experiences of anxiety or depression. As elsewhere in Victoria, obesity and low vegetable consumption are significant health risk factors.
