Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 22nd 2009
28 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 23, 2009 MB NEWS BRIEFLY Seniors' free flu gab EVERYONE over the age of 65 is being urged to visit their GP for a free vaccination ahead of this year's flu season, which runs from now until October but peaks around August. The elderly and those with chronic medical conditions can suffer complications from flu that have the potential to cause death. Federal Ageing Minister Justine Elliot urged anyone over 65 to make an appointment with their GP for a free vaccination. Help with fire safety ASHFIELD Council is reminding seniors that it can help with fire safety. The council and the Ashfield fire station offer free smoke alarms, smoke alarm installation and battery replacement for seniors and people with a disability living in the Ashfield local government area. ''This program is designed to support elderly people residing in their own homes to live independently and safely,'' said Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy. To apply, phone Ruth Paillas at Ashfield Council on 9716 1842. Prevent a fall sessions PRESBYTERIAN Aged Care Community Services is holding a falls prevention program for seniors in Ashfield starting on May 5 and continuing until June 19. Morning tea is included. Pick-ups and drop-offs are available in the Ashfield and Drummoyne areas for $6 per session. This program is supported by Aged Care rehabilitation from Sydney South West Area Health Service. The sessions are on Tuesdays from 9.30am to noon, in the day therapy centre at 40 Charlotte St, Ashfield. Phone 9797 3100 for more information. Ahoy, a new website PREPARATIONS for the State's new volunteer marine rescue organisation have got a boost with the launch of a special website. Ports and Waterways Minister Joe Tripodi said the new site would enable the volunteer rescue community to register interest in joining the new group, as well as monitoring related news and information. ''A new unified organisation will eliminate duplication and provide more consistent coverage of marine rescue across the state,'' he said. Mr Tripodi said a working group had been established to set up the necessary framework for the new organisation. The new website can be found at www.marinerescuensw.com.au. Achieve better outcomes ABORIGINAL families with small children in the Inner West will benefit from two new services announced by the State Government last week. Non-profit community organisations, local government and government agencies have been invited to submit expressions of interest to operate the Deadly Tots -- No Gammin Project and the Inner West Aboriginal Child and Family Network Project. The Deadly Tots project, which has been allocated $167,137 funding, will provide culturally appropriate educational resources to Aboriginal parents and carers on topics including healthy child development, early literacy and transition to school. The Inner West Aboriginal Child and Family Network Project will provide a forum for local services to plan and collaborate in order to achieve better outcomes for Aboriginal families. It has been allocated $103,511 funding. Applications and details for each expression of interest are available on the Community Services website at www.community.nsw.gov.au/EOI. They must be submitted by close of business on April 30. Never too late to learn BEGINNER piano keyboard lessons for seniors are being launched at the Drummoyne Community Centre.
