Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : May 20th 2009
12 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 21, 2009 MB NEWS Forums make life easier for elderly www.innerwestweekly.com.au TRANSLATION: This story is translated in Chinese at www.innerwest weekly.com.au FORUMS designed to help older Chinese- born residents find out more about the services available to them were officially launched by the Australian Chinese Com- munity Association on Friday. The Chinese Community Information Forums will offer advice in Cantonese on topics such as health, funerals, retirement, registering a business, tutoring tips, credit problems and door-to-door selling. The forums were launched by State Fair Trading and Citizenship Minister and Strathfield MP Virginia Judge and former Liberal and independent MP Helen Sham- Ho at the Marigold Restaurant in Haymarket. Ms Sham-Ho said her own fear of death due to illness had demonstrated to her that health-related information for elderly Chinese was hard to come by. ''This is terrific,'' Ms Sham-Ho, who was Australia's first Chinese-born parliamen- tarian, said. Ms Judge said Australian Chinese ac- tively supported their community, es- pecially their elders. ''The death of a loved one and arranging a funeral is one of the most sensitive topics in society,'' Ms Judge said. ''I want to make sure that families know that they are being looked after, especially in a time of grief and heartbreak. ''That's why one of the most recent translations I have authorised into Chinese is for funeral brochures, which will be available from June 1.'' Forums begin on June 20 from 2pm to 4pm at the ACCA Centre in Sydney. Other forums will be held in July at Cabramatta; August at Hurstville and Chatswood; and September at Parramatta.
