Spiritual care and ageing peak body Meaningful Ageing Australia has become a member of the national body National Aged Care Alliance.
NACA is a body of 54 peak national aged care stakeholder organisations representing providers, consumer groups, unions and health professionals working together for positive change.
MAA CEO Ilsa Hampton said she was delighted the peak has joined NACA.
“As a leading industry voice over the past 20 years, NACA is a critically important cooperative at a time of significant stress and opportunity for aged care.
“As a Member of the Alliance, we are able to offer a positive and unique contribution to the collective effort,” Ms Hampton said.
MAA’s campaigns have built-in opportunities for people to connect with themselves and others, which provides particular insight for the NACA consumer constituency, she said.
“Our major work with an ever-expanding number of service providers on integrated, holistic care means we are also able to bring our perspective to the service provider stream of the alliance.
“Our advocacy for whole-of-person care has always included collaboration with others who are passionate about full quality of life for older people. This is a great next step for our work in this area,” Ms Hampton said.
