Brendon Telfer is joined by Paula Dunn and Kim Jackson, Executive Manager of The Village Baxter. The team look at health issues and especially the flu in older Australians. Having an unusual flu season this year much more severe than the last few years with so far over 133,000 Australians with confirmed flu and with 8 weeks flu season to go, this flu has been knocking people around and it lingers. Kim talks about what to be aware of, getting vaccinated and what the requirements are in an Aged Care facility.
It is National Stroke Week and to help publicise the National Stroke Foundation we talk to Kathleen Jordan who suffered a major stroke and has recovered and completely rehabilitated her life. Next us is Felicity Wood who talks to us about backs and back pain.
