Brendon Telfer is joined by Paula Dunn with an interesting line up in the studio today. Stewart Shaw, General Manager of The Village Baxter starts the point of discussion today about the recent article and a series of articles published in the press about Residential Aged Care, Retirement Villages and Aged Care facilitates and what the industry should look like in their perspective. Steward mentions that it was an unfortunate perspective that the journalist put in the story and some of the comparisons show a lack in understanding the full spread of what occurs and how it occurs and why it occurs. Damien Malone, Operations Manager at Residential Services Tea Tree, Village Glen further discusses that regardless of suggestions from the journalist, the key in when selecting an Aged Care facility is spending a lot of time in the selection, making sure you ask the right questions about the care and services provided and that these are the things people should be making their decisions on.

Our next guest, Dr Stephen Carbone from Beyond Blue talks about how men over 85 years are seven times more likely to resort to suicide.
