Launching the seniors register in Port Melbourne

The Seniors Register was launched at the Sandridge Trugo Club in Garden City Reserve on Monday.
When residents join the register they are put on a database which contains information that can help in times of emergency. They receive a card with an ID number, fridge magnet for personal community contacts, a key ring with emergency telephone numbers and a booklet to help older people live more confidently and independently.
The register is confidential and can only be accessed by the police and the project coordinator. It is already operating in Elwood and South Melbourne.
Bendigo Bank provided abundant afternoon tea and very lovely singing.
Please encourage senior neighbours to sign up or contact me or Michael Wood on 9209 6260 for further information so that you can explain it to your neighbours.
