Positive Ageing and Community Care
The City of Mitcham's Positive Ageing and Community Care (PACC) website is where you will find information about our services, as well as details of other resources. You might like to start by reading about our philosophy.
Information is designed to be easy to access and understand and is set out in the sections listed to the right under 'Related Links'.
The City of Mitcham's philosophy of positive ageing acknowledges that ageing is not only about physical challenges, but is a complex transition that also encompasses many beneficial aspects. Factors such as lifestyle choices, planning ahead, social connection and community engagement have equal, if not more, impact on a person's capacity to age well as does their physical or mental health.
By reinforcing the positive potential of our older residents, we aim to promote the gains of ageing rather than focus on the losses. We believe this can be achieved through enabling residents to retain their independence in a safe and supportive environment where they are encouraged to remain in their own homes, stay socially connected, actively contribute to community life, pursue their interests, and, most importantly, pass on their wisdom to others.
