State election March 2017: With the state election just over the horizon, the Perth Voice takes a look at some of the policy announcements affecting seniors.
THE WA Greens will create a policy unit for ageing.
The unit would develop and implement policies for seniors across the whole of government.
The Greens are also committed to providing suitable and affordable accommodation, both public and social for seniors, which would go hand-in-hand with appropriate support services so they can stay in their own homes.
The Greens will initiate and support legislation and actions that work with the building industry to adopt the standards of universal design for accessibility, adaptability and environmental sustainability.
