Now recruiting for stage 2 — online survey

 

The Plug-in would like to invite you to take part in our newest research project!

We are working with a leading active ageing service provider to explore the things that people are looking for in active ageing services — for example recreation and fitness, allied health, nursing services and social experiences.

Ensuring that these services are delivered in a user-friendly way is important for the whole community!

This project is being carried out over two stages — the first is a Focus Group and the second is an online survey.

Now open: Stage 2 — Online Survey

We are now excited to launch the second stage of this project — an online survey that explores a new community hub concept — and The Plug-in invite you to take part!

What’s involved?

Through this online survey we are seeking your insights and feedback about a proposed new community hub concept and redevelopment of aged care living services.

The survey should take less than ten minutes to complete and your answers will remain confidential in accordance with Australian Privacy Principles.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible to take part in this survey if you are aged 50 years or older.

Complete: Stage 1 — Focus Groups

During May, The Plug-in recruited participants for a series of focus groups that explored the things that people look for in active ageing services — for example recreation and fitness, allied health, nursing services and social experiences.

Focus group participants discussed their experiences of accessing active ageing services around their local area to help inform the design and location of active ageing and community services that meet the needs of over 50s in the local City of Onkaparinga area.

What’s involved?

A Focus Group is a casual discussion with 5-6 people talking about their experience of living in and accessing active ageing services around their local area. Focus Groups will be held in May at a location in the City of Onkaparinga council area.

Focus Group participants will receive a $40 gift card as a thank you for their time.

Am I eligible?

As with all our projects, The Plug-in has a range of selection criteria to ensure that the insights we generate are reliable and useful. To be eligible for this project, you will need to be:

  • Aged 50 years or older
  • Live, work or regularly visit the Noarlunga/Christies Beach area
  • Live independently in the community (i.e. not currently in independent/retirement or assisted living)
  • Able to attend a 90-minute focus group at a location in the City of Onkaparinga (venue TBA)

We thank everyone who participated in the focus groups — your contributions are greatly valued!
