ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 6. Goal B: Best Practice Service Delivery 70 ACTIONS: 49. Conduct a review of exact projected needs for additional aged, disability and MJD patients over the next 15 years. 50. Apply for government funding for additional infrastructure. 51. Depending upon community support, expand the current aged care facility in Angurugu over the next five to 10 years. 52. Work to increase community engagement with the current aged and disability care services. 53. Continue to work with MJD Foundation on appropriate support and care for MJD clients. 54. Advocate for more extensive lifestyle programs integrated with the residential care facility which distinguish and target aged needs versus disability needs. 55. Advocate for increased capacity for health services to provide weekly home visits for wheelchair users who are unable to access appropriate transport in order to physically get to these services. 56. Advocate for programs which build a care workforce of local community members. 57. Advocate for an analysis to determine the best means to support Certificate III/IV aged/disability care education. 58. Look into possible pre-vocational training and VET programs to support aged/disability care education (i.e. Certificate II in Community Services). 59. Look at providing disability employment opportunities for those people living with disabilities in the community. 60. Advocate for the following proposed infrastructure for Groote Eylandt: Angurugu Flexible Aged Care Centre to become a multi-functional 24/7 residential care facility. Plan for the expansion of the number of beds required in the future. Ensure adherence to Australian Standards building codes for accessibility (AS1428.12009), which must be met as part of any form of negotiations (GEMCO, EASC, NTG, FAHCSIA) to ensure that all new and upgraded community buildings are fully accessible. Audit existing community buildings to determine accessibility, and put plans into place with service providers for agreement that all buildings/offices must be upgraded to become accessible.
