Chorus Voices

This week on Chorus  Voices we’re talking about an issue that few people know about, but one that is affecting a large number of Western Australians in quite a negative and tragic way. The issue is known as elder abuse. Elder abuse includes physical abuse, marital abuse, and financial abuse of older people, and it’s more common than anyone would want to imagine. To help us bring this issue into the light, we’re going to hear from someone who has suffered it firsthand. Listen in to hear this heart-wrenching story, and to learn what elder abuse looks like.

Gardening is in many ways a metaphor for health. A garden requires tending. It requires time, attention and caring. The more love a garden gets, the healthier and more beautiful it becomes. A garden spreads joy to all those around it.

Join Chorus Voices Podcast hosts Louise Forster and Dan Minchin as they explore how gardening has taken root in the Chorus community.
