Are you ageing well?
Basically, how the ethnic background ageing peoples access to government-provided services in their older ages. The services are provided by the federal, state governments and other agencies but are rarely transferred to the ethnic ageing backgrounds, the setbacks are partly due to not understanding the language they can understand. Therefore, the community radio is very essential in reporting these issues in a language where they can communicate and understand.
Thus, the community radio broadcasting community gives the platform for the ageing population to be engaged in services they deserve for their wellbeing and part of ageing well. Most of the ageing people from ethnic backgrounds cannot understand languages other than their native language. Therefore, Speak My Language and providing accurate aged care information on your radio programs is very important.
Many government fundings are available to the ageing but agencies benefit more than addressing the needs of the ageing.
For example; dementia older person from an ethnic background needs proper services to understand their need in these situations; therefore Speak My Language and community radio can be a voice for the vulnerable in the community.
To conclude, the value of Ethnic community radio is very important as part of the NEMBC in every community across the country.
