WA Country Health Service Survey

WA Country Health Service have engaged Rural Health West to undertake a survey in a number of towns including Kojonup regarding a person’s ability to age in place. The survey is targeted at people aged over 65 years of age or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people over 50 years of age. The survey is also open to people in this age bracket that may have close ties to Kojonup but may not live within the boundaries. For example, if you complete your regular grocery shopping, attend a medical practitioner or participate in other regular social or community activities in one of these towns, you are welcome to contribute to the survey.

Your responses to this survey cannot be traced back to you in any way. The answers provided will be used to help Rural West plan and evaluate services in your area, learn more about what’s happening in your community and to improve how we collect information.

You can participate by:

  1. Completing a hard copy of the survey (available from the Shire office, Shire library, The Kodja Place and Community Resource Centre). Surveys can be completed and returned to points of collection to be mailed back in bulk by pre-paid post.
  2. Registering your interest in the survey by telephoning 08 6389 4524 and Rural West can: a) call you back to complete the survey by telephone; or b) let you know when and where you can attend one of the upcoming face to face community sessions in your area.
