I would like to take this opportunity to update you on some changes within Clever Care NOW (CCN).
After much consideration I have decided to step down from my position as Chief Executive Officer for CCN.
I take much pride in the progress that we have made in the last five years and want to take this opportunity to thank the CCN Board, management team, nurses and admin staff for their contribution to this success.
Taking part in meaningful social interaction and accessing health and every day services is important at any age, but especially as we age.
Mobility promotes healthy ageing as it relates to the basic human need for movement and participation in the community.
Clever Care NOW provides a reliable, safe and flexible service to transport people to and from medical appointments, hospital pre admissions and following discharge.
Update 1 July 2020: The return of our Day Tripper service will wait a little longer. Due to the recent outbreak in Victoria, we will keep our Day Tripper program on hold until we review the situation again in mid July. We hope to open up bookings again soon.
Our Day Tripper door to door social outings for seniors will return from 6 July.
Whilst we are pleased to open bookings for our Day Tripper bus once again, it will be a modified program to allow our clients to socialise safely and ensure the utmost precaution and care is taken.
Initially, our Day Trips will operate five days per week to mostly outdoor locations and shopping trips. As always, our friendly caring staff includes a nurse on board who will be managing and following social distancing and hygiene guidelines.
Every year in Australia, skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers and approximately two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70*.
Non-melanoma skin cancer is more common in men, with almost double the incidence compared to women.
Excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, melanoma is the third most common cancer in Australians. In 2015, 13, 694 Australians were diagnosed with melanoma.
Unless there is something of specific concern, the best time of year to have a skin check is during Autumn or Winter when the skin has seen less sun.
