Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves
for Wesley Mission Victoria and podcast through the Toorak Times and Tagg.
Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views and opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principal of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.
This is the 3rd, and final program, on the story of Joy Pagalos. In this part of her story we learn about the condition of Cystic Fibrosis as well as the Cystic Fibrosis Associations work and her job which she loved and she is very proud of how she helped build the Association up. Sadly, it came to an end which she did not deserve.
Joy shares the tale of how she then came to work for another community based organisation, one dealing with homeless people and she takes the opportunity to correct some misunderstandings about these folk. Joy covers a lot of ground, and, why not? She remained active and in the workforce for as long as her body would allow her.
