Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves for Uniting Melba 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 principle 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 in the Life & Times of Margaret Healy. In her continuing story we can hear that Margaret has had to face many trials in life and has done so with stoicism that we have come to associate with the “true-blue Aussie”.
Now in the twilight of her years, living alone and in retirement in Yarra Junction outside of Melbourne, she remains active in her local community at the age of 86 years of age.
But by now this should come as no surprise, because an active community interest is one of the many consistent themes throughout her life and throughout her story!
