Elderly residents evacuated in Victoria

This week has seen more flooding in Australia as a quarter of the area of Victoria is under water. 245 residents of aged care facilities have been evacuated to safety as towns such as Rochester in central Victoria was inundated by floodwaters.

For those residents with dementia this was a difficult and confusing experience. For staff whose own homes were threatened it was also a difficult and stressful experience.

Can you tell us what happened to you? Do you have relatives in the flooded areas.

Queensland and Victoria now continue the cleanup of sodden homes and businesses.

Our thoughts are with you all.
