Community Wellbeing

New Community Walkability Checklist

People who live in ‘walkable communities’ are two times as likely to get enough physical activity. ‘Walkability’ describes the factors within the built environment that make it convenient, comfortable, and safe to walk, which can either help or discourage walking.

Rate the walkability of your local area or regular walking route with the Heart Foundation's Community Walkability Checklist - an easy way for you to assess how walk-able your community is.

Advanced Care Directive (ACD)

An Advance Care Directive is a legal document that gives those who care for the frail-aged a clear understanding of their needs and wishes, should they lose the ability to communicate for themselves. Once completed, this document can be lodged with family, health care providers, GP's and the local hospital.

Appointments are necessary and can be made by contacting Southern Fleurieu Health Service on 8552 0600.

A volunteer from the Southern Fleurieu Health Service will be in attendance, at the Alexandrina Council offices in Goolwa, every Monday between 10.00am and 1.00pm, to provide the Advance Care Directive (ACD) Assist Program.

The Advance Care Directive Assist Program is conducted by a group of volunteers and provides support to individuals needing help to complete these forms. Witnessing of completed ACD forms is undertaken through the Fleurieu Justice Association to ensure compliance with relevant legal requirements. The documentation will be available for purchase from Alexandrina Council.

Advance Care Directive (ACD) kits are available for purchase prior or at the time of appointment, from the Goolwa & Strathalbyn Office.

  • Kits are $5.00 each and include 2 application forms
  • Additional forms are available for purchase at $1.00 each
