The Australian Positive Ageing Resource Centre - PARC - website is designed to provide recommendations, resources, and inspiration to older people and the people that care about them.

Ageing is inevitable but the pace at which the physical changes occur can be slowed with the right activity, diet, medication and social interaction.

The PARC website uses a validated Frailty screening tool and customised questions to assess where individuals could use support in managing the effects of ageing. PARC then produces a summary of the results and a series of individual recommendations.

The PARC website is funded by an Aged Care Service Improvement and Healthy Ageing Grant from the Federal Department of Health http://www.health.gov.au/. It is developed by researchers from Monash University’s School of Primary Health Care http://www.med.monash.edu.au/sphc/ and Benetas http://www.benetas.com.au/research-opinion.
