Greg Mauldon

My name is Gregory Mauldon. I was born at Dennington (near Warrnambool) in the Western District of Victoria.

I had a limited education leaving school at 13, being apprenticed at 15 in the Printing Industry.

I am an avid reader. I have always been interested in learning, completing many Adult Education Courses such as Introduction to Philosophy, to hands on courses such as Welding and Carpentry courses. I am retired, but lead an active life.

U3A (University of the Third Age) and LAC (Life Activities Club), both Voluntary organisations, are clubs that I enjoy.

Helping older people are passions of mine. I usually become involved in Committees helping to run these organisations.

My wife Joyce (now deceased) was a Registered Nurse who spent most of her Nursing Career in Geriatrics.

I saw a lot of unfortunate circumstances in Nursing Homes where patients had poor quality of life.

I believe people should have the means available to them to end their own life peacefully and with dignity.

Despite strong public support and lobbying over many decades our elected representatives have failed to act. It's time to make them listen.
