Travel insurance for elderly passengers for long haul journey

Any recommendations for travel insurance for going to Oz for the older traveller? This is for my parents, one in their late seventies and the other early eighties, with some medical conditions to consider. I know some companies have an over-75/80 age limit (Post Office for one, I think) but wondered if anyone could recommend companies that are good for this kind of requirement. Single-trip cover is fine, fortunately, since I know anything else would be pretty much impossible. Thanks in advance.

Daily Telegraph article may help.

I think my nan (who's recently turned 80) goes for Age Concern?

Thanks, lily, Pesto and Spandex. The article is helpful and Age Concern do look good. It's useful to have the upper age limits clearly stated as I have been partway through getting quotes before only to hit this hurdle.
