Positive Ageing in 2018

Council’s Positive Ageing Program is coming to life in 2018 with a variety of activities and programs to inform and connect older residents in Kingborough.
Tuesday Talks will resume, starting with the Legalities of Ageing from 10.30am, 6 February at the Kingston LINC. This talk is provided by Legal Aid Tasmania and provides older residents with advice and details of the assistance which is available if or when needed. Come along to this free event and hear what help is available.
Demystifying Dementia is the topic for the Tuesday Talk on 6 March. This session reassures participants that becoming forgetful does not mean they have Dementia.
Healthy Connections is a new six week program held at the Snug Community Hall on Wednesday mornings, starting from February 21. The program has been designed for people to learn about health topics for improved quality of life. With the foundation that ‘knowledge is power’ the program includes a variety of subjects to empower and boost confidence to maintain health and approach getting older with a positive attitude. Subjects include basic first aid, preventing falls, pain management even a Dying to Know session, which opens up much needed discussion around the inevitability of death and dying.
Parking in Snug is plentiful and guests can enjoy a walk on the beach or through the surrounding bushland before or after the talks. Sessions are free, however registrations are required and morning tea is always provided. The full program has been published on the Healthy Connections Event page.
