Council, in conjunction with the NSW Health Service, is providing a free information session to promote healthy ageing, including presentations by qualified health professionals – a doctor, physiotherapist and dietician. Topics will include healthy ageing, improving strength and balance, medication use and falls risk factors.
Falls for those over 65 can lead to a loss of independence, reduced quality of life or even worse. I strongly encourage our senior residents to come along to this free session and find out what you can do to avoid becoming one of these statistics. The session will be held on Thursday 1st April, 2010 at Eastlakes Community Hall in Florence Avenue, Eastlakes. It’s on between 9.00am to 12.30pm and will be followed by a light lunch. All participants will receive a free “Healthy Ageing Goodie Bag” and there’s a chance to win one of the lucky door prizes. So we can cater everyone we need you to book, which you can be calling Pauline or Therese at our Aged Services Section on 9669 4640.
