Talk to cover many aspects of living life as a senior
A talk on ageing gracefully and passionately, targeting over 40s, will be held in Exmouth next week by the Council on the Ageing.
COTA seniors housing community education officer Bruce Carstairs will be at the old Durack Tafe meeting room from 10am on Monday, November 21 to chat on the topics of housing, security and striking out.
Mr Carstairs said the talk would be framed around a broad approach to ageing and continuing to have fun.
“I really hope to share a whole raft of knowledge around residential aged care, around equipment, and around how you can stay in your own home,” he said.
“There are ways of remaining as young as possible but bad diet, working long hours, not maintaining physical fitness, those sort of things can lead into ageing poorly.
“This is about letting people know what’s out there in terms of home and support services.”
Mr Carstairs said he would also be presenting some of the latest ECU research on muscle density and how exercise could get people back on their feet quicker after accidents.
“What this research is showing is that even with a mild exercise program, you can speed up recovery much quicker.”
Morning tea will be provided at the event.
The talk is being jointly hosted by COTA, the Shire of Exmouth and the Seniors’ Housing Centre.
