‘Radical’ seniors enjoy ride on wild side
IN THE spirit of aging creatively and challenging myths and stereotypes about older people – and aged care in particular – SCCA recently held a Biker Barbecue.
The Marian Grove Ukulele Band cranked up the sound and vintage cars and bikes were on display.
Lars from A1 Coffs Coast Tours donated time and made the day of some lucky riders, including 90-yearold Coral Hasler (pictured), who had some fun on a Harley-Davidson.
The SCCA Creative Ageing project is diverse and has been named Radical Ageing because radical means departing from tradition to affect the fundamental nature of something.
‘Radical’ is also a fun word rarely associated with older people.
People who enter aged care can feel ‘invisible’ in our society, so Radical Ageing 2017 was formed to allow creative expression as well as a form of activism where older people can create, contribute and have an impact on their community and the world at large.
