Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A FREE work­shop about pos­i­tive ag­ing will be held at the Proser­pine Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Septem­ber 25.

The talk is be­ing put on by Townsville Medi­care and guests are asked to ar­rive at 10.45am for an 11am start.

Proser­pine Com­mu­nity Cen­tre co-or­di­na­tor Cathie Evans said a light lunch would also be sup­plied and she en­cour­aged any el­derly peo­ple in the re­gion to go along and learn about how to stay in their own homes for longer.

“There will be lots of in­for­ma­tion avail­able at the talk and it’s about teach­ing el­derly peo­ple strate­gies how to re­main in their own homes,” she said.

“I think it’s great to have a talk like this in the area, we have an ag­ing pop­u­la­tion here and it’s a great thing for peo­ple to be able to stay in their own homes.”

The talk will run for around half an hour and all are wel­come to at­tend.

To RSVP con­tact Cathie Evans at the cen­tre on 4945 5915.
