The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

CORK County Older Peo­ples Coun­cil will host an event at the Charleville Park Ho­tel on Mon­day, Novem­ber 20 to pro­mote health, wealth and hap­pi­ness as we age.

Top­ics for dis­cus­sion will in­clude en­ti­tle­ments and al­lowances for older peo­ple, changes to home care pack­ages in Ire­land, pro­mot­ing healthy nu­tri­tion and diet.

There will also be a mo­ti­va­tional speaker and the gath­er­ing will be ad­dressed by the chair of the Cork County Older Peo­ples Coun­cil. The MC for the event will Cllr Ian Doyle of Charleville.

Cork Older Peo­ples Coun­cil was es­tab­lished in 2015 as part of Cork Age Friendly County Pro­gramme. The coun­cil is made up of an ex­ec­u­tive and a wider com­mit­tee who meet twice a year to cel­e­brate pos­i­tive age­ing and their achieve­ments.

The coun­cil aims to be as in­clu­sive as pos­si­ble by rep­re­sent­ing peo­ple from all walks of life, in­clud­ing peo­ple who can’t par­tic­i­pate di­rectly in the de­ci­sion mak­ing process, such as those liv­ing in res­i­den­tial care or suf­fer­ing from Alzheimer’s or De­men­tia.

This is a very ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple from across North Cork to learn, net­work and share ideas.

The event will com­mence at 10 am and is free to at­tend. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion con­tact Shane Win­ters at 086-0842356 or shaneawn@gmail. com.
