Positive Ageing

Mavis never socialised and was labelled "aggressive" by the staff at this residential aged care facility. Yet Sue Hendy managed to get Mavis along to a regular 4pm session of cards. How? This heartwarming talk will expand your view on what it means to 'age positively' and challenge you to think about how you perceive growing old.

Fantastic resource.

Very good resource for understanding that once you age, you don't have to be old... you are still a very valued member of a community (family, group etc).

Informativee presentation. I believe people's attitudes towards the elderly need to change. Our seniors have a welath of knowledge and life experience in times that many of us had not even been born yet. It's a shame that older people are often put into the 'forgotten' or 'too hard basket'. They are still a valuable asset to our community.
