Re-imagining Ageing – Gympie Forum

Join Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland in a discussion on ageing well on Monday 25 March, 10:00AM at Gympie Community Place.

Over the next 50 years, we will see a steady rise in the numbers of people aged 65 years and over. Will our services, neighbourhoods, shops and community hubs meet the needs of older people? What helps you to age well, and what makes it difficult?

COTA Queensland will facilitate an informal discussion with a brief overview of changing demographics, age-friendly concepts, and sharing what others have been saying are priorities for ageing well in Queensland. We will explore how we are ageing now and how it might be different into the future.

Through interactive activities, we will explore topics including e.g., health, transport, cost of living, loneliness, personal safety, caring for others and employment. There will be group discussion on what is working well now in your community, and what needs to change to enable people to age well. You will be encouraged to share your views and experiences.

COTA Queensland will listen, prioritise what is important, and share summarised information to inform government priorities and community planning processes. This is a unique opportunity to influence future directions of ageing in Queensland.

This is a FREE event with morning tea provided. Places are limited, register today!
