The Franklin Integration Project Group is well underway with the planning of Franklin’s seventh annual Positive Ageing Expo.
The Project Group has secured the involvement of most of the groups, individuals, and service organisations that took part in the successful 2011 Expo, and guarantees this year there will again be some new ones to inform and entertain. In total there will be around 100 of them waiting to greet and help visitors on the day. Arguably, this is the biggest event of its kind in New Zealand with up to 2000 visitors expected on the day.
In particular there will be advice, help, and information available across a great many topics of relevance and importance to older people. This includes advice on residential care options and alternatives, resources and equipment for everyday living with a range of impairments or disabilities, information on volunteering, support to and for carers, and even professionals providing health screening and advice on healthy lifestyles.
On the fun side, we will be showcasing line dancing, Tai Chi, and yes we will have the belly dancers, as well as a range of hobbies, crafts, sports, and a variety of exercises to help keep you happier and healthier.
As with last year, admission will be totally free and there will be free refreshments available throughout the day courtesy of those wonderful RSA ladies. There will even be free draws for prizes and surprise gifts. We will make available free transport for those unable to get to the Expo by other means from around Franklin.
