Positive Ageing Journey

The 2019 Positive Ageing Journey will build on the success of the previous events and will provide a day of thought-provoking, interactive, educational presentations. The event aims to give you the tools to live vivaciously and be full of life well past retirement.

Currently more than 1 million people living in Queensland are aged over 55 years, making up 25 per cent of the total population. The over 55’s aspire to remain living independently in their own homes for as long as possible. To enable this, they need access to information and advice about services that support their independence and enhance their experience of ageing.

A variety of presentations will be included that will aim to educate the audience, topics will include:

  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Cultivating strong and relationships and social connections
  • Enhancing mental wellbeing
