Connecting Well - Older Women's Wellness Expo
As part of the Sutherland Shire Council 2017 Seniors Festival program, OWN NSW, together with a collaboration of local community services will be hosting Connecting Well, a wellness expo for older women. Connecting Well will be held at the Sutherland Entertainment Centre on Thurs 30th March.
The expo will be a free community event that aims to promote the wellbeing of older women, increase community connections and motivate positive ageing.
Attendees will have the opportunity to browse a range of stalls, peddle themselves a smoothie on the Blender Bikes, treat themselves to a range of free massage treatments, knit a few rows in the community knitting circle, and participate in mini classes such as tai chi and gentle hula hooping for seniors.
The expo will feature guest speakers on a variety of topics including Safe Online Dating for Older Women and What Neuroscience can Teach us about Wellbeing. A highlight of the event will be a public forum on The Healthy Female Body, with perspectives and recommendations from expert panellists. Forum discussions will be facilitated by Diana Bernard from Senior’s Rights Service.
