Just a few photos from the Care and Ageing Expo. Always a wonderful opportunity to catch up with colleagues like Mark Teale, CEO of COTA and Verity James, the MC for the Expo…and above all else, being able to speak with people about how to think and plan to stay well at home now and into the future!
A big thank you to LASA and the team for inviting me to speak at the Care and Ageing Expo last weekend. It was great fun and a great crowd! Hope to see you all again next year!

City of Belmont Seniors Planning for the Next Season!
It certainly has been a busy winter here in Perth for Planning for the Next Season!
Over the course of two days, about fifty (FIFTY!) seniors from the City of Belmont attended Planning for the Next Season workshops on 14th and 22nd June. The feedback from the sessions was outstanding. What’s more, more older people are now thinking and planning about how they can stay home well now and into the future with a good understanding about how the aged care system works and how they can be clear about articulating their needs with providers.
Well done to all the participants and a special thanks to Helen O’Sullivan at the City of Belmont for her great work with seniors and people with disability in the City of Belmont.

City of Belmont Seniors Planning for the Next Season
I hope everyone has been enjoying the beautiful autumn weather we are having here in Perth! I love the warm weather, but I have to admit, I do like a bit of chill in the air in the morning.
Today, I had the opportunity to speak to a group of providers with the Melville Aged Services Network. They are a great group of folks and really working hard to help people get the most out of the services they offer.
Don’t forget to register for the next Planning for the Next Season workshop. It will be held on 31 May from 10:00 am. This will be a 3.5 hour workshop which will include the workshop, participant’s workbook and light lunch for $50. Parking at the venue is free. Why not bring a friend?
