Having the freedom and choice in your senior years to live independently in your own home is important to both your health and happiness.
Jubilee Community Care is helping north-west residents do just that with the opportunity to learn more about what care and support is available at its Freedom and Choice in Ageing Expo on Wednesday, August 22.
The expo, during Seniors Week, will feature exhibits from northside businesses, community services and organisations providing products and services to older people.
Exhibitors will include a Stay Standing falls prevention facilitator, Bodytrack Exercise Physiology, Blamey Saunders hears, Star Express cleaning and property services, Michelle K Boutique and Gifts, and organisations showcasing mobility and daily living aids, assistive technologies and more.
Jubilee Community Care director Shaun Riley said sometimes a little bit of extra help was all people needed to remain in their own homes and neighbourhoods.
“Our organisation, based at Indoooroopilly, is a local not-for-profit one which has been caring for the elderly for almost 30 years,” Mr Riley said.
“We assist people to work out what support they need and tailor our services to meet those needs to help them remain in the community living safe, healthy, active and fulfilled lives.
“We have numerous clients from Ferny Hills to Keperra and surrounding suburbs to whom we provide care and support. “This expo will allow them, and others, to find organisations and products that will assist them in their daily living and help them to enrich later life.’’
The expo will be held from 10am – 3pm on Wednesday, August 22 at the Western Districts Football Club, 65 Sylvan Rd, Toowong.
