An Aged Care Expo will be held in Millicent later this month as part of Council’s program of events to Celebrate Seniors.
The inaugural event will be held on Wednesday the 18th of October, and will provide the community with information about a range of services and health care opportunities available to Seniors in the region.
With free admission from 10 am until 2 pm, this Expo is a must see for Seniors seeking a wider understanding of what is available in their community to assist them.
In addition, it will provide an excellent opportunity for those working in Health or Aged Care to update their current knowledge and to browse amongst the many services and organisations represented at the Expo.
The Council on the Ageing (COTA) is providing 2 (45 minute) sessions in the Millicent Gallery, one at 11 am and the other at 1 pm. These information sessions will provide a valuable insight into the topics of ‘Maximising My Independence’ and ‘Moving Right Along - Older Drivers and Safer Vehicles’.
Wattle Range CEO, Ben Gower said “the Aged Care Expo will provide a unique opportunity for people of all ages to be better informed on the wide range of assistance options available to them in our community.”
Health Care Providers or Services in the region who may wish to be part of this Expo are welcome to contact Catarina Santos, Environmental Health Officer on 8733 0900 or by email on email@example.com. There is no charge for stall holders.
The full program for Celebrate Seniors can be obtained by visiting Council’s website www.wattlerange.sa.gov.au; Council's Facebook page, the Millicent Council Office or any of Council’s Visitor information Centres.
