With elderly Victorians currently equating for 15 per cent of the state’s population, the need for discussions around the emotional, physical and financial challenges associated with ageing are increasing. To help residents navigate the ageing minefield, a free information seminar will take place on Monday 4 May at Sandringham Yacht Club from 2pm.
Hosted by Prestige Inhome Care, the two-hour seminar, aptly titled ‘Ageing with Independence’, aims to arm event attendees with expert knowledge across the aged care, legal and financial industries so Victorians can make educated decisions for the future whilst maintaining their independence.
Featuring guest speakers including Prestige Inhome Care CEO Nick McDonald and Vista Financial Group Financial Planner Sonia Dallimore, the seminar is open to elderly residents and their families or those wanting to know more about how to tackle the ageing process.
