Close to 500 people attended a forum designed to boost the wellbeing of seniors in Kingsford recently.

The Ageing with Purpose Forum was organised by South Eastern Sydney Local Health Services’ aged mental health service team to provide people with more options as they age.

Held on 31st October at The Juniors on Anzac Parade, four aged care service providers were in attendance, including South Eastern Community Connect (SECC), Benevolent Society, Holdsworth Community, and Bondi Junction Neighbourhood Centre.

Furthermore, guest speaker Ita Buttrose spoke on ageing with purpose, and led a panel discussion which included examples of positive ageing: Diana “Bubbles” Fisher, Robina Beard, and Bill Bishop.

Speakers also addressed topics of managing your mood later in life, communication and assertiveness, and visibility in later life.

SECC’s Aged Care Marketing Coordinator Tina Tung presented to the forum on the work we do to support people on their journey.

Other participants included the UNSW Ageing Research team, Macular Degeneration and Healthy Bone Association, and Dementia Research Team.
