Free seminar for retirees during Seniors Week at the Libraries

Published:

Local seniors can access free legal, financial and in-home care services information, as part of Noosa and Cooroy Libraries’ workshops during Seniors Week in August.

Designed specifically for seniors and their immediate family, the workshops will be presented by three industry experts including a Financial Advisor Aged Care Specialist, a Solicitor and a Community Care Manager.

Library Programs Officer, Liz Bleechmore said the workshops are aimed at helping seniors maintain their independence and lifestyle in later years.

“These workshops are popular with retirees, seniors and their immediate families because they bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding of critical financial and legal implications that are important to seniors’ decision making as they move into a different phase of life.

“The workshops are very beneficial because of the breadth of information covered, especially for those who are looking to enter into a contract for a retirement village, lifestyle park or aged care facility.

“There is also general information about accessing home care services and government-funded support programs such as Home Care Packages.

“The major changes to lifestyle and living arrangements for seniors can be stressful and that can also affect immediate family. We encourage those with aging parents to come along to the Libraries for these fantastic workshops to make the transition into this phase of life easier.”

The workshops take place at Cooroy Library on Tuesday 20 August and Noosaville Library on Wednesday 21 August at 10-11.30am as part of Seniors Week. It’s a free event but bookings are required: www.libraries.noosa.qld.gov.au or 5329 6555.
