The Living Later Life Conference

AgeUK Somerset are holding a free one day conference on 26th October at Taunton Racecourse.

Their website says:

This conference will tackle the issues that matter most when it comes to ensuring  a good quality of later life: housing, mutually-supportive relationships, retaining independence and control, enjoying an active lifestyle, health and social care services, living well with long-term conditions and much more.  It will encourage us all to envisage and plan for how we want to live our later life.

 

Listen to a number of high-profile speakers, including:

 

  • Sir Andrew Dillon, CEO, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence
  • Professor Ann Bowling, Professor of Health Sciences, University of Southampton
  • Dr Chrystalina Antoniades, Department of Clinical Neurology, University of Oxford
  • Tony Watts, OBE, Chair of South West Forum on Ageing and Founding Editor of Mature Times
  • Conference Chair – Clinton Rogers, Somerset Correspondent for BBC Points West

Age Action Alliance Photo Competition

Did I mention I’m a member of the Age Action Alliance?

The Age Action Alliance is the network for partnership working and practical action to improve older people’s lives…together

They recently held a photographic competition, looking for positive images of later life.

There are lots of really good pictures in the new gallery on the website, but this one is my favorite.

Enjoy!
