Art of Ageing: Meet caretaker Lola

LOLA is an everyday senior who represents the wonderful diversity of NSW's older residents.

Her story reflects an Australia unique to its older generation - a contrast of values, emotions and personality in an ever-changing landscape.

Seniors News, with the help of the NSW Government, will be telling Lola and many more seniors' stories in a six week series.

Their stories can also be glimpsed in a 30-image exhibition that will be touring NSW throughout 2018 and 2019.


The story of caretaker Lola

Born in Wagga Wagga in 1941, Lola has lived there throughout her life.

Lola started her family of three children in Wagga, and her family has now expanded to three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

At 76, Lola continues to work at the Wagga Ronald McDonald House as a caretaker. She has worked there since it opened 12 years ago.

When speaking with Lola, she discussed how important physical activity and keeping active is. "I usually come to the pool around four times a week. In my other spare time I look after my veggie gardens at home."
