Celebrate the power of you at Queensland Seniors Week

THIS year's Queensland Seniors Week (18-26 August) is a recognition of the importance of seniors within our community. It also aims to involve people of all ages to work together to create age-friendly communities.

This month's Seniors Newspapers has published a special lift out feature throughout our Queensland editions. Inside the pages you will find a rich and varied list of activities, classes and entertainment scheduled throughout the week. We have also included profiles of inspirational people, the latest wellbeing news, together with new styles of living options available to seniors and some stunning travel articles.

Queensland Council on the Ageing (COTA) CEO Mark Tucker-Evans pointed out there are now 1.5 million Queenslanders over the age of 50 and we are defying the images of what life is like in our 50s, 60s, 70s, 80, 90s and beyond.

"Seniors Week is a great opportunity to challenge the stereotypes of ages," he said.

We at Seniors Newspaper agree, and we hope that our information and articles reveal the authentic story of the older person in 2018.

The Queensland Government has backed Seniors Week with several subsidised events, so don't miss out - stretch your mind, body and spirit and join in the festivities. There really is something for everyone.
