REDLANDS REGION

From the Mayor of Redland City

Seniors Week August 2016

Welcome to Queensland Seniors Week 2016, a celebration of our older generations and their contributions to our community.

With a population boasting more seniors than children, the Redlands offers seniors a healthy, active and connected lifestyle. We believe in a future of possibilities for seniors and strive to create strong social infrastructure, improve wellbeing and increase social and economic opportunities for our older population.

Seniors play an important role in our society. Their knowledge, wisdom and life experiences are invaluable across the community. Every day, seniors selflessly contribute countless hours to their families and their communities, enhancing the quality of life for those around them.

Redland City Council is committed to supporting seniors to age well and age independently. We strive to strengthen the community as a whole and support sustainable solutions for the seniors sector. Through programs such as Home Assist Secure Services, we help about 6,500 people every year (most of whom are seniors) stay in their homes longer by installing ramps and support rails to improve access, and changing light bulbs and smoke alarm batteries.

As the number of seniors in the Redlands grows to more than 50,000 in coming years, community support is paramount to meet the needs and aspirations of our ageing population.

Organisations such as Redlands District Committee on the Ageing (RDCOTA) are crucial to the future of our region. We value our partnerships with RDCOTA and other key seniors' organisations and appreciate your contribution to the direction and support of our ageing population.

Congratulations to RDCOTA and all the organisations involved for organising this year's celebrations for Seniors Week. Your commitment to maximising support, minimising barriers and recognising the value of your generation is to be applauded. I encourage you to continue embracing the creativity, imagination and anticipation of ageing well in the Redlands.

Cr Karen Williams
