We’re pleased to reveal our poster for Older People’s Day 2018, taking place on Tuesday 2nd October, 10am – 3pm at Falkirk Town Hall. We hope this exciting and bright new design captures the feel of the day, and would ask everyone to share it amongst the people they know.
(Caption: The Older People’s Day 2018 event poster, detailing the event information.)
We can also now confirm the first of our stallholders for the event.
Our partners from Solicitors for Older People Scotland will be back with information on Power of Attorney and their range of legal services for older people, and will be giving one of the new presentations on the day.
They will be joined by:
- Falkirk and Clackmannanshire Carers Centre, who provide support to carers across both areas
- Outside the Box, offering various support to those looking to make a difference in their communities
- CSREC’s Dementia and Care in Our Communities project, which looks to understand the experiences of people affected by dementia from minority ethnic communities in the Forth Valley
For the first time, we’ll also be featuring a demonstration from Live, Laugh, Breathe!, a local laughter yoga class which aims to help people develop increased energy, better immune response and increased ability to deal with stress in a healthy way.
Don’t forget, you can follow all our Older People’s Day 2018 updates and activities on the new OPD Falkirk website. We encourage everyone who would like to come along on the day to book their place via the Eventbrite page, to ensure they have the chance to meet the people they want to speak with.
There’s also still time to contribute to our Older Human Rights Champions project and tell us about the people you know who have worked for an upheld human rights in Falkirk! We will then display them at the event, celebrating and promoting everything older people have done to help make the lives of others better.
