We are delighted to announce that, in partnership with Solicitors for Older People Scotland, we will be holding the FREE 2016 Older People’s Day drop-in event on Friday 30th September, 10am – 2pm at the Forth Valley Sensory Centre, Camelon.
Older People’s Day is a celebration of older people’s achievements and contributions to our society and economy, working to challenge stereotypes and promote positive attitudes to ageing.
“We look forward to building on the success of last year’s event, and once again welcoming older people to receive information about services available to them,” says Claire Bernard, Partnership Manager at CVS Falkirk.
The event will feature an exhibition hall, with stalls from various organisations who provide support, services and information for older people, their families and carers.
