A conference for older people in Liverpool will be promoting the theme of Ping Pong for the Mind – a system of keeping mentally activate to stay healthy in old age.
Social housing provider, Riverside, is inviting 150 older people from across Merseyside to the conference, at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool on Wednesday 21 May. A range of service providers will be offering information and advice to help older people stay independent and healthy, so that they can remain in their own homes for longer.
Riverside’s LiveTime project is specifically aimed at fostering independence and health for older people living in its neighbourhoods.
Jane Mindar is LiveTime manager and leads in this area. “We are looking forward to another great conference with speakers from the health and housing sectors coming together to promote healthier lives for longer,” said Jane. “Britain’s ageing population can have a huge impact on families, social services, housing and health. We are working with our partners to promote good mental health, which can keep physical ailments at bay.”
Workshops at the conference include:
- long term health conditions
- cooking on a budget
- life enhancing technologies
- every contact counts
- Wills and Probate.
