Positive Aging Expo

The Positive Aging Expo promises to have something of interest to seniors, their families or whanau or anyone heading towards retirement.


After attracting record crowds and receiving a TrustPower Community Award
commendation in 2014 the seventh Positive Aging Expo 2015 will build on its
winning formula. The expo showcases Nelson and Tasman’s recreational, health and
social services that make ageing a positive experience. Along with 70+
stallholders there will be seminars, demonstrations and a chance to have a go
at a range of activities as well as getting quick health checks. 
There’s plenty of
groups, clubs, services and government agencies that help give us all the best
opportunity to age positively. The Expo provides the opportunity to come along
and talk to them, find out what they do and how to get involved.



The Seminars will be a again a highlight from the opening introduction from  



the Minister for Senior Citizens Hon Maggie Barry ONZM, to the first seminar



‘Good Grief’ by Lois Tonkin. The author of the book ‘Riding the Storms’, Lois
will discuss how we can cope with and get through grief. Grief is not only
about our responses when someone dies, but about losing anything that is
important to us. The second and final seminar is Positive Ageing in Action by Mark Inglis.
Mark’s life experiences and ability to face adversity provides plenty of qualifications
to inspire and challenge:






The event is aimed at older adults and their families, admission is free with complimentary
tea, coffee and biscuits provided, lunch will be available for purchase.
