Keys to Better Ageing: Free Seniors Event

The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District’s Older Persons’ Mental Health Service based at Prince of Wales Hospital, in partnership with Randwick City Council, is set to hold its annual forum for the senior community on Wednesday, 25 October, with this year’s theme ‘Better Brains, Better Bodies, Better Ageing’.

The free event, held from 10am to 1pm at The Juniors, Kingsford aligns with this year’s Alzheimer’s Disease International World Alzheimer’s Report message, that up to 40% of projected dementia cases could be delayed or avoided by addressing 12 risk factors. 

The forum boasts a program of some of Australia’s pre-eminent academics and leaders in the field of ageing including world-renowned clinician and researcher Professor Henry Brodaty AO, Honorary Medical Officer of the Older Persons’ Mental Health Service.
