Positive Ageing

The Huon Valley Health and Wellbeing Strategy supports people of all ages to have fulfilling and meaningful connections and a sense of belonging to their community.

Positive Ageing is a process of maintaining a positive attitude, feeling good about yourself, keeping fit and healthy, and engaging fully in life as you age.

Huon Valley Council supports a number of positive ageing programs and activities throughout the valley and highly values the contributions of older residents across our community.

SENIORS WEEK

Seniors Week 12-18 October 2020

Official Events Guide now available online

It’s going to be great to get and about again in October catching up with old and new friends while enjoying some of the more than 300 events on offer around the state. For the first time around 30 events will be simultaneously live-streamed to those who cannot physically attend the events.  There will also be several online-only events..

Seniors Week will of course be a little different this year. All event organisers will be required to observe COVID safety plans covering things such as hygeine and social distancing. Patrons will have a personal responsibility to comply with COVID safety requirements in addition to facilities and measures implemented by organisers.
