This year’s Seniors Week continues the theme It’s on for young & old to further develop intergenerational connections within your community.
‘Seniors Week is a time for all Queenslanders to acknowledge and celebrate the valuable contributions seniors make in their communities. Whether as volunteers or in the workforce, seniors utilize their experiences and knowledge as carers, grandparents and community leaders. ‘ COTA Queensland Mark Tucker-Evans said.
“For some living in rural and remote communities, Seniors Week is the one time of year they get to connect with long lost friends.
“For others, Seniors Week is a way to assist in combating social isolation through the discovery of programs and activities, creation of new friendships and in remaining an active member of society. ”
“We appreciate that Seniors Week can only be a success through the hard work and efforts of people and organisations throughout the state. We are looking forward to working with everyone” said Mark.
