LiveBetter Celebrates Seniors Festival in Orange
The largest senior’s festival in the Southern Hemisphere is coming to Orange and LiveBetter is ready to celebrate with seniors, inviting the community to see what is on offer at Anson Cottage.
“This year’s theme is ‘Reconnect’, and after months of isolation and social distancing, it’s time to come together and reconnect in person with activities that are both fun and keep your mind and body active,” says Anson Cottage Manager, Kristy Mansell.
“With a diverse range of experiences on offer at the Cottage, the open day will inspire seniors to be active, socialise, and share their skills and wisdom, all while connecting with their peers.”
The Anson Cottage Orange will hold the open day on Wednesday 30 March 2022 showcasing the various activities they run daily including
- Arts and craft
- Chair yoga
- Strength Training
- Social activities
- Cooking skills
- Memory Games
“We are passionate about providing meaningful social connections and life-long learning for our seniors,” continues Ms Mansell. “Between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm the doors will be open to the public to come and try the various activities we host.
“Most people associate the Cottage with being a respite service but we are so much more than that! We provide day programs to all seniors with a view to helping maintain their physical, mental and social wellbeing and ultimately… LiveBetter!
“We’d also like the seniors of Orange to tell us what events and activities they’d like us to host. Maybe it’s a tech tutorial to help them reconnect with friends and family? We’re open to all ideas!”
Morning tea will be provided on the day.
