Older Person’s Council Convention

The Older Person’s Council Convention was held in Trim, County Meath on 12th & 13th May.


Excellent presentations were given on assistive technology in the home and on crime prevention by Laois/ Offaly Garda division’s Graham Kavanagh.


Professor Rose Anne Kenny , founding Principal investigator on the experience of aging in Ireland, Deirdre Lang, Director of Nursing with the HSE and Aine Brady, CEO, 3rd Age Foundation gave presentations which were informative & insightful and followed the convention theme of “ Live Well, Be Well”


The information they presented and the sources of information they shared will inform our thinking when we prepare our new Age Friendly County strategy.


We are looking for groups and individuals to complete a survey across the pillars of the Age friendly Program. This survey will help inform us and help us build a strategy to make Laois a better place to grow old in.
