We believe everybody
deserves to enjoy life,
whatever their age
With ageing comes age-related concerns. That’s why Enliven’s Levin Home for War Veterans is offering monthly information sessions about age related topics for the Horowhenua community.
Exploring Ageing with Enliven is a free monthly information session covering topics relevant to elders and their families.
Provided by Levin Home for War Veterans, the new aged care initiative will be held one Wednesday per month at the home, located on the corner of Prouse and Matai Streets in Levin.
The first session, SeeHear, is on Wednesday 8 April at 3pm in the Veteran’s Arms lounge, through the main entrance of Levin Home.
SeeHear will cover everything there is to know about hearing aids, including how to handle them, cleaning and troubleshooting problems that could arise.
Levin Home manager Joanna Thomson says the information sessions were originally designed for staff, but they thought it would benefit elders, families and the wider community, too.
“We realised we need to share our knowledge to help families understand the care that is provided to older people.”
The sessions are suitable for anyone who would like more information on ageing issues. Each session will be taken by an expert guest speaker with a new topic each month.
“The sessions will cover topics concerning our elders, such as hearing aids, incontinence products, Parkinson’s, Dementia, protecting older people’s skin and more,” Joanna explains.
“Come along and boost your knowledge about ageing related topics. You might learn a thing or two that can benefit you or your loved one.”
Levin Home for War Veterans provides rest home, hospital, dementia care, respite and convalescent care.
The first Levin Home Exploring Ageing session will be held on Wednesday 8 April at 3pm. All are welcome to attend.
