Centre for Positive Ageing

Age well with our positive ageing services

Our Centre for Positive Ageing focuses on helping you make the most of your ageing experience – whatever your circumstances may be.

We understand that older age does not always go as planned. Many people experience chronic diseases, loss of loves ones and various other challenges. This then often begs the question, “what is so positive about ageing?”.

Well, there are many aspects of older age that are positive and we hope to show you how to make the most of them. But we don’t gloss over the challenges – in fact, we will hit them head-on and provide realistic and practical tips to help you age as positively as possible.
