Tuesday 13 April from 6:30pm to 8pm

Healthy relationships as we age

A free webinar that will help explore the boundaries of healthy relationships as we get older, what may indicate that an older person’s relationship is no longer healthy, and the signs of elder abuse. This webinar is open to older community members and their families.

Glen Sorensen from Age Communications will facilitate this event, which aims to help raise awareness of elder abuse in Eastern Sydney.

Representatives from three local services will share how they respond in situations where there may be abuse of an older person:

  • Dr Patricia Reyes, Geriatric Flying Squad, War Memorial Hospital

  • Francis Duffy, Relationships Australia

  • A speaker from The Deli Women & Children's Centre

There will also be an open question and answer session for participants. We will have experts available from the NSW Ageing and Disability Commission, NSW Police and Seniors Rights Service to answer your questions.

Online via Zoom. Register.
