Seniors Week Activities
Seniors Week will run from 17th - 24th March 2013. NSW Seniors Week is an annual NSW Government campaign presented by Ageing Disability and Home Care (ADHC) and Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.
The theme for NSW Seniors Week is Live Life! and reflects the celebration of life, achievements, relationships and activities of seniors in the community.
NSW Seniors Week provides seniors with opportunities to be active and healthy, be independent and be valued in our society through a range of free or discounted events held for seniors throughout the region.
