The first event explores the theme of KINDNESS, followed by philosophical discussion and reflection. The event will be presented by Annette Subhani of New Pathways Life Coaching and Training. We could all do with a little more kindness and tenderness. The second event covers the subject of planning for your future health care needs which is so important as we don't know what's around the corner. A spokesperson from Alfred Health Advance Care Planning Service will discuss how planning ahead can ensure you receive care that's consistent with your goals, values, beliefs and preferences. This is especially important for it to be put in place for a time when you may no longer be able to communicate these decisions.

It might sound a bit dismal that this event is in recognition of Dying to Know Day (D2KDay) on Sunday 8 August; but being prepared is always a better option. The last event is super important as strokes are Australia's second single greatest killer with over 60,000 strokes occurring each year. Join a spokesperson from Stroke Foundation and find out about the different types of stroke, how to recognise the signs and what to do if someone is having a stroke and how to prevent stroke. National Stroke week is 31 Aug-7 Sep 2020 and you can look out for other events in your state via the link given. Please check all event links for further information.
