The good news is that having a rich social life after 60 is absolutely possible – but, only if we take matters into our own hands! There are millions of wonderful people in the world who want to develop a friendship, people just like you. 

But, in order to find them, you need to face your fears, explore your passions, use your network and, most importantly, take a chance on reaching out to others.

Finding new friends after 60 can definitely be a challenge. But, if you face your fears, define what you are looking for in a friendship, make the most of your own network and reach out to people who share your interests, there is no need to be lonely. 

You deserve to have friendship in your life and I hope that you find people that make you truly happy!

Why Is This Here

During the writing of this book I talked to a lot of people and was quite surprised at how many, both men and women, were lonely. The main reason was that many of their friendships were based around work or events they were no longer able to participate in.

This is why in this book we are continually looking at community and social groups to get involved in to meet new people with similar interests to develop a friendship model.

New research from the Stanford Centre on Longevity confirms it, saying that social engagement promotes physical and mental health, while social isolation costs people both personal and medical problems. According to the study, “socially isolated individuals face health risks comparable to those of smokers.”

It Is A Great Time To Be A ‘Senior’ In Australia!

Every year in March New South Wales sets aside time to its senior citizens, honouring them as very important members of a ‘society for all ages’. Other states also have many Seniors events for their senior citizens.

This is one of the largest events for seniors in Sydney celebrating their lives, achievements and their continued involvement in society.

Put it on your calendar, and the fridge as a reminder because this is a time when government and the community join hands hosting special events in varying fields, like great entertainment, health, fitness, wellness art, technology, and sport.

All designed to help motivate seniors to participate and remain independent, healthy and active!

March in Sydney – Seniors week! Is your time! It is a definitely a wake-up call that shouts out to everyone that seniors should not be relegated to the fringes of society. This very special week helps spread the awareness that us seniors continue to contribution to society and we are essential.

This past year, seniors were recognised and honoured with the presentation of Local Achievement Awards for our invaluable contribution to our communities – a great gesture that truly validates the role seniors play in society!

This link takes you to the NSW Seniors week website and it tells you everything!

The total calendar of events, the days, dates and times are all listed, and you are invited to partake in the festivities. Concerts, laughter workshops, walking tours, fitness workshops, film screenings, social media workshops, cultural debates and more. These are just a few of the events that are exceedingly popular with the senior community.

The Sydney Seniors week helps encourage positivity in personality and disposition, it helps motivate seniors to stay active, fit and keep healthy.

We Seniors do understand and we realise the importance of keeping our minds active and keeping pace with the world, we like to dance, sing and smile and enjoy life today and while we are young at heart we still get a thrill from the good old days with music and movies of yesteryear!

It is well-known that being a senior in Australia is fun! Travel, Social and Entertainment plus friendships is prolific. Join one of the local Seniors Clubs soon.
