Secret #44 – Growing Older and Living Dangerously
Growing Older and Living Dangerously (GOLD) is a Brisbane City Council Active and Healthy Lifestyle program. It provides free or low-cost activities for senior residents.
All GOLD events that incur a fee now honour the Queensland Government Companion Card. This allows free participation for anyone accompanying a person with disability who requires attendant care support.
Council also runs GOLD ‘n’ Kids, for seniors and children (aged four years and over).
Bookings are essential for most activities. To make a booking, check the booking details row. Select the event and phone the listed number to secure your place. For further information, phone Council on 07 3403 8888.
After some research I found many councils doing similar programs either directly or via community centers. Just enter aged activities councils or your local council to find out what they offer.
You can join a Heart Foundation Walking group. Find a local walking group near you.
Now that you have more time the idea is to learn or teach others. I have had a great time learning about how to write this book
Search councils and local organizations and get involved.
