Local service information for the Shire’s senior citizens has become easier to find with the launch of the 2017-19 Wingecarribee Seniors Directory.
Entitled ‘Positive Ageing’ the directory contains a comprehensive list of activities and contacts for seniors living in the Southern Highlands.
Council’s Ageing and Disability Officer Nicola Robson said the new directory was an invaluable tool for the region’s seniors.
“This directory provides information on a range of services including emergency and government agencies, health and transport providers and support and leisure groups.
“Importantly, it also provides our Shire’s seniors with social and volunteering contacts which enriches the lives of both the participants and the broader community,” said Ms Robson.
More than 8,000 copies of ‘Positive Ageing’ will be distributed across the Shire at multiple locations including Council’s Moss Vale Civic Centre and libraries, local pharmacies, doctors surgeries, aged care providers, clubs and community organisations.
An online version can be found at www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/seniors-directory.
The latest edition of the Wingecarribee Seniors Directory was made possible through Council’s annual budget with assistance from local advertisers.
“Special mention should also be reserved for the Seniors Community Reference Group for all their input,” said Ms Robson.
“I would remind our local community groups and organisations that should there be any changes to their group’s details, to contact Council so the amendments can be incorporated in future hardcopy and online editions,” added Ms Robson.
