Clare’s Older People’s Council, supported by Clare County Council’s Age Friendly Clare and Healthy Clare programmes, hosted a very successful Health and Wellbeing Age Expo at Treacy’s West County Hotel, Ennis, on Friday, 30th June.

Over 500 people turned out to the Age Expo which showcased the supports and services available in County Clare that are of interest and use to older people. The Mid-West Community Healthcare – Integrated Care Programme Older Persons, Active Ennis, Clare Sports Partnership, Clare Libraries, Local Link, Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland and Sláinte an Chláir were just some examples of those displaying at the event.

Guest speakers discussed the new ‘Healthy Age Friendly Homes’ initiative and ‘Preparing for a Healthy Retirement’.

Attendees also had an opportunity to participate in a singing taster session, ‘Active Ageing’ classes and to attend a cookery demonstration.

The Irish Heart Foundation was carrying out free health checks during the event too and Chime provided free hearing tests.

The Expo was a platform for Clare’s older people to engage with organisations delivering health and wellbeing supports and services across the county. Attendees were eager to learn more about what’s available in the county and to try out taster sessions too throughout the day.
