Apex Celebrates International Older Persons Day
Apex, in partnership with Choice Housing and supported by Derry and Strabane Policing and Community Safety Partnership, hosted an information event in the Maldron Hotel on Monday 3rd October to celebrate International Day of Older Persons.
The event focussed on health and wellbeing for older persons in the North West and was attended by a number of agencies who provided information and advice on a wide range of health related subjects
The Chair of the Policing and Community Safety Partnership, Mr Gus Hastings spent time speaking to attendees and commended the event for recognising the positive contribution older people have made to their communities and indeed the contribution they are still making. He commented and congratulated the many agencies involved in organising this event. It’s always great to meet our elderly citizens and I’m delighted to see such an entertaining and informative event being put together for their benefit.”
We are committed to the safety, health and wellbeing of all our tenants
Speaking about the event Ellen Hall, Supported Housing Manager at Apex said,
We are committed to the safety, health and wellbeing of all our tenants and this was a wonderful opportunity to work in partnership with other agencies to ensure that our elderly citizens have access to advice and support on issues that matter to them. Today has been a great success with our tenants enjoying the event and having a good afternoon’s craic while getting a little help and advice along the way
