QUEST FOR ZEST – A Healthy Aging Lifestyle Show
Plan Well, Age Well, Live Well!
Quest for Zest is a free, public event designed specifically for those in our community who are nearing or already living their ‘senior years’. It empowers, educates and gives you the tools you need to be as healthy, happy and independent as possible in this new phase of life. It also addresses concerns that the ‘sandwich generation’ may have about caring for loved ones who may need assistance as they age. Participants leave the event better informed of the local services, supports and products that are available.
Workshops and exhibitors address a wide variety of topics including:
· Health and Wellness
· Advance Care Planning
· Local Community Supports and Education
· Caregiving and Supported Aging at Home
· Transportation Needs
· Financial and Legal Planning
· Travel and Volunteerism
· Housing and Downsizing
The 2016 Quest for Zest Healthy Aging Show is brought to you by the Barrie and Community Family Health Team, a non-profit healthcare organization, in collaboration with the City of Barrie and Barrie Transit.
*Barrie Transit is offering all riders attending the Quest for Zest event FREE transportation to and from Allandale Recreation Centre October 1st.*
