You’re invited to join the FREE conversation to discuss how we can build a compassionate community in Roma.
10.30am 9th July 2019
Compassionate communities are communities with networks of support for their local community members who are experiencing loss, ageing, dying and grief.
This is an important conversation for your whole community. You will receive information and participate in discussion including: how to become a more compassionate neighbour, what community services and supports are currently available and explore what a compassionate community would look like in your neighbourhood.
Everyone is invited: including but not limited to carers, people who have experience with loss, ageing, dying and/or grief, local council staff, health and community professionals, community groups, organisations and supports, local elders, seniors, religious and cultural groups, business owners, teachers, children with elderly parents.
In addition: prior to each morning tea, Health Consumers Queensland (HCQ) will be holding focus groups for consumers on “What matters to you in relation to ageing, end-of-life care and dying”. These focus groups will run from 0900-1000. Please visit the HCQ website for further information: http://www.hcq.org.au/for-consumer-representatives/consumer-opportunities/
This project is administered by Palliative Care Queensland, in partnership with Council on the Ageing Queensland COTA Queensland, Health Consumers Queensland Health Consumers Queensland and Carers Queensland Carers Queensland and funded by the Department of Communities, Disability Servicesand Seniors Age-friendly Queensland grants.
