Jun 09, 2015

The North East Region of Active Retirement will host a day-long event to encourage its members to engage in opportunities to help them achieve a healthier and active lifestyle.  The event will take place on Wednesday, 10th June at the Ardboyne Hotel, Navan, Co Meath.

The event is part of the Marigold Festival series hosted by Active Retirement Ireland in partnership with Home Instead Senior Care. 

Wednesday’s event will be addressed by the Minister for State at the Department of Education, Damien English, at 11.45am.  His address will be followed by an input from retired RTÉ broadcaster, Anne Doyle, who will speak about what active retirement means to her. A photo opportunity will also be staged to coincide with the attendance of Minister English and Ms.Doyle.

Through Wednesday’s event, members of Active Retirement form the Louth, Meath, Cavan and Monaghan areas will have the opportunity to engage with health care providers, leisure activity providers and other services.

According to Brendan Crawley, Chairperson of the North East Region of Active Retirement:  “It’s important that – as retired people – we are reminded of the supports and services that are available that can contribute to a long, healthy retirement.  Wednesday’s event is about increasing awareness and making sure we spread the message about a genuine active retirement. 

“Our collaboration with Home Instead Senior Care services is important, as they too are committed to encouraging people of all ages to live a happy, healthy and independent life.”
