Connect-ED brings together a range of community organisations alongside council colleagues from leisure and culture and health and social care teams such as occupational therapy and physiotherapy to provide a prevention and early intervention approach to ageing. We start to experience functional decline in our 40s onwards so this sessions aims to help us stay healthy and more active for as long as possible, avoiding serious mental and physical health concerns.
The sessions focus on self-management and are designed to give advice and support where people need it in order to stay well. Each month will also have a theme such as falls prevention and strengthening, power of attorney and wills and money and anti fraud advice.
Sessions run on the first Wednesday of the month at Hillhead Parish Church, 2 Rosebank Avenue, Kirkintilloch G66 2PR and on the first Thursday of each month at St Joseph’s church hall, 3 Buchanan Street, Milngavie G62 8DZ. 1-3pm. No need to book.
