NSW Seniors Week is an annual NSW Government campaign presented by Ageing Disability and Home Care (ADHC). It is the largest celebration for people over 60 in the southern hemisphere. It is also for people aged 50 and older who have a lifelong disability or people who are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.
In 2013, NSW Seniors Week celebrates 55 years.
The dates for 2013 NSW Seniors Week are Sunday 17 March – Sunday 24 March 2013.
The theme for NSW Seniors Week is Live Life! and reflects the celebration of life, achievements and community engagement.
With over 900 free or specially discounted events held for seniors across the state, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
NSW Seniors Week provides seniors with opportunities to:
- be active and healthy
- be independent
- be recognised for their community involvement
