Dates have been announced for a nationwide roadshow series looking at issues affecting older people in modern Ireland. Organised by homecare company Bluebird Care, it will take a forensic look at a number of key themes around growing old in Ireland.
The events are free and will see a number of guest speakers address relevant issues in front of a live audience chaired by Broadcaster George Hook.
The events will run from September through to November. Newstalk 106 has been confirmed as media partner.
Operations Director with Bluebird Care, Eddie O'Toole says the events are part of their ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy.
"Care of older persons is an integral part of our daily work across Ireland. As a leading homecare company we are at the heart of this debate given we engage with thousands of older people every week and hear their concerns and views on key issues. With this in mind we wanted to give them a voice and so we decided to host a series of events across Ireland which will allow for a bigger discussion on those issues such as security, healthcare, community involvement and independence. The events are free and we are releasing tickets for each event on a first come first served basis.
"We are delighted that George Hook has once again partnered with us given his passion on the subject and similarly we are delighted that Newstalk 106 have come on board as media partners to help us deliver our key messages around this theme."
