Our seniors need YOU! It’s time to #GoBlue

It’s time for our annual awareness initiative #GoBlue. Designed to draw attention to the needs of seniors in the Pietermaritzburg and Midlands community, the #GoBlue campaign runs through to #GivingTuesday on 29 November. Living agelessly requires each person to remain engaged and active as they grow older.

To educate the community on ageless living, PADCA encourages the reading of their interesting and well-researched articles on topics such as healthy eating, the benefits of staying active, and the importance of community. They are available for you to download and share with anyone you think will enjoy them, at home, at school and at the office. Find them at Get Involved.

To continue with their work of caring for vulnerable frail seniors, in the KZN Midlands, PADCA is calling for donations towards purchasing a new frail care bed for Sunnyside Park Home. Whether it’s R20 or R200, YOU really will help someone in need! To find out more about how to donate please visit BackaBuddy.

We will also be hosting the Open Gardens at Woodgrove Retirement Village on the weekend of 15-16 October from 9 am to 4 pm with a R20 entrance donation towards the frail care bed fundraiser (children under 12 are free). This is a great opportunity to interact with the PADCA family so come along for a lovely day out, we hope to see you there! Find out more here.
