Productive Ageing with Central Coast Community College

GOSFORD, Australia - April 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Central Coast Community College has teamed up with local Residential Aged Care Facilities to run a project funded by the Australian Government’s Productive Ageing through Community Education (PAtCE) Program.

PAtCE aims to facilitate community engagement, active ageing, skill building and re-engagement with the world of voluntary or paid work. The Program also encourages the development of positive peer support networks amongst participants.

Participants from Matthew John Nursing Home, Veronica Aged Care Facility, Yallambee Lodge and The Orchards have enjoyed creating folk art in this specially funded program.  Residents from Veronica Aged Care will display their work at their fete on 12 April and The Orchards will be displaying the work of their participants to family and friends at a special in house exhibition on the 15th and 16th of April.

College tutor Julie Younger has enjoyed running the Program at the Residential Aged Care facilities.

“This Program has been a very positive experience for the residents. They have really enjoyed participating in the folk art classes.

“I have been amazed at the work produced. To see a blank canvas transformed into a work of art is inspiring.

“We are very excited that the residents of Veronica Aged Care and The Orchards have the opportunity to share their work at exhibitions during April” Julie said.

39 learners have enjoyed participating in the PAtCE Program that ran from October 2013 to April 2014.
