PADCA (Pietermaritzburg and District Council for the Care of the Aged) in association with Hugo’s Panel Shop used October 1 to highlight their Go Blue Campaign that aims to improve awareness of the issues of ageing.

This year we are focusing on Healthy and Active Ageing. Padca would like to encourage people to stay active, no matter your age, and do not stop doing the things you love because this ensures a happy ageing process.

Our philosophy at Padca is to grow awareness of the things people need to do to ensure their ageing process is a positive one. What can we all do to make life meaningful for those around us who are older? Stay involved with family and friends, stay active, “do stuff”, and finally exercise, exercise, and exercise some more because this is the single most important thing you can do to positively influence you ageing process. — Supplied.
