Rural Older People – why they matter…who cares anyway?

RCN is holding a conference to highlight the learning from its Rural Older People – Skills for Solutions Programme.

Thursday 21 March from 10.30am to 3pm

Lough Neagh Discovery Centre, Oxford Island, Lurgan

The conference will address why it is essential to take note of the needs of rural older people.  It will also focus on what government departments and service providers and older people themselves can do to ensure that rural older people feel included and valued in times of austerity.

The Commissioner for Older People in Northern Ireland will speak at the conference.
