Kāpiti Boomers Aging Well

Kāpiti Baby boomers who’d like a break from being blamed for all that is wrong with the world can come along to a free event in Paraparaumu.

The Commission for Financial Capability knows that life isn’t black and white and people of all ages need a helping hand occasionally, not to mention a bit of fun.

So we’re hosting a free Ageing Well Forum in Paraparaumu to help older New Zealanders make the most of their retirement.

It will give practical information in an entertaining format. Topics that will be covered include how to make your income live as long as you do, the five tell-tale signs of a scam and ways to maximise your health and lifestyle.

The Commission’s investor education expert David Boyle will be joined by Banking Ombudsman Nicola Sladden and Age Concern CEO Stephanie Clare.

David said: “This is a great chance to have a bit of fun, while getting lots of useful tips and information. People will also have the opportunity to ask all the questions they are not sure about and get the answers straight from the horse’s mouth.

“Many people don’t know where to start, especially when it comes to finding out about scams and frauds as no-one likes to talk about it if they have been ripped off. We hope to fill in the gaps and give people the information they need to cope with whatever is thrown their way.”

The event will be held at Te Newhanga Kāpiti Community Centre, 15 Ngahina Street, Paraparaumu, from 1pm 4.30pm on Tuesday 11 April.

Refreshments will be provided, but places are limited so register as soon as possible by calling the Commission’s Debbie Walker on 09 356 1152 or email her at [email protected]
