TRI-AGE WEST BELFAST LAUNCH
Friday April 20th 2012 in the Farset International,
466 Springfield Road, Belfast BT12 7DW
12.00 – 1.00pm

SCA are launching Tri-Age west Belfast, a new project aimed at tackling disadvantage in older people, particularly in those who are isolated and considered hard to reach or those who have been diagnosed or who are deemed to be at higher risk of developing dementia and other associated illnesses. The Tri-Age project will work towards removing barriers and will actively promote participation and engagement in community life.
The launch of the Tri-Age Project and recent reports from the Alzheimer’s Society emphasis the fact that dementia is one of the worst causes of disability in later life and has a devastating impact on independent living. While deaths due to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia have increased by over 40% over the past decade, research has shown that intervention programmes to enhance the physical, social and emotional inclusion of people at risk and working towards delaying the onset of dementia by five years would reduce the number of dementia related deaths in NI by up to half.
With this in mind, the Tri-Age Project will develop a community support programme to promote independent living. The overall aim of the project is to enhance the quality of life, health and wellbeing of older people who live in west Belfast through the development of programmes based around diet, exercise and stimulation and by providing in-centre and outreach advice services around benefits, home safety and heating, falls and accident prevention.
SCA would like to invite you to celebrate the launch of the project with us.
