International Day of Older Persons is a day to celebrate all older people – to highlight the value of all older people and to promote dignity and respect. The 2018 international theme is “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions“.


This year Age Concern New Zealand want all New Zealanders to sign up as Age Concern Dignity Champions and stand up for the human rights of older Kiwis.


“There is no excuse for elder abuse, says Stephanie Clare, Age Concern New Zealand Chief Executive. I am appalled that we are still having to deal with cases each day where older people are taken advantage of.


“Just because someone is older it doesn’t mean they are less valuable, have less purpose or should lose basic human rights, the right to make their own choices and respect from those around them.

“Of the cases we see, 75% of alleged abusers are family members, either adult children or partners of adult children and that needs to stop!

“So come on Kiwis we all have a part to play. You can take a stand against ageism and join me by signing up today!” says Stephanie.

An Age Concern Dignity Champion pledges to:
• Reject stereotypes and focus on the uniqueness of every individual
• Speak up when they hear people speaking negatively about growing old
• Have the courage to question practices they feel are disrespectful to older people
• Not patronise older people
• Be patient, polite and friendly
• Have zero tolerance for abuse or neglect
• Build relationships – they combat isolation and loneliness by getting to know the older people in their lives.

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard this trick before? A handy hack on how to open OXO cubes is causing a stir online, as it seems many of us have been doing it all wrong.

Forget crumbling up the cube after opening the silver foil packaging - it seems that packaging was actually designed to be flattened. To read more click here.

Simply open up the flaps on the side, flatten them out and then crumble the cube inside the package, turning it into a powder that's a heck of a lot easier to add to your dish.

Did you know this handy trick? Have you been opening the cubes the wrong way your whole life like the rest of us? Will this make cooking for your family a little easier? Share your thoughts in the replies below!

DISCOUNTED NUTRITION CONSULTS

I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far :)

I am a holistic nutrition student at Wellpark college coming to the end of 2 years of study. In this last 4 months of our studies we are taking part in our clinical practicals. This means that we will be having supervised nutrition consults with clients.

We have just finished the first intake of clients and although we focus on long term lifestyle change, the short term results our clients have been experiencing makes us all the more enlivened to welcome in the second intake!

So if you are wanting to upgrade your health, have wanted to see a nutritionist but have been hindered by the cost, or have a health concern then get in touch.

Either message me, text 021703063 or email IntuitionNutritionNZ@gmail.com

Details:

What: 2 hour initial consultation and two 45 minute follow up appointments for only $30 (at least $200 value). The initial consultation is a holistic, in-depth and mindful exploration of your current health, side effects may be a deeper self awareness and knowledge. In the first follow up (2-3 weeks later) we will work together through the simple changes, created individually for you, that will make a positive impact to your health.
There are two special appointment spots available, called an "on the spot" consultation that require a 3 hour time period. The advantage with these appointments is that you will receive your carefully-crafted, scientific and holistic care-mode nutrition plan 30 minutes after your initial 2 hour appointment.

Extra appointments above the initial $30 package are only $10.

When: Every Thursday from 18th October- 15th November , Initial appointments from 1:30-6pm, follow up appointments 1:30-7:30pm. The on the spot consultations- 1:30-5pm.

Where: Prema Clinic, 14 Mills Lane, Albany, Auckland.

If this sounds like you, or someone you know don't hesitate to contact me, I look forward to hearing from you.

Sharon Wall.
