Dear All

The ACT has one of the fastest-growing populations of people aged 60 years and over in Australia. This is expected to grow from 15.8% in 2010 to 19.6% by 2020, and to 22% by 2030. Ageing is part of the life process. Each person’s ageing is influenced by many factors including socio-economic circumstances, life experience, gender, cultural background, education and general health. Old age can be boring and gloomy, if not taken in the right spirits. Rather than cribbing, it is better to enjoy the dusk of our life, rejoicing the memories of the past. Though the body does not remain much active by this time, one should make sure to keep the zest for life intact.
Positive ageing is about having a good quality of life through social relationships, a healthy lifestyle and by feeling welcomed in the community. Positive ageing is also about seniors remaining involved, caring for themselves and each other and embracing this stage of their lives.

During the various social gatherings, I have discussed about the club with older people (retired or planning to retire) and they all agreed that we should have our own seniors club under the umbrella of our association (like Bangla School and Bangla Radio). The main goal and vision of the Club will be to improve the quality of life for its members, make their lives easier by assisting them in as many areas as possible through recreational, social and cultural activities and by organizing trips, excursions and outings to discover new places and new friends. All these ideas are in early stage and we will finalise the shape of the club with further consultation with the community members.

To facilitate the establishment of “Bangladeshi Seniors Club”, the interested members of Bangladeshi community age 50 and over are requested to send their names to the convener.
