The info graphic below maybe useful in showing the situation for older Australians (from 2014). According to the Australian Human Rights Commission:

‘…Australians aged 65 years and over contribute almost $39 billion each year in unpaid caring and voluntary work. If the unpaid contribution of those aged 55 to 64 years is included, that figure rises to $74.5 billion per year.[1] Older Australians should be recognised for their role in building strong and healthy communities.
However, many say that negative attitudes about older people can translate into unfair treatment and social exclusion. Being labelled as “too old” or “past their use-by date” means that some miss out on work, training, study and other opportunities.’

According to HeartMath (https://www.heartmath.com):
‘Tuning into your heart’s wisdom creates a profound shift within that helps you approach situations with more emotional balance, compassion, clarity and personal confidence.’

The program also draws upon your lived experience which is your reality and so important to observe and value. This is how you know that things are improving and getting better for you.

Questionnaires and reflections throughout the program – which when coupled with how you feel makes up your personal evidence

The intention is to:

Find your Self:
connect with your heart, feelings, senses and intuition

Find your Way
discover your freedom, purpose, path and passions

In your later years:
become more of your true, caring self, in more moments and situations
Live life to your full

About Tricia:

‘While I have experience in many industries including counselling, fitness, coaching, education and wellbeing, I feel that it is through many of my personal life situations including a cancer diagnosis in 2006, and life journey as a parent and grand-parent that I have discovered a simple truth about feeling truly happy and successful.’

About Nigel:

‘While I have arrived here with a range of work and professional experience in leadership, governance in organisations and business, it has been through my own personal life and journey as a parent that I have discovered what really matters and makes a difference to my own wellbeing and happiness.’

‘Together, we see how moment by moment heart-based practices and caring choices, although small and simple, play the most significant role in underpinning and creating helpful new directions for ourselves, systems, governments, communities, and industries. Our warm regards Tricia and Nigel’
