Knowledge Exchange

A welcome week of wellbeing

Selwyn Village, 43 Target Street, Point Chevalier

9-12 March 2020

New Zealand Government policy states that health and wellbeing are the greatest wealth we can accrue.  Suggesting that learning more about the many aspects of being healthy, happy and comfortably content is a sound investment. 

The Selwyn Wellbeing Week is a fantastic opportunity for older adults to connect with the concept of wellbeing.  The week will provide a bountiful array of information-sharing events that will be engaging, insightful, practical, and maybe even life changing. This year there will be new exhibitors, speakers, and information, for residents, friends, family members, and the community to enjoy.
