Marigold Festival - summer highlight for Active Retirement Groups

The Active Retirement Ireland Marigold Festival Series is back for its fourth year, bringing health and wellbeing to every corner of the nation this summer – and Waterford City will host an Active Ageing

Exhibition, celebrating all aspects of ageing in Ireland, on Wednesday May 31st in the Tower Hotel.

In partnership with Home Instead Senior Care, the exhibition will be one of nine fun, interactive, and informative events around the country, covering everything from sports to music, and from flowers to ballroom dancing.

Elizabeth Dermody, Chairperson of Active Retirement Ireland’s South East Region, said, “Active retirement is all about keeping healthy and active in retirement, and enjoying direct exchanges with others in your community. It’s an old-fashioned social network, like Snapchat or Facebook in real life.”

“As the summer rolls in, these events provide a fantastic opportunity for our generation to get information about how to make the most of retirement! It’s a chance for us to mingle face-to-face with one another, with everyone else in the community, and with our Active Retirement Associations – all in an interactive and fun setting.”

Danette Connolly, Director of Care for Home Instead Senior Care in Waterford said: ““We are delighted to again sponsor the Active Retirement Ireland Marigold Festival series, for the fourth time this year.

“We truly value the relationship with Active Retirement Ireland and its members; and events of this kind, which celebrate healthy and active ageing through physical, social and professional activities, offer a wonderful opportunity to showcase older people taking a positive approach to ageing, an attitude thoroughly supported by Home Instead Senior Care.”

The Active Retirement Ireland South East Region Marigold Festival Exhibition will take place on Wednesday 31st May from 10:30am to 4:30pm. The event is open to the public and is completely free.
