Focusing on the many issues affecting older people and celebrating the successes of people already ageing positively.

Airing time: Mondays at 10am.



Ageing is an inevitable process for us all. We all age differently - depending on our personal circumstances such as; our social and whānau connections, cultural beliefs, health, financial situation and our general disposition. "Positively Ageing" is about making the most of our opportunities to do what we can, enjoy what we can, and contribute whenever and wherever we can.
