Are you 50 years+ and living with HIV? Our Peer Support Network is a great opportunity to connect with others and hear from various guest speakers.


For our August session, we will have a presentation on Future Planning & Elder Abuse Prevention. Delivered by Claire Thurstans, Project Lead/Seniors Law of Justice Connect.

What is future planning and how can we do it?

Future planning means:

  • Planning what you want your future to look like, including your healthcare, lifestyle, and financial arrangements
  • Choosing who would have the legal power to make decisions for you if you couldn't anymore
  • Examples of legal options include powers of attorney and advance care planning.

The presentation will also cover:

  • What prevents people from future planning?
  • What is elder abuse?
  • How can future planning help prevent elder abuse?

In a group discussion, we will explore ideas about how we can empower ourselves to future plan and help retain control and dignity as we get older.

Lunch Provided!

PLEASE NOTE: There is onsite parking available off Margaret Street and the Tram 72 from the city stops at the front of the building, Stop 28.
