Guests were given a rare treat at NARI’s soiree of music and conversation – the chance to listen to Jose Carbo, Australia’s premier baritone.
The function, held at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, included beautiful performances also from Italian artists Michelle Buscemi and Mattia, champagne and canapes.
Director Professor Dow updated guests about NARI’s current research and its contribution to improving our aged care system of the future, as well as trying to shift the stereotypes of older people.
“NARI is trying to do something about this. We have given evidence to the Royal Commission and made a range of suggestions based on our research as well as suggestions about research that needs to be done,” Professor Dow said.
“Ageing is a natural part of life, we can’t help it and we can’t change it. Evidence tells us that we are more likely to be happy as we get older, more likely to know how to deal with change and the ups and downs of life – so let’s embrace getting older and enjoy life,” she urged guests.
Thank you again we had a wonderful time - the performers were a joy to listen and watch pure magic! Company, food and champagne the evening was perfect.
