Spirits boosted at Quota’s Wellbeing Day for Women

Quota Club Narooma’s Health and Wellbeing Day for Women has been declared a great success, with a capacity crowd of over 80 people turning up at Club Narooma on Saturday.

Described as “fantastic” and “inspiring” by some participants, the event gave women practical advice to gain control of all facets of their lives.

There was a good vibe in the room as women shared laughter, good food and good company. At the end of the day, each went home with a gift bag put together by Quota Club Narooma.

The event began with wonderful performance of traditional dances by the Djaadjawan Dancers, an Aboriginal women’s dance group of the Yuin Nation.

Cheryl Blessington, principal lawyer at Narooma Law, expertly reviewed wills, powers of attorney, and guardianship. Rob Ingram, a Systems Navigator for Senior and Aged Care, gave a great overview of the care system and how to access it.

Penny Summersby, a financial counsellor with the Salvation Army, provided advice for those in financial difficulty, as well as suggestions about superannuation, accessing concessions and ways to avoid scams.

Author and fitness specialist Nancy Casu revved up the proceedings with an upbeat presentation on the importance of keeping our bodies and brains active. She had everyone on their feet and moving to music.

Dr Nadine Hills inspired listeners by offering ways to live calmer lives in an increasingly unpredictable world.

During morning tea and lunch the women had a opportunity to talk to presenters, and pick up information from organisations in Narooma.

Quota president Sue Fahey acknowledged the support of Club Grants NSW and wrapped up the session by thanking all the businesses and local organisations who supported the symposium with raffle prizes. “We hope the beautiful aromas and gifts in your gift bags will bring you pleasant memories of today and the information from our presenters will help you to navigate the rest of 2022 and beyond.”

Fitness specialist Nancy Casu had everyone moving with some brain training exercises.

Rob Ingram, who works for the Seniors Rights Service, outlines steps in navigating the My Aged Care system.
