If you’re wanting to enhance positivity, resilience and wellbeing in either yourself or staff I’d love to hear from you.
In love and laughter,
There’s no way to sugar-coat it: getting older is inevitable. But while you can’t control your age, you can put things in place to keep you feeling young – no matter your graduation year.
To find out more, we chatted to members of La Trobe alumni community whose work intersects with ageing in surprising ways. Among them are laughter therapist Ros Ben-Moshe (Graduate Certificate in Health Promotion, 2007), whose workshops help people embrace laughter and joy; social entrepreneurs Danny Finley and Eva Gruen (La Trobe Accelerator Program, 2018), who’ve launched a campaign for intergenerational conversations; and early childhood educator Kim Biasio (Bachelor of Education, 2019), who works at a pioneering children’s centre that’s co-located in an aged care home.
