How do you want to Age?


Staying Independent while Ageing



Conversations about “staying independent while ageing” can be quite thought-provoking.

They are most productive when we are healthy and active.

Sharing ideas can help pinpoint what is most important as we age.

We gain increased awareness of what matters from social, spiritual and psychological perspectives.

These conversations are upbeat, refreshing and energizing.

Many find they contribute to peace of mind and a sense of well-being.


Pauline invites you, your families and age-related organisations to join in on this conversation. Ageing is a subject we don’t like to focus on when we’re fully involved in life. Yet the best time to have it is when we’re healthy and can think through various options.

Sharing ideas helps pinpoint what is most important for us as we age.  We figure out what matters.  Our friends and families know what we want should our independence be compromised unexpectedly.

These conversations are thought-provoking, upbeat and energizing.

Pauline will also share her 10 minute theater piece, “A Spark Within”.  It depicts a friendship spanning 60 years of milestones and transitions.  Judges at the Auckland “Short and Sweet” Festival, noted Pauline used theatre to “help maintain strong senior communities”.
