Cornwall Care, the county’s largest provider of care for older people, is hosting the unique event and invites people from across Cornwall to join in.
The workshop, led by the Bishop of Truro, will explore how forward-thinking people can achieve their aims and ambitions for active living in their mature years, sharing their experiences and lives with others. It will be an informal debate over a glass of wine and a light buffet.
Douglas Webb, Chief Executive of Cornwall Care, said: “People tell us that following retirement they want to live life to the full, try new things and enjoy time to do as they please while taking pleasure in the companionship of others.
“Living in Cornwall presents us with many opportunities to enjoy life, whether your passion is art, the sea, the countryside or something completely different.
“The idea of this one-off event is to consider the concept of people living and enjoying life together – whatever their interests may be. We realise it’s experimental, but we wanted to highlight this exciting new concept for Cornwall.
“We’d love to hear people’s thoughts and opinions about supporting each other by working and living together in order to design a new and bright future. We welcome all views, ideas and creativity.”
As a platform for discussion, Cornwall Care has invited nationally acclaimed architects Pozzoni and PRP to prepare drawings of their ideas for shared housing.
My Future – A Design for Living is being held at the Hall for Cornwall on July 18th from 6pm to 8pm. Free tickets are available on a first come first served basis by calling Alex Wedlock on 01872 261787.
As well as Bishop Tim it will include other speakers to generate conversation and debate.
