AGE IS JUST A NUMBER – Tune in for the final episodes of AGELESS

LIVING AGELESSLY - GemLife TV series premieres this month

GRAB SOME POPCORN AND SETTLE IN FOR THE FINAL EPISODES OF GEMLIFE’S HEART-WARMING NEW TELEVISION SERIES AGELESS WHICH AIRS THIS MONTH ON CHANNEL NINE.

Meet the final three inspirational over-50s Australians who have overcome personal challenges to adopt truly positive mindsets that challenge misconceptions about ageing.

Last month we journeyed with GemLife Palmwoods resident, cancer survivor Sharon Lagden, as she went skydiving for the first time, and we met Tim Nielsen – an Arnhem Land tour guide who launched a new career at 50 and prevailed after pandemic impacts caused financial hardship.

They were just two of 11 extraordinary stories showcased in the eight-part series produced by GemLife. This month’s final two episodes promise to be just as inspiring. Here’s what’s in store:

EPISODE 7 - FOREVER BLOOMING

EPISODE 7 – FOREVER BLOOMING

4 May

Meet Noel Forbes who, after three marriages, is itching to plunge back into the dating pool with the help of relationship counsellor, Heidi Sommer-Ball. Heidi gives Noel, who recently turned 82, the practical steps he needs to take to find new love in the modern world and at a later stage in life. With Heidi’s help, Noel’s journey shows us it’s never too late to find love and bloom again.

Meanwhile, style mentor Angela Cleary helps spiritual author Natalie Perera, from the Sunshine Coast, get back to her roots and find her true essence. Now in her 50s, Natalie has spent so many years living up to others’ expectations and struggling to fit in. Now a blank canvas, Natalie is ready to paint some colour back into her life, starting with her wardrobe. Ange takes her on a journey of East meets West – from global citizen to reconnection with her true self.

Catch Episode 7 on Channel NINE HD: Saturday, 4 May – 1pm to 1:30pm. Or catch up on 9Now (available for one month after broadcast) or on GemLife’s website from Monday, 6 May.

EPISODE 8 - THE PHOENIX

EPISODE 8 – THE PHOENIX

11 May

At 58, Australia’s champion blind motorcycle rider Ben Felten will show you that no matter what obstacle you’re currently facing, you can tackle it head on and embrace bigger challenges. In the final episode of AGELESS, we witness Ben ride at more than 200 km per hour alongside Kevin Magee (former Australian Grand Prix champion motorcycle rider). Kevin gives instructions to Ben every step of the way to ensure he doesn’t come off his bike, because Ben is 100 percent blind. In the season’s inspiring conclusion, Ben’s heroic tale ultimately shows host Grey Rogers that behind every AGELESS person is a limitless internal mindset that defies age.

Catch Episode 8 on Channel NINE HD: Saturday, 11 May – 1pm to 1:30pm. Or catch up on 9Now (available for one month after broadcast) or on GemLife’s website from Monday, 13 May.
