The new Neighbourhood Central Healthy Lifestyle and Wellness Program for older people is now up and running.
Clients have signed up to the 20-week program where they are enjoying a variety of relaxing and fun modified activities to increase health and wellbeing. We under- stand that each person is different, and we are accommodating to all levels of ability.
Activities are taking place in Parkes and Forbes, with some selected sessions in Peak Hill and Condobolin. Transport will be offered to selected events for people living in other areas such as Trundle and Tullamore.
Sessions include hydrotherapy, Tai Chi, yoga in a chair, older adults fitness group and music and singing groups. We are also holding information workshops that will help increase health awareness and promote falls strategies – all of which aim to prevent or delay further entry into the aged care system, make you feel good and keep you living in your home for longer.
It’s not too late to register! If you are aged over 65, or 50 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, please call Louise 0409 372 742 or Rachel 0456 800 328. Alternatively drop in or call our Parkes office on 6862 3757.
A $20 registration fee applies to cover all activities – that’s only $1 per week! There are limited numbers for each session, so call now to join in the fun.
