Live Better for Longer with our Seniors Program

We help older adults thrive for longer at home with innovative and engaging group exercise and health education programs.

Our programs are led by expert allied health professionals such as Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Dietitians, Exercise Physiologists and Allied Health Assistants.

The research tells us that:

  • Approximately 50% of all falls can be prevented
  • Regular exercise reduces the risk of cancer, heart disease and decreases pain related to osteoarthritis
  • Social connections enhance health outcomes and reduce loneliness
  • Regular exercise improves the management of diabetes and osteoporosis

Our programs are available face-to-face across the Hunter New England and Central Coast Local Health Districts of NSW and available online through partnerships with seniors lifestyle, retirement village and aged care providers.

Benefits of our Seniors Wellbeing Group Programs

Move More, Live Better

As your total sitting time increases, so does your risk of an early death. Studies suggest the sweet spot for longevity lies around 7,000 to 8,000 daily steps or about 30 to 45 minutes of exercise most days.

Build Mental Health, Resilience & Wellbeing

Find your Tribe: Connect & Combat Loneliness

Seniors exercise group

An 80-year-long study, which began in 1938, found that the strongest predictor of a happy and healthy life was the quality of one’s social relationships. The study found that people who were more socially connected were happier, healthier, and lived longer than those who were less connected.

(Harvard Study of Adult Development)

Nourish your Body to Live Better

“Changing from a typical diet to an optimised diet (rich in legumes, whole grains and whole foods) at age 60 increases life expectancy by 8.8 years for women, 8 years for men.”

Prof Fadnes, University of Bergen, Norway.

Better Balance to Prevent Falls
