Aged Care Program
The focus for the aged care program is on the following 3 pillars:
- Provide opportunity for elderly members of the community to become more engaged in physical activity.
- Improve the mental and physical health of participants.
- Support the development of aged care workers in understanding the value of physical activity in older age and to recognise existing benchmark practices.
With the population over 70 set to double in the next 40 years we have a core focus on engaging and supporting the senior populations with physical activity. The benefits of being physically active in minimising the risk of falls and social isolation is significant. Through our partnerships we will work closely with aged care facilities and support the implementation of impactful activity programs through innovative staff development training, evidence based content and proven physical activity programs.
