Age-friendly communities are places where people stay involved in community life, enjoy good health and feel safe. They are also communities where older people are treated with respect and feel they can contribute and belong.

During 2018, the Live Well Project will trial the effectiveness of a network of exercise professionals to increase involvement of people in safe structured exercise as they get older.
A particular focus of the network and the professional development is on engaging older people who want to start or return to exercise and stay involved for the long-term. Group exercise provides a unique form of social connection for information sharing and the improved physical fitness is closely linked to maintaining independence. Two important aspects of healthy ageing in order to Live Well.
Interested exercise professionals are invited to attend a half-day professional development session titled:
'Best practice structured exercise for people as they get older’ to be held on Friday 11 May 12.30-4pm at Terang Fitness, Strong St Terang.
To attend please send your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by 13 April.
