Live well, live long

MEET new people, learn new things and enjoy a free morning tea – the Live Well, Live Long program is coming to Glenorchy in 2019.

The award-winning preventative health program is a series of 11 free weekly sessions that include health and wellbeing activities and information delivered by local professionals.

Session topics include sight and hearing, your medications, looking after your skeleton, healthy feet and more.

Glenorchy City Council positive ageing officer Elisa Ryan said the program was designed to help people think differently about ageing.

“People who have previously completed the program have been able to improve their knowledge about preventative health, as well as make more connections in the community as a result,” she said.

“It’s such a great opportunity for people to learn and also end up with friendships that can go on much longer after the end of the course.”

The program is delivered through The Tasmanian Health Service and supported by Glenorchy City Council.

Sessions will be held on Thursdays at the Glenorchy Community Health Centre at 404-408 Main Road, Glenorchy.

New programs will start in March, June and August 2019.

For more information on the program or to book your free place, visit the Glenorchy City Council website at www.gcc.tas.gov.au or phone the Tasmanian Health Service on 6166 7602.
