WOULD you like to learn how to live life to the full while enjoying free morning tea and making new friends?

The 2020 Live Well, Live Long program is back for a second year and bookings are now being taken.

Glenorchy City Council has renewed its commitment with the Tasmanian Health Service to deliver this program to support older Glenorchy residents.

The program takes a holistic approach to the health and wellness of older people, with a focus on maintaining independence and contributing to significant lifestyle changes (big or small) that can have a positive impact on people’s lives.

Tasmanian Health Service health promotion worker Corina McCarthy said it had been a fantastic program to organise.

“Older people don’t usually have opportunities for one-on-one consultations with health professionals,” she said.

“At Live Well, Live Long they get the chance to ask questions in a safe environment, which is really important as the participants have the opportunity to get information for their own health and wellbeing.”

Held at the Glenorchy Health Centre (404-408 Main Road, Glenorchy), the program runs for 11 weeks every Thursday at 10am, commencing Thursday 5 March.

Future programs are set to begin Thursday 21 May and Thursday 6 August.

Bookings are essential.

For bookings and further information, phone Tasmanian Health Service – Health Promotion Workers on 6166 7602.
