Free online healthy lifestyle program for seniors

 Seniors aged 60 years and over and Aboriginal people aged 45 years and over living in the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) can now take part in a free, online healthy lifestyle program.

Healthy and Active for Life Online is a free NSW Health initiative designed for people who are living at home and who wish to increase their confidence, knowledge and skills to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. “This is a great opportunity to get active and learn about healthy lifestyle habits from the comfort of your own home, and with advice from trained coaches at a time that suits you,” Jillian Adams, NNSWLHD Health Promotion Manager said. “I encourage anyone thinking about becoming more active and healthier to sign up,” she said.

Each program runs for 10 weeks during NSW school terms. The next program begins on Monday 12 July and registrations are open now. The program includes access to 10 self-directed online modules on healthy lifestyle topics and a home exercise program. Participants will also receive a weekly phone call from a trained phone coach at a time that suits them. For further information or to book, please visit:
