HEALTHY AGEING CLASSES

What is the Healthy Ageing Class?

Health Ageing is a social circuit-based exercise session for older adults. The class is designed and conducted by a physiotherapist who monitors exercise safety, technique and progression. Exercises are tailored individually to your relevant injuries or needs while focusing on the overall functional goals of increasing strength, endurance and balance.

Why is the Healthy Ageing Class important for older adults?

Older adults are advised to complete 20 minutes of physical activity three to five times a week, however research shows that at least 30% of people over the age of 75 years, do no physical activity at all.

We know that:

  • 30-50% of people over 65 years living in the community fall each year
  • Over 85 year olds are 10-15 times more likely to sustain a hip fracture compared to 60-65 year olds after a fall
  • 54% of falls occur in or around the home
  • Falls are the leading cause of hospitalisation

What will the classes involve?

Our small classes of maximum eight people are supervised by a Physiotherapist and run for 50 minutes. As you improve, your program will be progressed to keep the sessions challenging and targeted towards your needs.

What are my payment options?

All Healthy Ageing sessions are claimable through your Private Health Insurance if you have Physio extras cover. Group session packages are available to pre-purchase.

What do I wear to Healthy Ageing Classes?

Wear something that is comfortable and easy to move in and lace up shoes.

How do I get started with Healthy Ageing Classes?

Step 1: Book in for your FREE Healthy Ageing assessment/screening (20 minutes)

Step 2: Join into a group session!

Class time: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:00am
