Healthy Mind and Movement fills the gap between hospital support and self-care at home. The program supports (particularly older) community members to build exercise endurance, general fitness and improve their overall independence and wellbeing. It also assists those with newly diagnosed or early onset dementia or mild cognitive impairment.
The Healthy Mind and Movement program comprises three fully funded programs which are coordinated on-site at by a physiotherapist in our Ambulatory Care Centre gym. All programs last for 12 weeks. This program is currently available at Kyneton only.
Suitable for anyone 50+ who has finished a specialist cardiac, respiratory or inpatient program and wants to maintain or build fitness and independence.
A lifestyle exercise program for people newly diagnosed with dementia or cognitive impairment. It’ll help with muscle strength, mobility, sleep, stress and wellbeing.
A movement program to reduce the risk of older people falling at home or out and about.
