The Live Well, Live Long program is a 12 week program that helps people to maintain their independence for much longer and get the most out of life.

Now in its third year, the program is delivered by health care specialists who present on a variety of topics such as how to keep active, maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat well, care for your eyesight, relaxation techniques, and what community contacts and resources are available in the local area.

A free healthy lunch is also provided and gives participants a chance to meet new people in a friendly and relaxed environment.

A recent participant of the program, Brian Parker, said the Live Well, Live Long program was a great experience.

“It was a great opportunity for seniors, pensioners or otherwise, to be able to see and experience what the government, other organisations and what we can do to help us live well and live long. Information on health was valuable, particularly diet, exercise, mental health. The program is a must for us oldies.”

Maureen Newman, who was also took part in the program said “I have learnt so very much from these guest speakers who are all experts in their field and have thoroughly enjoyed the Live Well, Live Long program.”

The Live Well, Live Long program is a partnership between the Council, the Clarence Integrated Care Centre, and the Tasmanian Health Organisation South.

The Live Well, Live Long program will be held at the Clarence Integrated Care Centre (ICC) for 12 weeks. There are three program dates to choose from: 1 March to 31 May, 7 June to 30 August, and 6 September to 22 November.
