FITNESS FOR OLDER ADULTS PROGRAM (FOAP)
Community Allied Health Services regionally coordinates exercise groups for older adults in a number of towns. The purpose of the groups is to reduce the risk of falls, improve balance, general fitness levels and overall health and wellbeing.
The right kind of exercise can make people healthier, happier and more able to enjoy the later years of life. The exercise groups are especially designed for men and women over the age of 55.
Classes include a choice of 'Exercise to Music' groups or 'Strength Training' classes. Classes are conducted by qualified VICFIT Instructors. Physiotherapists regularly visit and provide advice.
The classes are an hour long and are held in a range of community venues.
Classes are available at the following locations:
• Kangaroo Flat
• Golden Square
• White Hills
• Spring Gully
Fees: $5.00 per class
