Sunshine 60 & Better Group Inc. was formed in 1994 and is a community development, healthy ageing program designed to meet the expressed needs of older people in local settings. 60 & Better is a state-wide program that was developed in recognition of the need to proactively address health issues related to Queensland's rapidly ageing population. Our program is dedicated to actively pursuing the philosophy of empowering older people to obtain a quality lifestyle, good health and a feeling of general well-being. We service the coastal area and the rural hinterland of the Sunshine Coast and Cooloola regions from Caloundra City in the south to Imbil and surronding areas in the west, and Noosa to the north. Our main office and activity centre is based in Maroochydore, and run outreach activities in Caloundra, Coolum, Imbil, Nambour and Noosavile. We encourage older people at a local level to participate in decisions and activities that affect their lives. In response to this we offer a wide range of activities including: art; bus trips, monthly barbecues, craft, card making; computer classes; cards; dancing; gentle exercise, tai chi and Mah Jong and lots more. We also have annual activities such as, Fishers Older people Forum, Seniors Week, Information Sessions/Expo?s and our Christmas Luncheon.
