Event description
All welcome to this short and informative session around active ageing.

About this event

The Live Stronger for Longer project is a national initiative, which started in August 2017. The goal of the project is to support older adults to stay living independent and injury free, in their own homes.

This 45 min presentation covers; how ageing affects our functional capacity (ability to do daily activities), trainability, the importance of strength and balance activities for active ageing and how to access these opportunities within your local community.

Anyone is welcome to attend this FREE event. Please register to give us an idea of numbers.

Rebecca Logan will facilitate this workshop. Rebecca is the Project Leader for the Community Strength and Balance Project covering the Canterbury District Health Board region. She holds an Advanced Diploma of Exercise Prescription and has had previous roles in Personal Training, Exercise Therapy and Lecturing. She keeps active herself by taking part in Crossfit, playing football and volleyball as well as regular runs with her dog, Jake.

Keep Learning Mid Canterbury provides opportunities for Adult Community Education and is run by Connecting Mid Canterbury Charitable Trust. Each school term we put out a programme of approximately 10 learning events, open to the whole community. Volunteers & professionals share their skills and passions with others who come along - some events are free while others have a fee. Sometimes Mid Canterbury TimeBank members can pay in time credits and other community members pay with money.
