Life skills - Health & Recreation
Our Health and Recreation programs and activities goals are designed for the individual to focus on health and fitness aspects of their lives. This is a vital programme as health issues can have a negative impact on a person’s quality of life. These issues can effect in their daily life, independence, longevity, social capacity, self -esteem and self -confidence.
The individuals’ programmes will be designed around learning skills to be active and participate in healthy physical activity in the community. In the course of the programme they will experience a range of physical and social activities of their choice, connect to a local gymnasium where an individual exercise assessment and program can be arranged, demonstrate gym equipment, walking and swimming will be encouraged. Individuals will have access to information on health and fitness to assist them in making life style choices. It is hoped that this can lead to fuller participation in community sporting clubs and events. These programs can be one-to-one or in a group setting.
