Healthy for Life

Posted by on 23 April 2020

Dear Friends, As we head out of level 4 next week, hopefully, we will continue on the path of recovery. However, until we have a vaccine, it will still mean a more restricted lifestyle for those who are more vulnerable. To assist older people who will continue to be more confined, the HOPE Foundation has helped sponsor the production of a TV show, which promotes safe and evidence-based advice for older people within their homes.

The show focuses on a universally accepted home exercise programme (Super 7), developed by Prof Denise Taylor and Liz Binns from AUT, which has been designed to be undertaken without supervision and is being used clinically by physiotherapists. Integrated in the 30-minute programme will also be important messages such as home safety, nutrition and sleep, brain and mental health as well as maintaining social links.

Healthy for Life will be screening on TV1 on Saturday, May 2nd at 9 am

  • Encouraging your children and grandchildren to invest in their futures by donating time and money (a baby girl born today has a 1 in 3 chance of living to 100 , a boy 1 in 4 and is likely to be fitter and healthier–think about the implications of that)
