Having fun improves body and soul
Poor balance and lack of mobility are being eroded as the participants of Age Concern Taranaki’s falls prevention programme, Walk2Life, take to the water at the New Plymouth Aquatic Centre.
Every Monday 20-30 older people are put through their aqua walking paces, building up core body strength. It is a party-like atmosphere in the pool, with much fun and hilarity.
Lower blood pressure, greater confidence and improved strength, are just some of the benefits our vibrant group of older people report as they enjoy each other’s company.
Walk2Life participants tell us this programme is having an enormous positive impact on their lives.
