Healthy Living

The Healthy Living ethos is all about finding ways to live a happier and healthier older life.

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you have to stop enjoying life. As your circumstances change with career changes and retirement, children leaving home, and the loss of loved ones, it becomes more important to find new ways to deal with these changes.

Our aim is to maintain and improve physical and mental wellbeing and to promote an active lifestyle. We support and encourage people who use the service to maintain a good and healthy lifestyle, rekindling old friendships and making new friends. Anybody over 55 is always welcome to drop in.

We regularly host a range of day trips and events, promoting fun, laughter and enjoyment for those who attend.

People who attend promote the centre by word of mouth and other organisations have become more aware of the services that we provide and refer people on to us. Attendance is growing and the facilities are well used.
