Active Choices. Active People.

Our Active Choices. Active People. model of service promotes Consumer Directed Care (CDC) principles for individuals who access our services, which include:

  • promoting a wellness or active ageing approach that emphasizes physical and mental health.
  • opportunities to improve social participation to maintain or promote a person’s capacity to live as independently as possible.
  • a person-centered approach to support, promoting wellness and active participation in goal setting and decision making.
  • timely and flexible services that respond to a person and their needs.

As you grow older, being healthy, physically active and socially engaged can have many benefits.

Here are some tips to help you achieve active ageing:

  •  eat a balanced diet. Not only does this help keep your body healthy, but your brain too.
  • do regular physical activity.  Physical activity helps you build muscles, control weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes and bone and joint problems (just to name a few).  It can also help prevent falls and injuries. Always check with your doctor before undertaking new physical activities.
  • engaging socially with others.  Creating social relationships is good for your overall health and well-being, and of course, your mental health.
