Our AgeFIT Home program is approved by Live Stronger for Longer, which is an initiative of ACC, The Ministry of Health, NZQA and the New Zealand Government encouraging activity by seniors to reduce the risk of falls. We understand and agree with the importance of this initiative.
Additionally, we believe that by being stronger, more balanced, more agile, we can all be more active, and with that comes the ability to do the things we love, which in turn gives meaning to our lives.
Live Stronger for Longer has some great resources available for seniors to download, like the attached 'LOVE YOUR INDEPENDENCE' brochure (click on the PDF version below). It has a very handy Home Safety Checklist that gives tips about what to look out for within and around your home to avoid accidents and falls (among other topics).
