Elders' Swimming Group

The Elder’s swimming group is facilitated by the Winnunga Healthy Lifestyle Worker every Tuesday from 1.30pm to 2.30pm

The group meets an important need for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders as it provides an invaluable source of support, and reduces the risk of isolation for older members of the community. In addition, the group addresses the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle – providing information on healthy eating, meal preparation, exercise, and social and emotional wellbeing.  Clients are referred to other Winnunga services such as the Diabetes Group, the dentist, No More Boondah, practice nurses and GPs, the physiotherapist, dietitians, and a range of medical specialists.
