Seniors Wellness

Because life should be enjoyed at any age

Thrive!

Are you a service provider for an aged community who:

– is looking for a way to improve the quality of life for your aged community?

– is curious about how wellness education can benefit your aged community?

– has tried a few wellness programs with minimal success?

– is finding existing wellness programs available are not sustainable, or focused solely on physical health?

– has not yet invested in the wellness and mental health of your aged community, but wishes to do so?


This is where we can help.

Thrive! is a complete program to help seniors find balance, meaning and happiness in their lives.

This wellness workshop series is full of engaging and practical activities to support and inspire seniors to live well.

Why Wellness for Seniors?

Wellness programs, like Thrive!, are an essential component that all Senior Living Communities should focus on to keep their residents happy and healthy, and help them live longer, more fulfilling lives.

Wellness programs tailored specifically for seniors have been shown to have positive effects on health care operations costs and use of medication, and can also reduce emergency room visits, hospital re-admissions and falls.

Research also shows that senior residents, and their family members, rate wellness programs as highly important during move-in decision making and for ongoing satisfaction.


What does this all mean for you, as a service provider?

  • reduced workloads for aged care staff
  • potential for employee upskilling
  • overall reduction in costs associated with health care
  • a more enjoyable culture within aged communities
  • increased productivity of aged care staff
