Jubilee launches seniors’ online services

At Jubilee Community Care we believe in being there for you, even when we are not supporting you in person in your own home. As such, Jubilee is now delivering online services to keep you connected, healthy, active, and to improve your sense of wellbeing.

We have partnered with local businesses who provide specialist teaching and classes online on a range of topics, all at a low cost.

The online services are open to Jubilee clients as well as seniors in the community, with time at the end of each session to discuss the day’s content and build new friendships if you wish to stay online.

To take part all you need to do is connect to the classes on your computer or tablet with the instructions provided once you register. It’s easy.

Two classes start in mid-July so register as soon as possible. The classes include:

Diet and Nutrition Education with partner Food Solutions: Learn how to stay healthy, meet your nutritional needs and continue enjoying meal times as you age. Topics include your changing nutrition needs, malnutrition and hydration, easy convenience foods, how to eat well on a budget, modified diets and chronic health, and more. The program will run over three sessions at 10am on July 14, August 11 and September 8. Cost is from $12.50 per session.

Mindful Connections with partner Conscious Beginnings: Join online mindfulness sessions and learn effective strategies to improve your wellbeing, reduce stress and enjoy life to the fullest. Key topics to be discussed include a definition of mindfulness, its key principles and scientifically proven benefits; understanding and managing stress effectively; finding meaning in life and dealing with isolation/loneliness; wellness habits for better sleep; and group discussions. The course, held weekly for six weeks, will begin at 10am on Wednesday, July 15 and continue to August 19. Cost is from $12.50 per session.

Bodymoves Exercise classes with partner Bodytrack Exercise Physiology: This gentle program is suitable for anyone who hasn’t exercised in a while or those wanting a low-to-moderate intensity exercise regime. Each session involves aerobic and resistance training, coordination and flexibility exercises, and balance training. Sessions are weekly on Tuesdays at 1.30pm. An assessment with Bodytrack is held before you begin. Cost is from $15 per session.

Jubilee Wanderers activities update

The Jubilee Wanderers activities program is still suspended due to COVID-19 although we are hoping that our buses and wonderful day trips will resume soon.

Our activities coordinator Vicki has been champing at the bit to get out and about again but even when activities do resume the numbers on buses will be limited.

Also still suspended is our exercise and hydrotherapy classes. Participants will be notified when they recommence.

Your patience at this time is appreciated.
