Seniors online courses expanding

  • BodyMoves Exercise Classes – Tuesdays weekly.
  • I Have A Story! Writing Workshops – Wednesdays for eight weeks.
  •  Mindful Connections workshops – Thursdays for eight weeks.

Jubilee Community Care is forging ahead with our recently introduced online services with new offerings available this month.

Existing online classes include Body Moves – a gentle armchair exercise class – while the first of our Mindfulness and Nutrition courses have just wrapped up with more to come.

We are offering our Mindfulness course online again by popular demand. Run by Jon Unal from Conscious Beginnings, the course will empower and support older people to reduce their isolation and improve their wellbeing, resilience, mental health and self-care.

The program will run online once a week on Thursdays from October 15 to December 3.

We also have the I Have a Story! Writing Workshops run by author and arts therapist Fiona Ware. The online workshops encourage participants to unleash their creativity and start writing about their lives – a powerful tool to acknowledge who we are, where we’ve come from and what we’ve learnt along the way.

The course will run online once a week on Wednesdays from October 14 to December 2.

For all online courses participants will need access to a computer and internet, but only basic computer knowledge is required. And if you are not confident with technology but would like to join our online offerings there is help available – see next story on assistance for seniors online.

At the end of each online class we will have social conversation sessions to allow clients to make new friends or keep up with old ones.

Those who have participated in our online activities have found it worthwhile.

Liz is thoroughly enjoying the BodyMoves exercise class. “It is great motivation to get moving in your own home with other people on the computer. And we can all do the exercises to the best of our abilities. It is fun as well.”

Client Denise recommends the Mindfulness course with Jon. “He is so good! I feel much better for doing the course.

The breathing techniques are wonderful for destressing and helping me get to sleep. I’m also able to experience joy and gratefulness easily and often and so my general mood is happier. Meeting people is a bonus too.’’

Perhaps there is another offering you would like to see online? If you have a topic of interest or an activity such as yoga, trivia or bingo you would like to see online then please let us know.

To express an interest in the online services, to suggest a particular service or to seek help to become involved phone 3871 3220 or email activities@jccagedcare.org.au today.
