Meet like-minded people and share your interests. Feel part of a strong community

The social aspect is all too often overlooked in later years. It is very easy to become lonely and isolated, even within your own community, especially if you no longer feel part of it or valued. It’s often said that when people grow older, they become invisible. The Balanced Lives programme can help older people reconnect with their community, make new friends and become visible again. It's important to make older people feel that their lives matter.

The Balanced Lives programme is marvellous, the interaction is just phenomenal. I feel the social interaction is as important as the exercise.
