50+ Active Seniors Classes at The PIT
LONGEVITY BENEFITS SENIORS SERVICES
Where age is a requirement, a youthful outlook is essential & a positive approach to Health and Wellbeing is Priority.
My name is Ell, I have been a resident of the Macarthur all of my life and just like you I have watched our quiet country area grow and develop. These days it is a little harder to keep track of life, events, activities and friends due to the current pace of the world and the many ways we are now able to receive information.
I have been working with people of all ages from many walks of life for the past 30years. Now in my fabulous forties, I find myself extremely passionate and driven to assist, encourage and inspire all Seniors to enjoy the best retirement has to offer. I can’t explain how excited I am working with and alongside the Seniors of our community.
I am aware and have witnessed, for many Seniors the so called rest and relax, enjoy yourself years are difficult, worrying and can cause much anxiety. For the most part these feelings started as a smaller issue and due to no resolve, poor or lack of communication or simply not the care required have grown to be quite a consuming burden that can exhaust a person which in turn can effect one's health which leads to decreased participation in activities and socialization. All these factors then start to deteriorate ones physical health thus ones personal independence and dignity can be challenged so then stubbornness sets in. Our Seniors are of a generation that have had to dig deep in tough times and have done so without complaint, but unfortunately to age gracefully, at times you do need to ask for help. Yes, you may have a wonderful network of friends or family, but sometimes it is just nice to know that there is actually a committed team that honours your happiness and existence and desires to make a positive difference in your golden years.
Please help our team keep all Seniors proactive in life and the community to maximize socialization.
