Seniors: healthy ageing

Staying active is important as we age, especially if we have health conditions.

Regular physical activity can improve your health and wellbeing, and make it easier to perform daily tasks.

Green Prescription

A Green Prescription (GRx) can assist in healthy ageing by offering advice and support to increase physical activity and improve nutrition. About 20% of GRx issued each year are for people aged 65 years and over.

To start your own GRx, ask your GP or nurse for more information.
