Better for life in Country SA - Woman exercising at home

Improve your health & fitness from the comfort of your own home.

The Better for life in Country SA program has been specifically designed for people aged 65 years and older who live in Country SA regions including the Barossa, Hills, Fleurieu, Kangaroo Island and beyond!

This exciting new program will empower you to improve your health and fitness from the comfort of your own home, and is brought to you by Southern Cross Care and the Country SA PHN.

About the program

Following an initial eligibility review and health assessment, program participants will take part in a 12-week program of personalised online exercise sessions, held twice per week.

The one-on-one and small group sessions will be run by a qualified exercise physiologist and will help to improve participants' strength, fitness, balance and general wellbeing. All sessions will be delivered online in a ‘telehealth’ format.

Participants will join the sessions using a desktop computer, laptop or tablet device and enjoy the live and interactive sessions over the internet.

Thanks to the support of the Country SA PHN, the telehealth sessions are delivered at no cost to participants. The only cost is a small $30 contribution towards the exercise equipment (valued at more than $80) that will be sent to the participants.
