The weekend is almost here! Unfortunately, it’s brought some rather cold weather with it.

We all feel the cold throughout the winter months, but the elderly are much more susceptible to suffering from a winter chill.

Remember to keep an eye on and regularly check in with your elderly loved ones and neighbours to ensure that they are warm and comfortable around these times. It’s recommended that they be dressed in layers and make sure that they keep their head warm. If possible, they should try to get some exercise each day, and eat healthy, nutritious foods to help keep their body warm.

This will go a long way to ensuring they have a comfortable winter this year.

Have a great weekend!

We hope you've had a good Monday. Take a moment to sit, relax and check out this short reflection on what it's like to work in Aged Care.

One of HealthStrong's Physiotherapists, William, recently sat down to think about his last three years in the job, and he gives us some valuable insights into what it's like, and how it's changed him for the better.

We hope you're all having a great Wednesday!

Have a read of this little case study put together by Rachel, one of our Occupational Therapists on the sunny Gold Coast. She discusses a resident with little hope for a number of years, who began to receive Occupational Therapy treatments, and saw a huge improvement in his quality of life. A great success story, you can take a look at it here: http://ow.ly/aVeH30cnyDA

Happy Friday to all!

Today, Stacey and Eddy at Opal by the Bay in Victoria would like to show off their new program titled 'Walk Around Australia'.
