Seniors Steady Steps Programme (upcoming)
Currently, Healthy Living NT conducts basic strengthening exercises for our senior clients with cardiac problems. We are looking at expanding this in the form of a ‘falls prevention’ programme to educate seniors from the general public.

For more information, please contact our Health Promotion Manager, Navin Chandra at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 08 8927 8488.
