After the age of retirement it’s inevitable that life begins to slow down and for some, that can mean a less active and social lifestyle.
While many factors can contribute to diminishing health, being connected to the community, family and friends and keeping active is vital for long term health and wellbeing as we age.
Staying at home and independent in later years is also desired by many and yet can often seem daunting if day to day tasks are difficult or social connections are limited. With integratedliving Australia’s support, a growing number of the over 65’s across Port Stephens and the Hunter are enjoying the benefits of in-home care.

From group outings that provide social connections to opportunities to embrace technology or getting active in the state of the art gyms with tailored exercise programs designed to build strength and keeping fit and active, integratedliving provides innovative support options.
integratedliving Australia has recently launched Wellness gyms in Newcastle, Muswellbrook and Raymond Terrace, led by an Exercise Physiologist, giving customers a chance to improve their mobility and strength either individually or in a group environment.
