Experiencing the Health Benefits of Tai Chi and Ukulele
Written on the 21 June 2017
At Community Living Australia, there is always a major focus on encouraging clients to be involved in local community events across all our regions. At our Goowla Day Options, a few of our clients are regularly participating in both Tai Chi and Ukelele classes.
Both of these activities are well known for their effects on improving physical and mental health.
Speaking to Sue Von Stanke, Team Leader for Goolwa Day Options who said that 'Four of our clients began to show an interest in these community activities and have been attending for quite a while now. Each client has their own Ukulele and they get the opportunity for plenty of practice at Day Options during the week with all of them showing some real improvement.'
'It is great to see a group of our guys getting involved in some local community activities that interest them and that involve them learning some new skills whilst out in the community. They all really seem to be enjoying the new challenge,' added Paula Roberts,Regional Manager for Fleurieu, Southern Metro and KI.
