Juniper community nurse, Janet Anderson, and dietician, Caitlin Warren, will be in Byford this month to host a Wellness Seminar to help seniors discover ways of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

“Losing weight and keeping it off is a challenge but it is a critical factor in good health, especially for older people,” Ms Anderson said.

“We encourage people to come to the session which has easy to understand and practical information that can be used straight away.”

Ms Anderson said by eating well and maintaining an ideal weight, older people can maximise their enjoyment of life, improve their relationships with others and increase their independence.

This one hour seminar, at no cost to all seniors, families and friends, will be held at Byford Hall, South Western Highway, Byford, from 10:30am on Tuesday, 17 June 2014.

Juniper, one of Western Australia’s largest providers of retirement, residential and home aged care, delivers a range of services and supports to enable older people to live independently in their own home.

For more information, contact Janet or Caitlin at Juniper Community on (08) 6464 6324.
