‘100 Days of Health’ kicked off at several TLC’s homes with staff and residents making smoothies using their own pedal power. The smoothie making bikes were a great opportunity for people to burn a few calories and enjoy a healthy refreshment.

The ‘100 Days of Health’ initiative will run until  November 2015, with a different health and wellbeing theme each week. Some of the themes for the weekly activities include physical activity, healthy eating, financial health and safety. Each week will see a range of activities for staff and residents including a pedometer challenge, health checks, fitness classes and information sessions.

TLC chief executive officer Mr Lou Pascuzzi says that the health and wellbeing of staff and residents is integral to TLC’s culture of care.

“Keeping our residents fit and healthy is TLC’s highest priority, but it is also important that our staff are focused on their own wellbeing so that they can provide the level of care our residents expect.

“‘100 Days of Health’ is a great way for TLC’s staff and residents to focus on their health and there are some great initiatives to help them make active lifestyle choices.”
