This Well for Life educational package assists physiotherapists and occupational therapists to facilitate a workshop or seminar with residential care staff to raise awareness of the many benefits that physical activity brings for residents of aged care settings.The package is intended to be delivered as a short, informal seminar or workshop, usually over two hours. Participants would normally be staff members of a residential care setting who work directly with residents. The package is designed to ensure that the session leader has a clear and logical program to follow and to limit the amount of additional preparation required to deliver the session. The program is divided into two modules that can be delivered as one session over two hours or two sessions of one hour each.
