Wellbeing in Later Life
Are you over 55? Would you like to learn new skills to help you in later life? Do you have worries about what the future holds? Maybe you recently retired and are struggling to adjust? Or perhaps you’re just finding life isn’t as rewarding as you’d like.
This 6 week course aims to teach you skills and techniques to help improve your quality of life now – and to face the future with more confidence.
About Building a Healthy Future
Building a Healthy Future is a course aimed at improving people’s resilience, which is their ability to cope with life’s challenges, now and in the future. Courses are free and take place over six sessions for two and a half hours a week.
The courses aim to improve mood by teaching stress and mood management skills, ways to better handle fears and worries, relaxation techniques, as well as helping people make positive plans and acquire new life skills.
Courses are interactive, engaging and fun. We are currently running two different Building a Healthy Future courses. One is for people with Long-Term Conditions. The other is for people over 55 focusing on wellbeing in later life.
Both courses cover similar tools and skills but each has its own specific topics and themes. We are also looking to extend our resilience work to other groups.
The retirement course was like a key given to us. My sister and I used the key and opened the door to a whole range of new activities – retirement has been completely revamped and upgraded. Thank you for starting us off on this adventure.
