This program is for mature aged patients wishing to stay mentally and physically healthy while improving quality of life and engaging with groups and services in the community.
Young @ Heart is run by a multidisciplinary treatment team and combines evidence based interventions such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and other strength based therapies.
Each session of the program offers group educational sessions, gentle physical exercise, memory training activities, and relaxation. The four key education modules include ageing gracefully, acceptance and forgiveness, coping with emotions and living in this moment.
