Our newly appointed Projects Officer

Active Seniors

The Active Seniors Program is a new program within Care Balonne that works with our senior Community members to reduce social isolation and encourage active lifestyles.
We are in the middle of creating a memories book for our residents in the Balonne Shire Community, we acknowledge the impact that Covid-19 has placed on the social engagement of our isolated senior residents, and we wish to capture this period of their life. The intent of the book is to also share their life stories and print a coffee table book to be collected for future generations.
