Coming back by popular demand! We are currently organising the start of a new round of Diabetes Group classes that will now run under our 3R’s Banner – Re-educate, Restore and Reclaim.
Diabetes does not have to define you or be the centre of your world. Come and learn some background about the condition and why it does what it does. Learn ways to take back control of your life and be happier and healthier, despite Diabetes.
Group classes are a great way to do this. You will learn useful knowledge and skills, you will meet other people who share a similar journey, there will be exercise, laughter and community.
The program will consist of 2 individual assessments – one before you begin and another after you have finished, and 8 group sessions made up of 1 hour of exercise and 30 minutes of education. There will be handouts to take home, a home-based exercise program for you to do at home and feedback to your doctor.
You will require a Medicare Group Allied Health referral from your doctor to join this program.
We are in the process of organising a new location to run these groups. It’s not finalised yet and so we will do an update here when it is, but at this stage it looks like we will have a great gym, easy, relatively flat access and free parking on site. More to follow.
