Age and Opportunity
Age and Opportunity was featured on Newstalk Lunchtime Live on 17 April 2020, supported by the #CommunityResponseIRL campaign
(at 49 minute mark)
Age and Opportunity provide a range of opportunities for older people who want to get more involved in arts and culture, sport and physical activity, civic engagement and personal development. They reach approximately 120,000 people all over the country.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, many of us have found ourselves housebound and unable to engage in any of the activities or classes we normally would. This is particularly difficult for older people who are self-isolating.
To try and incorporate some physical activity into our day we will broadcast three live 15 minute physical activity sessions a week that older adults can join along to – ‘Age & Opportunity Movement Minutes’. There will be a seated activity session, a standing activity session and the third will be a mix of seated and standing. Join us on our Facebook page each week for ‘Age & Opportunity Movement Minutes’ every:
- Monday @ 11am: Seated Physical Activity Session for Older Adults
- Wednesday @ 11am: Standing Physical Activity Session for Older Adults
- Friday @ 11am: Seated and Standing Physical Activity Session for Older Adults.
