A free strength-based exercise program is now available to support older Tasmanians living with long-term health conditions. Primary Health Tasmania (Tasmania PHN) has commissioned Tasmanian- based organisation Healthy Business to deliver the Exercise Treatment Program in several areas across the state, including the Brighton local government area.

The 14-week course targets people who have – or are at risk of developing – chronic (long-term) health conditions, and are aged 60 or older, or an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person aged 45 or older. People can self-refer into this program (with health clearance from a health professional), or their GP or other health professional can refer.
