As we age, maintaining our physical health and overall well-being becomes increasingly important. Comlink Australia recognises this need and has teamed up with the University of Sunshine Coast (UniSC) and Aged Care Research and Industry Innovation Australia (ARIIA) to introduce an exciting new program called Champion Life Seniors. This guided in-home exercise program has been designed by health professionals to cater specifically to older adults, helping them stay fit, improve strength and balance, and ultimately lead more fulfilling lives. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at Champion Life Seniors and how it can benefit you or your loved ones.

What is Champion Life Seniors?

Champion Life Seniors is a cutting-edge program created to empower older adults to live their best lives. Developed in collaboration with health experts, this program revolves around functional movement exercises tailored to enhance strength, balance, and conditioning. The goal is to enable seniors to perform everyday tasks with ease, whether it’s tending to the garden, managing personal care, cooking, or simply keeping up with family and friends.

The Unique Approach

Champion Life Seniors takes a unique approach to improving the lives of older adults. It offers a personalised functional movement and well-being program that spans four weeks. Participants can work with a personal care assistant, accessing the Champion Life program twice a week, with each session lasting approximately 15 minutes.

Six Simple Steps to Better Health

Participating in Champion Life Seniors is easy and straightforward. Here are the six simple steps you will follow:

Free Assessment: You’ll begin with a FREE personal functional movement assessment and goal-setting consultation with an allied health professional. This helps tailor the program to your specific needs and goals.

Questionnaire: Complete a brief questionnaire about your current physical activity, general well-being, and quality of life. This information helps the program better understand your individual requirements.

Sample Videos: You’ll have access to sample videos that demonstrate low-impact functional movements. These videos serve as a guide to the exercises you’ll be performing.

Follow-Along: With the support of your personal care worker, you’ll follow along with the functional movement activities showcased in the videos. This interactive approach ensures you’re comfortable and confident in your exercises.

Mood Tracking: Before and after each session, you’ll have the opportunity to rate your mood using the Champion Life Seniors platform on an iPad. This valuable feedback helps gauge your progress and tailor the program further.

Feedback Session: At the conclusion of the program, you’ll have the chance to engage in a discussion with the UniSC team to share your experiences and insights.
