Health, well-being & lifestyle

Our Services Health & Wellbeing-min (2)Cooinda,  a lot of living

We believe staying active and socially connected is important for everyone’s wellbeing and sense of belonging.  As a result, Cooinda has a dedicated Health, Wellbeing & Lifestyle Team.  Our ‘wonderful’ Pink Girls plan daily social and light physical activities for people living in our residential care or respite care.

Most of all, we are a team of experienced health professional.  Living in Cooinda you will enjoy variety and … a lot of living!  Our zany, humour based therapy, ‘play up’, brings a lot of laughter and fun to everyone at Cooinda.

In addition, our fun playfulness and colourful activities are tailored to the each individual’s needs.

Furthermore, we understand that moving to residential care  can bring feelings of change and a loss of independence.  When you join our daily program, you will enjoy gentle exercise and social activities.  As a result, this encourages your mental alertness and physical and emotional feelings of wellbeing.
