The Shire of Augusta Margaret River and various local organisations run activities and programs catering to senior residents in the region. 

Getting involved with these initiatives is a great way to remain active, socialise, and connect with the local community. 

Young@HEART program

The Young@HEART program is held at Margaret River HEART every Monday morning from 10am to 11am. The program does not run on public holidays or when there is another major event in the foyer.

The initiative was developed to safely encourage participation in the arts among older residents (over 60s) during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Due to high interest, the free performances have since been opened to people of all ages. Nonetheless, the senior demographic still makes up the majority of the audience.

Strength for Life program

The Strength for Life™ program is designed specifically for people over 50. Each participant is prescribed their own individual exercise program to meet their needs. The program caters for people of all abilities and encourages participants to start slow, work at their own pace, and progress as they get stronger.
