As part of BBE AAC’s aims to encourage senior residents to be mentally and socially active in conjunction with the PA Wellness Programme, residents learn about active ageing ‘hotspots’ which are ongoing social programmes and health interest groups conveniently located near residents’ dwellings to facilitate participation.
