Seniors

The Town’s Community Enrichment Officers play a key role in supporting and enhancing the quality of life for older people and people with disabilities within the community.  The Council funds and facilitates programs and services and acts as a referral point for care needs and health, housing and accommodation, sporting and recreation needs.

The Town regularly engages with residents to identify seniors’ needs and wants and the correlating strengths and barriers in service provision in our local communities. This information is used to develop strategies to address any identified issues, plan for the future needs of our growing senior population and ultimately be recognised as an age friendly community.

For more information please contact the Community Enrichment team on 9383 6600 or email admin@mosmanpark.wa.gov.au.

Prime Movers Exercise Class

The Town of Mosman Park welcomes Prime Movers to Alf Adams Pavilion at Mann Oval on Solomon Street where you can join the low-cost classes for $6 as a visitor and $5 for members. Annual membership is $20.

Prime Movers Inc. is a well-respected, not-for-profit organization which promotes well-being through exercise for women and men over 50. Prime Movers’ classes teach active, older adults to exercise safely.

Exercise is of primary importance to quality of life so the classes are structured to include stretching, low impact aerobics, balance and muscle work, all carried out in a friendly environment to popular music.

Through exercise you can:

  • Age positively
  • Slow the ageing process
  • Lower your blood pressure and heart rate
  • Improve fitness, flexibility and mobility
  • Find new confidence and make friends

Prime Movers sincerely appreciates the generosity of the Mosman Park Men’s Shed for equipment to help get the classes underway.

Don’t hesitate! Come and enjoy the fitness, fun and friendships. Classes are for one hour on Tuesdays at 9.30am and Thursdays at 11am.  See you there and remember to invite your friend for free.
