Promoting Healthy Lifestyles in IRT Self Care Communities

21 June 2018

This project provided retirement village residents with health information highlighting their personal health risks and opportunities for improvement in health status and quality of life.

In partnership with IRT and the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI), the Centre for Health Initiatives (CHI) conducted a ‘demonstration project’ in 2011 within three IRT residential communities in the Illawarra. The project involved focus group sessions, baseline health risk assessments, healthy lifestyle intervensions and and evaluation.
