We have weekly, fitness group-based activities available to registered clients of Tamborine Mountain Community Care such as Chair Yoga and Table Tennis.

There are many benefits to these activities. Yoga Improves flexibility, strengthens muscles, improves posture and circulation, helps lower blood sugar and blood pressure, improves joint function, stimulates brain function and improves lung function – just to name a few.  There are also many added side benefits— reduce stress and tension, both physically and mentally, helping to calm the mind and relax the body! 

The Table Tennis activity helps hand- eye coordination, combats muscle atrophy, bone density loss, improves balance and reflexes.

Are you fit to drive? 

As we age many aspects of our health and well-being alter over time.  If you still drive, it would be good to consider if you are truly fit to drive. 

            Health professionals are qualified to check if you are medically fit to drive. If required, they will provide you with a medical certificate reporting on your fitness to drive. This certificate will either state that you are fit to drive, or that you are able to drive under certain conditions. You must inform Queensland Transport if you have a medical condition that could affect your ability to drive safely. Failure to report medical conditions can be dangerous on the road, and the penalties are high. 

Some common conditions that may affect your ability to drive safely include, diabetes, epilepsy, heart disease and stroke, arthritis and joint problems, eye and hearing issues, sleep disorders, dementia, Alzheimer’s, mental health issues, lung diseases, injuries and disabilities. This list is not comprehensive, so consult with your health professional. 

TMCCA provides Transport Services for Clients to go to their Medical Appointments and for reasons of Individual Social Support. There is also the local weekly shuttle bus and weekly coast bus.
