Health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. In striving towards overall wellbeing, people should be able to identify and to realize their aspirations, to satisfy needs, and to change or cope with their environment. As such, learning about health and the different aspects of healthy living enables people to increase control over and to improve their personal health.
Our Health Promotion Officer works with Richmond Wellbeing staff and clients to develop health-positive programs and strengthen skills and capabilities to take ownership of their health and lifestyle choices.
Available for free to Richmond Wellbeing clients, recent activities have included:
- Working towards smoke-free sites. With our commitment to providing a healthy environment, we offer support for staff and clients who want to quit smoking
- Regular “Healthy Lifestyle” programs run at each of our residential sites
- Inviting guest speakers from health organisations such as Diabetes WA and WA AIDS Council
- ‘Food Sensations’, a 4-week hands-on nutrition and cooking experience
