Healthy Active Living
SydWest Multicultural Services is proud to have funded and was part of the pioneers of the Healthy Older People Partnership (HOPP) program which was piloted in 2016 for elderly clients from non-English speaking backgrounds living Western Sydney. As SydWest, we continue to offer this program to our clients. We provide trained Care Workers who teach our aged care clients the key exercise activities aimed at improving strength and balance and can help reduce the risk of falls in the home.
