Senior Programs

We want to create an age-friendly community that provides opportunities for people to be included, feel safe, have a healthy lifestyle, and to take part in activities that help them to be active and positive as they age.

Positive and active ageing is about:

  • connecting with others in your community
  • being as physically active as you can be
  • being as mentally active as you can
  • having access to services and facilities
  • being part of community events and activities
  • contributing to others or the community
  • having a positive outlook on life.

Our programs and services

We have a range of programs and services that support and encourage positive, active ageing in Glenorchy.

  • Our Positive Ageing Strategy outlines what we will do to encourage positive ageing in our community. The current  Glenorchy Positive Ageing Strategy is under review.
  • We offer a ‘driver-to-collect’ service for people who are not able to place their wheelie bins at the kerbside. If does not cost extra but you will need a Doctor's Certificate to access this service. Read more about this on our additional waste services page.
  • The Glenorchy Handbook of Positive Ageing contains a large range of activities for older people to participate in, keep active, enjoy and connect with others in the Glenorchy community. The activities are age-friendly, accessible, and free or low-cost.
  • We link people who want to volunteer with volunteering opportunities through our Volunteer Centre.
