What a shock for me yesterday. Fresh from a clean bill of heart health from my Doctor I find the Council region in which I live has the highest risk of heart attacks.
Yes. I get a clean bill of health and that I am at low risk of a heart attack. But I live in a community with a high risk of heart attack.
Having been diagnosed a year earlier as pre-Diabetic I actively pursued a healthier lifestyle. Watching the carbs I eat and walking most places within my ward when helping my rate payers has paid dividends.
That said the City of Unley has a fantastic active ageing program. A program that saw us become the first Council in Australia to be recognised by the World Health Organisation.
Seems many of you (my good neighbours) may need to know what we are offering to help you age. And we do offer much.
So. watch this space.
