Tao and many, many others believe in living life with a positive attitude. If you can’t do a yoga class, do some easy stretches. If you need help, ask for it but do what you can each day to live joyfully.

After 21 years of serving our community in the area of aged care, we understand that some people need our help to re-discover old songs, memories or activities that used to bring them joy. We can help them to still enjoy the sweet juice of life in a way that is meaningful to them.
