TE ROOPU ORANGA

TE ROOPU ORANGA

Te Roopu Oranga was developed as a way of keeping mainly elderly folk living within the Taihape community active on a regular basis to assist and improve their health and wellbeing. Te Roopu Oranga membership ranges from 20 – 40 individuals aged from 35 to 90 years old and consists of kaumatua not only from our services directly but also kuia from Taihape Older and Bolder, Taihape Senior Citizens and other elderly people who have been referred into the group from Taihape Health Limited. The group enjoys Tai-Chi and Sit Fit twice a week with the kaumatua themselves facilitating the ‘Tai Chi ‘session and our kaimahi taking turns to deliver the ‘Sit and be fit’ component.
