Our ninth episode of The Better Ageing Podcast has come just in time for the warmer weather down under! In this episode we discuss good posture, and how to manage the heat in the warmer months.
Together Jason and Jane provide easy to follow advice that will get you thinking about your own posture, with tips on how to achieve a good posture, and what the effect posture has on our body. Geriatrician Jane then shares her advice on how to avoid heat stress, and the warning signs to look out for, particularly for those elderly loved ones you care for.
