Latest Laois News: Fitline service available for older Laois people to feel healthier
FitLine is our volunteer telephone line designed to help older people who want to feel a bit healthier, but perhaps don’t have the motivation, confidence or information on where or how to take that first step. The service is completely free.
We’re encouraging people to free phone 1800 303 545 and learn more. After you’ve made the first call, a FitLine mentor will arrange a time to ring you every two weeks until you’re happy with your progress.
FitLine mentors are volunteer older people who understand the challenges of getting active. They’ll give you information, advice and gentle encouragement to get moving.
Recommendations from some of our FitLine participants:
“Having that social connection FitLine provides, has been invaluable during this time, and the motivation and support are wonderful,” said Bridie, Dublin.
“I have been with FitLine for a few years and it gives me a great lift to get a phone call every couple of weeks. They have good advice. I live on my own and I love having someone from FitLine ring me regularly,” said Joe, Dublin.
“FitLine gave me the push I needed to stop making excuses to get up and get active,” said Anne, Cork.
