The aim of this project is to co-design a lifestyle intervention programme – “Ageing Well in Outdoor Gym” (AWinOG) with older Māori. Kaumātua will be involved in developing a conceptual framework for the programme at a two-day focus group. Over a three month period kaumātua will carry out gardening activities and record observations related to strength, balance and flexibility. At the end of three months, the group will reconvene to review the process, data collected and formalise the programme.
This study was funded under Ageing Well National Science Challenge Emergent Opportunities grant.
