The Love to Live Program, with Michelle Harrison and Mike Thomas

Season #1 Episode #4

Julie speaks with Michelle and Mike, the founders of the Love to Live Program that runs in aged care facilities to entertain residents and that provides a number of others benefits too. Michelle tells us how the program came to be, stemming from a personal story involving her mother-in-law, as well as a bit about how the program runs.
Mike and Michelle then share some of the benefits of the Love to Live Program for residents in Aged Care Facilities, and some of the success stories that have come from it. Mike then explains how he and Michelle are bringing the program to a wider community by training other instructors and also training staff in Aged Care facilities.
