Mearns and Coastal Healthy Living Network

by Aberdeenshire Health Walks ( Physical Activity, Social Activity )

Mearns and Coastal Healthy Living network, with the help of trained volunteers, currently offers 3 weekly health walks for people over 50 in the towns of Stonehaven (Mondays, 10am, Market Square), St.Cyrus (Thursdays, 10am, Town Hall) & Laurencekirk (Wednesdays, 2pm, Masonic Hall). We also support a monthly health walk from Edenholme Care Home in Stonehaven, every second Friday of the month at 10am. Mearns & Coastal Healthy Living Network, the charity who have set up and support these walks, works with organisations and groups in the community to improve the health of older people. The walks we offer are gentle and short, lasting a maximum of one hour and are designed to be sociable, fun and to suit all. Our health walks are for people over 50 who have been inactive and would like to increase their level of activity and health. We have received our ‘Dementia Friendly’ accreditation from Paths for All, meaning that at least one walk leader from each of our walks has completed the necessary training (risk assessments, awareness etc.), to welcome and support people living with dementia to join our walks.
