Senior residents in Bicester have the chance to learn how to use their smartphone to get more active.
On Monday 22 January, Healthy Bicester and Cherwell District Council will run a free drop-in session to help residents install the NHS app ‘Active 10’ on their mobile phones, giving advice on how to use it to make the most health benefits.
The ‘Active 10’ app is very simple to use and like a pedometer or Fitbit will record how much walking people do. It is part of a range of mobile applications developed by the NHS within the One You campaign to help people making better choices for their health in order to prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease, and reduce the risk of suffering a stroke or living with dementia.
The ‘Active 10’ app training session will take place at Bicester Library in Franklins House, Wesley Lane on Monday, 22 January from 10am to 2pm.
People can come at any time for a one-to-one training with the council’s officers.
At the end of the session, residents will be able to launch the app, monitor their activity and track their progress.
