My work with older adults began with those well into the aging process - my clients were those in the mid 80s and beyond. They taught me so much about how lifestyle can make an enormous difference to the way the we experience aging, and that regular physical activity can literally save a life.
Age Sister is a culmination of my research, teaching, and work in the community with older adults. Along the way, I noticed a gap in support and resources for women over the age of 50.
I want to help women feel powerful at any age – this starts from taking back ownership of your health. I also believe that the way that women of our age can feel less invisible, is to learn about the strength of our own bodies. This may be a time in our life that we are at an increased risk for chronic disease, but it is also a time when we have the most resources to make profound changes to our health.
It’s time we redefined what it means to be a 50+ woman. Are you in?
Your sister in health,
Kate Milne, Founder
I love human movement. I want to help you to feel strong and capable in your body, regardless of your age or current level of function. I also believe that anyone can improve their health and feel better about themselves with the right support.
I’m not interested in body-shaming, bullying tactics, or following the latest trends. In the true spirit of health promotion, I care about you being able to feel capable and confident to carry out changes to best improve your own health.
