Sky high ambitions for 80-year-old Veronica

Written by Freya Griffin, Communications Partner with integratedliving

When asked by her family what she wanted for her 80th birthday, our client Veronica was quick to request, “I’d like to jump out of a plane, please.”   


Over the passage of time we all develop comfort zones. Some of us, especially during the pandemic, have embraced new comfort zones, while others have felt challenged by new lifestyle restraints.

For our launch episode of the Live Well Podcast, we speak to senior Australian, Veronica, who shares her story of challenging her comfort zone as part of a wish granted by her family for her 80th birthday – jumping out of a plane!

You read right, Veronica chose to go sky diving for her 80th birthday. Learn how Veronica mentally and physically prepared for this challenge in this episode, as she is joined by integratedliving’s Senior Exercise Physiologist, Judith.
