Introduction to Years Ahead

This video introduces the Years Ahead program and the topics it covers.


Vehicle Safety

Buying a car involves many decisions and is one of the largest and most important purchases we make. This video outlines the importance of driving a safe vehicle. 


Health and Driving

Different health and ageing issues may affect your ability to drive. This video covers some of those issues and what you can do to stay safe on the roads.


Your Driving Future 

RACV encourages all drivers to drive for as long as they are fit to do so. This video outlines what you should do if you are not as fit as you used to be and driving is becoming difficult.


These videos outline important topics covered by the Years Ahead – Lifestyle Series presentations, including falls prevention in the home and physical activity for older people. 


Falls Prevention in the Home

Over 50% of hospitalisations from falls are people aged 65+. This does not mean falls have to be part of growing older. This video shows that identifying and removing hazards is a cheap and easy way to reduce the risk of a fall.


Physical Activity for Older People

It is very tempting for us to think that we are “too old” or “too frail” to participate in physical activities. This video shows that no matter your age or health condition there is an activity to help you improve your health and fitness.
