We believe in connection, which can come in many forms. And so, we have created a YouTube channel. There are a few videos, and we hope to add as we go. Enjoy!
Radio Carrum is local radio station set up at Carrum Primary School. Over the years Atticus Health Carrum has shared a special relationship with many local schools including Carrum Primary. We feel lucky to have a medical show on this very novel and positive local radio station. If you'd like to visit Radio Carrum, please follow this link http://radiocarrum.org/
This is the show! A big thanks to everyone who's contributed to our episodes. If you'd like to listen to Atticus Health with Dr. Floyd go to http://radiocarrum.org/shows/atticus-health-with-dr-floyd/
A few years ago the brains of Radio Carrum Marcus Mulcahy and Andrew "Pie" Adams had the idea of making the show more mobile...
They wanted to buy a caravan and deck it out, so that the station could be live at all the local sporting events and shows etc. And, so they could finally name something "vantastic". Atticus Health was approached to help. So we did. We donated $1,000 and the van was hauled from Geelong to it's home(s) at Carrum.
And that's it. We're so happy to have been a part of this. But really, this page on our website should be considered to be promoting the hard work of locals who make stuff like this happen. It's the likes of all those volunteers who take the time to make shows, contributed to the build of the van, make it run in the background. What about the kids? Kids are cool, and Radio Carrum has helped them express themselves and be a part of something unique and special. Radio Carrum and Vantastic, we think are "Driven by Soul" and again, something we're proud and feel lucky to be involved with!
Atticus Health is "Driven by Soul". Things that are soulful include the basics - home cooked food, connecting to nature and exercising! Sure, sometimes we need medications, but often times good food and staying active - is what keeps us well. And, if we've got an illness, often times these things are still so very important. We believe in these things so much that we set up gyms in some of our clinics, and intend to continue down this line.
Of course, it's great if you can get your exercise naturally - going for a walk, playing with kids etc. However, if you need a bit of start, then sign up. And - there are some great support groups which have sprung from our gyms... something we're particularly happy about.
The main thing is - use of our gyms. At present, these are located in Carrum and Hastings. Provided you get sign off from our exercise physiologist, you can basically attend whenever we're open. Or, you can join an exercise group and have a bit of fun!
You also get to access the member's only section of the website where you'll be made aware of any special events or offers and can communicate directly with Atticus staff over the website.
We also sell some products in some of our clinics, and this should grow. Members are entitled to discounts on these.
$180 for a 12 month membership ($150 for pensioners)
Yes. There are many health benefits of exercise for people with or who have had cancer. And, since so many of us are affected by this disease, these days, we've made membership free to these patients.
If you know someone who would get a free membership - please tell them about our gyms. We'd love to see them.
No doubt, once they join, the fact that a person has or has had cancer remains confidential, and doesn't get shared with other gym members.
Call Atticus Hastings on 5979 7777 or Atticus Carrum on 9773 3333 and they'll guide you. We'll give you a membership card - and, you're ready to go!
