Emily Tahiri

Meet Uniting AgeWell Exercise Physiologist Emily Tahiri, who loves seeing the results of her care in action.

Emily will bend over backwards to help her clients at Forest Hill AgeWell Centre bend over forwards. And she’s never happier than seeing them become more supple and mobile to go out and embrace all the adventures that their lives have to offer.

It’s hugely rewarding to see older people’s confidence grow, and the quality of their life improve. The physical changes bring about mental changes too.
