Here at Rotherwood we have taken it upon ourselves to try to include at least one exercise based activity and one gaming activity into our activity planner each week.
These gentle but effective exercise classes can help improve their strength, co-ordination and balance. Weekly classes will be run by our activity coordinators and will take place in our quiet lounge situated on the ground floor. Service users are invited to get involved and join in with these light exercise classes from the comfort of their own chairs.
So far residents have enjoyed various classes including chair based exercise, chair based dance, armchair tai chi and relaxation meditation. They have also enjoyed chair based games which include carpet bowls, basket ball, darts and many more.
The positive impact this has had on our residents has been great, not only has the exercise been beneficial towards their health but it has also shown immediate benefits to their overall mood.
