‘We don’t stop exercising because we grow old, we grow old because we stop exercising’
In 2012 Ministry 4 Sport launched its ‘Gentle Exercise for the Elderly’ programme. We now deliver the programme in over 30 nursing and care homes across Staffordshire and Cheshire. We work closely with the homes and their activities teams to provide the highest quality service. Our programme is designed to help residents with their co-ordination, concentration, communication and socialising skills whilst also helping to keep their mind stimulated.Our team uses the most up to date equipment to make these sessions as fun and engaging as possible.
Our programme helps with things such as: mobility, balance and coordination, improved aerobic capacity, strengthening and flexibility. It also helps promote teamwork, social skills and problem solving, reduction in anxiety and depression and improved emotional well-being, decrease in pain through stiff or immobile joints, positive relationships and personal empowerment. We achieve this by using a range of exciting equipment and sensory resources.
