Resident Margaret, who simply loves her fresh new hair colour, smiles for a photograph.
We’ve had the recent addition of a large television to our activity equipment. With this, Activity Therapist Olivia, has implemented gentle seated exercise activities into the weekly programme. Residents have enjoyed watching health educational programmes, learning about physical health and its benefits on overall wellbeing. We have sourced online workshops from the website of ‘Age NI’ who teamed up with Dame Mary Peters to launch an exercise programme aimed specifically at keeping older people moving during the extended Covid-19 lockdown. “Move with Mary” is a series of five exercise videos. They cater for every level of capability, ranging from simple seated stretches, to balance, strength and gentle aerobic exercises. This has been received brilliantly in the Care Home.
