Your Trust would like to work in partnership and support residential/care home residents and staff in the Rochdale borough to live more active, happy and healthy lives.
We have three options to enable us to provide the best support.
Free Online Classes
We are looking for a number of residential/care homes to be part of a trail for our new Free Online Classes.
The Free Online Classes are made up of a fully accessible library of 12 videos featuring evidence based exercises to improve muscle strength, balance and co-ordination, allowing participants to maintain independence and move easier through day to day activities.
The videos progress from fully seated exercise, postural stability, strength and balance beginner, intermediate and advanced levels and finishing with a cardio session and can be done as a group or as an individual.
All videos are fully adapted and all include a seated variation of each exercise as well as a more advanced moves to enable all participants to work at their own ability and progress as and when they feel ready.
Videos can be used in order as a 12 week progression, or individually based on the level most suitable for your participants and their ability. For support study chairs can be used if in a group based environment or tables, walls and kitchen counters if on an individual basis at home.
Each video is approximately 25mins long and consists of a warm up, main section and a cool down and stretch.
We also include a sheet of the Super 6 strength and Balance exercises to accompany these videos and to promote exercise every day, and a link to the Moving Medicine Get Up and Go – A Guide to getting steady booklets which contains much more information on reducing falls risks and improving strength and balance.
