A few weeks ago we reported that Scheme Managers and Trainers attended a training session to enable them to provide Flexacise session within the Extra Care Housing.
We are pleased to report that Gibb House staff and tenants have embraced this and had their first Flexacise session this week. Here are a number of pictures of their antics.
Being able to offer Flexacise within the schemes has a number of benefits. Active living is vital to retaining independence. We are keen for our tenants to remain as independent as possible without the need of engaging with care & support services. With Way Ahead Care having a 24hr presence in all schemes we are able to provide sessions at more flexible times. This ensures that it can be available to as many tenants as possible.
Flexacise is nothing new. As a concept is provided in most, if not all Residential and Care Homes up and down the country. Session are also put on in gyms and village halls for people of all ages, shapes and sizes.
Way Ahead Care are now able to provide this session ‘in house’ across all our Extra Care Housing Scheme portfolio.
