Loose Valley Care Home hosts seated exercise class with Louise

We held a chair exercise class this morning at Loose Valley Care Home.

A motivational class, it focused on movements with the arms, hands, fingers and legs, feet and ankles, with instructor Louise Rose directing us with what to do.

Exercises included;

  • A warm up with leg, arm and head movements and toe and finger wiggling
  • Squeezing a ball in the hand
  • Shaking scarves up and down
  • Making a fist and pretending to box
  • Throwing bean bags into a bucket for coordination

Our residents really look forward to the class and we always have a laugh trying to remember the order in which we have to move our arms!
