Taking The Lead With Dance
Posted by Lillyburn Care Home
Physical activity is a fundamental part of staying fit and healthy, this importance is amplified in the elderly. Care About Physical Activity has been the focus of the Care Inspectorate over the last 18 months and Lillyburn Care Home has been using an audit tool suggested by them and we are currently looking at different ways to incorporate more physical activity in the daily lives of our residents.
Today, staff held a music and movement class, including residents from all floors. The group had fun moving to some of their favourite music and afterwards enjoyed afternoon tea together and a good old chin wag about the benefits of keeping active.
Marie Galligan, Practice Development Co-ordinator commented, “small changes can make a huge difference to a person’s well being.”
