The “Kintyre Krew” Gather for Daily Exercise Group
Posted by Lillyburn Care Home
Daily exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and our activity assistant Claire has organised a daily exercise group to music for residents and staff at Kintyre. The group has been getting fit every single day since the beginning of January and residents have named the group the “Kintyre Krew”.
Claire Gallacher said “We decided to start up a group chat with all our staff to discuss what we can do to spread happiness around the home for both the staff and our residents. A quiz was held first which was a fun way of getting to know work friends better. We have since played a variety of group games and are holding a Kintyre Awards Ceremony to congratulate all of our participants.
Our group soon turned into an exercise group which has been a huge success. Staff have lost weight and resident’s fitness levels have improved thanks to our daily exercise routine. Every day staff and residents join in for a 15-minute exercise to music videos which equates to walking a whole mile. We are looking forward to continuing this routine to keep fit and healthy.
