Exercise is fun across belmont healthcare care homes

Staying fit and active in their own way are the Group’s four care homes, who prefer a more fun time approach to staying fit – and it’s much more fun than Zumba!

From armchair exercises, to karaoke singing sessions, and the odd boogie or twerk or two, residents and staff enjoy staying fit and active with fun and enjoyable tasks that don’t take any effort to participate in.

Tracey Crittenden, activities coordinator at one of the Group’s four homes Haslington Lodge Care Home says: “Staying fit in our way is the only way! From gentle armchair exercises which focus on joint mobility, to getting on our feet to sing a song or two, and then of course the much more energetic dancing, which I personally like, we have it all. The best bit is it doesn’t feel like exercise, it’s just good old fashioned fun that everyone no matter ability or mobility can get involved in.”
