TNS FC Foundation Care Home Delivery
TNS Foundation provides physical activity sessions within Care Home settings. Active and Healthy Lifestyle Coordinator Shelly McGlinchey regularly visits New Fairholme and Windsor House to provide residents with sessions tailored around their health needs. We also work with Age UK covering all their Daycare Centres and Dementia Groups in Shrewsbury, Whitchurch, Market Drayton, Wem, Ellesmere, St Martins and Oswestry. We provide exercise to music, Boccia and New Age Kurling.
- EXTEND – Seated Aerobics
EXTEND is a gentle exercise plan aimed at the over 60′s or those with reduced mobility. The class concentrates on strength, toning and flexibility and is modified to suit individual fitness levels. We want to make exercise accessible to all ages and abilities.
This plan is good for reducing the risks of cardio-vascular illnesses including strokes and heart disease as well as the risks of diabetes. It also helps individuals recover and regain mobility and strength after age-related illnesses, but anyone will benefit from the session.
- Zumba Gold
Zumba Gold is a less strenuous version of the Zumba class which hit the fitness scene in 2012. Participants are able to do this class in a seated position if necessary.
- OTAGO – Falls Prevention
These classes are part of a falls prevention programme and are aimed at those over the age of 60 who wish to reduce the risk of falls which can result in reduced mobility in older age.
- PSI – Postural Stability Instruction
Classes are aimed at people age 60+ who feel a bit unsteady on their feet. They may feel a bit off balance, or at risk of a fall. Taking part in classes has been shown to boost confidence and independence both in and outside the home. More than just an exercise class, the instructors are specially trained to help increase core strength – strengthening the muscles to maintain posture and balance.
These sessions are available upon request. To arrange a taster session, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
