The ‘Safe and Sound’ programme includes sitting, standing & transitional movements, and is scaled and tailored to individual group abilities, & needs.

Done regularly, the exercises classes will help strengthen muscles, increase range of motion & flexibility and improve balance, all of which can reduce the risk of a fall, as well as increase confidence, mobility and promote healthy independent living

The programme includes the exercises originally recommended by Help The Aged, (plus the majority of of the rehab exercises issued by physio’s after falls, breaks, fractures, replacements etc on physio rehab sheets), the Otago & Later Life Programmes and is both cost effective and excellent value for money, as well as promoting a forward looking and positive caring attitude towards residents and life

Exercises are also recommended and included for arthritis, parkinson’s disease, heart problems, diabetes, for the prevention of falls, prevention of dementia and for general good health and wellbeing.

The classes cover the body from head to toe and offer a comprehensive full body & mind maintenance programme to keep you fit healthy for the rest of your days.

We also include bilateral assymmetrical exercises indicated in recent research to increase cognative ability and help stave off dementia.

With appropriate positive background music the class is fun, entertaining, and very beneficial for our general health, fitness and wellbeing.  

It is also suitable for all levels of mobility.

All instructors are CRB checked (enhanced), insured & qualified. All equipment is supplied, and sessions could possibly also free up staff time.


It is also great fun and helps to build a valuable community feeling between participants.
