Exercise In Care And Nursing Homes

We have been a provider of health and fitness for older people since 2008. Working with hundreds of care and nursing homes across the country. We provide a wide array of services for the elderly and vulnerable including exercise classes, fun and fitness sessions, one to one support for residents, physio and massage therapies and falls prevention support for residents and staff. Gfitness has a team of highly qualified and well trained instructors that can offer content such as strength, balance and co-ordination exercises structured around physiotherapy treatments. We can also offer alternative exercise such as adapted Yoga and Tai Chi as well as fun games to engage and entertain.Sessions focus on support and development of participants physically, cognitively and socially, catering in these aspects for all ability levels.

We offer any homes, which have not previously had a Gfitness instructor, a FREE trial to see if their residents would enjoy regular sessions. Sessions can vary from 30 minutes to over an hour and are always catered to suit the needs of the homes and participants we are working with.

Content in sessions includes:

  • Strength and balance helping to reduce falls and maintain independance
  • Flexibility and mobility to manage degenerative conditions
  • Brain games to encourage cognitive stimulation
  • Adapted Tai Chi and Yoga content suitable for all ability levels
  • Massage Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Team Games
  • Movement to Music

We can also provide training sessions for staff and residents to help reduce falls risks in homes and the community. This also includes ‘Care Home Falls Assessments’ to evaluate and improve the prevention and management of fall risks. Please contact simon@gfitness.co.uk for this service and further details.

“Tanya comes to our home twice a week and is a breath of fresh air. She is always able to anticipate what the residents want from her be it exercise with music or just gentle massage. The atmosphere in the home really lifts whenever she is here and we all look forward to her visits, staff and residents alike. I can highly recommend her and would definitely have her here more often if I possibly could.”

“The sessions have proved to be very successful encouraging some of our residents to move around with confidence. It was also approved by CQC as they were visiting the home during a session.”

 “The residents we care for are living with late stage dementia so their cognitive understanding is extremely compromised as well as their physical abilities. Initially I was unsure how well the class would be received but I was very pleasantly surprised.”
