Keeping Well for Seniors Exercise Program
Continuing to exercise safely and on a regular basis is important as we age … it is important to maintain muscle, bone and balance function. With so many older people now confined to the home due to the COVID 19 emergency, it is more important than ever to take good care of ourselves. Doing some simple exercises at home can contribute to our physical wellbeing and put us in a better frame of mind, while we can’t get out and about
Thanks to a Seniors Festival Grant in 2019 the 4cs was able to develop an Exercise Program booklet in partnership with Jacquie Sekulovski from Exercise Science and Physiology. The booklet contains a series of simple exercises that Seniors can do in their own home or with others in a community setting. Download the booklet and remember to always seek the opinion of your health professional before commencing an exercise program.
