York Sessions Are a Resounding Success

After a positive response to our taster programmes in York during 2016, we have begun regular weekly courses at the Foxwood Community Centre, Cranfield Place.

Betty Sutherland, our Mobility Lead says: ‘We were very happy with the reaction to our taster courses last year and are now so pleased we can offer them on a regular basis. “

Positive Results

We are already receiving positive feedback: Here are a couple of recent case studies...

Angela's Story

Angela is a 68 year old lady who has Arthritis, COPD and experiences isolation. She liked the idea of an exercise group with a social aspect, but was worried her age would be an issue at Balanced Lives. Angela thought she would feel too young to be there. Our programmes cater for all ages, so Angela felt at home almost immediately. Not only is she enjoying the programme, her health and confidence are greatly improved. 

Alf's Story

Alf has lived in York for most of his later life. He is 69 yrs of age and has been left with limited mobility following a Brain Tumour. He has fallen a number of times, has a hip replacement and walks with a frame. He has a full time carer. The local physiotherapy department told him that nothing more could be done for him as they lacked resources. A council led exercise programme was also withdrawn because of lack of funds. He heard about us from a feature in the York Herald and joined the programme. Now, slowly but surely Alf is making progress. The programmes have made a huge difference to his life.
