What our group activities coordinator says

I have the privilege of attending the Balanced Lives Programme sessions every Tuesday in Sheffield.

I have had the pleasure of watching our residents, some of whom suffer with dementia or other elements such as stiffness and arthritis. It is incredible to witness the residents remembering the movements and over time, becoming able to do the exercises so well. I truly believe the Balanced Lives course has benefited each and every one of our residents. They have all built up great trust with David and look forward to him coming, not just as an Instructor, but as a friend. They have great conversations, as David is very person centered and has taken time to get to know the residents as individuals. All family members of the residents have also built up a great rapport with David.

More about our Sheffield groups

Older residents making fantastic progress

Major achievements in fall prevention: Our programmes in Sheffield are proving to be hugely successful. Residents in Prior Bank Care Home are reporting rapid progress in mobility and have built up a great rapport with our mobility lead David Lipka. In particular, many of the older people on our Balanced Lives programme are benefitting from their new found strength and mobility.

Falls are a major problem in later years; but after a short time on our programmes, people are becoming steady on their feet and less likely to lose their balance. This is a major step forward in quality of life and helps those in later years to become more independent.
