We believe all of our residents are individuals and as such have different likes and dislikes. One of our residents is an avid gym member so when he moved into Yohden we were keen to support Graham with this and sent two of our activity coordinators along to the gym so that Graham could put them through their paces during his own gym sessions.
Healthworks gym in Easington supported us through this process with a thorough induction of the health and safety aspects of gym as well as the equipment and use of each machine. Sarah Robson, activities coordinator at Yohden Care Complex said “at first it was a bit daunting, I’d never been inside a gym for years but the staff at Healthworks put me at ease through the induction and Graham knew how to use all of the machines so I was more there to assist should he need it. We have a great time when we come along and by supporting Graham I actually feel like he enjoys the sessions more by showing me the exercises and the equipment”.
Why not come along to one of our coffee mornings on Friday 20th March at 10.30 and have a chat with us about your favourite activities and join in with one of ours. We’d love to welcome you into our community.
