The residents at Elm Bank care home in Kettering embrace the importance of keeping fit in many ways, one of which is with Arm Chair Exercises.

We all know what the importance of keeping our minds engaged in active and stimulating activities and our bodies, it is vital for our health and wellbeing. One firm favourite with many of the residents at Elm Bank, is Arm Chair Exercises. The residents are thrilled to have the ability to participate in exercises while seated. It provides an opportunity for all to come together, socialise and share in the joy of an activity that gets the minds engaged and the body moving.

Marvellous Bindura, General Manager said, "The Arm Chair Exercise is a true winner for many residents here, it is amazing to see the residents smile when they are so engaged, and to know that they are benefiting a great deal from this activity in keeping their minds and bodies active. It allows for all to participate not matter what their ability is and gives them a sense of achievement.
