Active at home

We are sharing our active at home resources for older adults that have been created as part of our super-agers programme.

Hopefully you will find these resources useful to help maintain a healthy and active life when we are all spending more time at home.

Tai Chi movements with Geoff

Seated Exercise session with Ady

Resistance band

To complete all the activities in the seated exercise session you could purchase a ‘resistance band’.

Pedometer

You may also want to buy a ‘pedometer’ or a step counter – a simple piece of equipment to help you count the amount of steps you cover in a normal day – you may want to set a target or to improve on previous days.


Activity tracker

To track your activity levels we have developed an activity tracker, which will help you to set goals , track your movement and exercise weekly whilst helping you to think about ways you can stay mentally active and stay in touch weight people important to you. You can download the tracker booklet here.

We hope to bring you more exercises and activities in future weeks, so keep an eye on this web page.

Keep Moving…Keep Happy!
