Exercises for the elderly and vulnerable

8 Jan 2021

Keeping active is vital to maintaining and improving physical and mental health, no matter the age.

There are a growing number of ways in which older people can stay active.

Saints Foundation has developed a series of indoor exercises suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.

From marching on the spot to arm curls, the Foundation's 10-minute workouts require the minimum amount of space and equipment.

The restrictions of exercising within a limited space, or with mobility difficulties, have been addressed by Albion in the Community's video of gentle seated exercises, which include foot rotation, side stretches and rolling the head.

These exercises and similar ones are spelled out in the NHS's Live Well hub, which is full of useful tips and exercises for the elderly or vulnerable.
