Exercise is important! But parachutes?

Exercise is a crucial aspect of maintaining overall health and well-being, especially for the elderly. At Aurem Care, we understand the significance of physical activity in enhancing the quality of life for our residents. Recently, at Aaron House care home in Penicuik, we made sure to incorporate exercise in a fun and engaging way by utilising a multi-coloured parachute.

Exercise is crucial

Despite the occasional showers, both staff and residents ventured into the beautiful gardens, where the play parachute became the centerpiece of a delightful activity. Parachute games offer a fantastic opportunity for a gentle yet effective workout. The up and down movements, combined with using the arms, provide an excellent form of exercise that promotes mobility and strengthens muscles.

Beyond the physical benefits, parachute games also create an enjoyable and social experience. Residents were able to interact with one another, fostering connections and a sense of camaraderie within our care home community. The laughter and shared moments of joy further enhance the overall well-being of our residents, promoting positive mental health and emotional satisfaction.

Engaging activities

At Aurem Care, we prioritise providing engaging activities that cater to the unique needs and preferences of our residents. By incorporating exercise in a fun and interactive way, we aim to create an atmosphere where physical activity is not seen as a chore but rather an enjoyable part of daily life.
