Faithfull House care home now has a fantastic physiotherapy gym room thanks to a generous donation from ‘The 29th May 1961 Charitable Trust.’
The space includes equipment which gives multiple health benefits to residents, including rehabilitation from surgery and falls, increasing mobility, improving strength and building confidence and overall physical well-being.
- Rehabilitation Corner Steps
- Recumbent Exercise Bike
- Gym Ladder
We’re so delighted to have this new room! Residents are already enjoying time in it with supervision and support from our trained staff, and feeling the benefits.
Faithfull House resident Irene is delighted with the new facilities, “It is quite remarkable to have access to this equipment, living in a care home. I hope to maintain the mobility I have, and maybe improve as well. One thing for sure, it makes me feel good doing it.”
Isabella, who also lives at Faithfull House comments, “I think it would be a shame not to use it. If it can help me remain mobile longer, I am all for it. I feel good about myself, seeing what I can do.”
Our Physio Martin, the brilliant instigator of the project, commented, “Having a gym is a unique opportunity for our residents to keep fit and optimise their functional abilities. Beyond the multiple health benefits, it gives the residents new goals to focus on, which motivates them even more. It is never too late to build strength, and the residents can start feeling the difference just a few weeks after using the gym.”
We’re proud to have a team of professional physiotherapists to support our care homes residents who live with us and help teach our teams.
