Care…About Physical Activity

Physical activity resource pack launched for care homes …

A THOUSAND care homes in Scotland are being asked to join a campaign to support physical activity for older residents.
The Care Inspectorate, has launched a new multi-media resource pack, entitled ‘Care About… Physical Activity’ to help care home residents keep active.

Research shows that taking part in regular, simple physical activities can bring a host of healthy benefits.

Something as simple as making a cup of tea, going for a walk or taking part in a spot of gardening can make all the difference when it comes to helping people enjoy a better quality of life, especially as people get older.

And now the Care Inspectorate, in partnership with the British Heart Foundation National Centre for Physical Activity and Health at Loughborough University, has launched a multi-media resource pack to support those who work in the care sector encourage physical activity as part of every resident’s daily life.
