we have a very successful exercise program which deals with stretching and movement.we incorporate ball catching,throwing and bouncing.At the end of every session we use foam pool "noodles" to hit the ball along the floor back and forth between the residents.They get so much fun out of this and it adds to their reflex and co ordination. Sometimes I think they come just for that aspect of the session. Your article are so helpfull keep up the great work.

Hi there, does the Carers website sell CD's / DVD's e.g. "heads/shoulders/knees and toes" and others. The residents of the dementia unit I find myself "filling-in" on a regular basis, enjoy it when we have exercises, the above would an add-on to my active games programs. Thank you

I consider that lifestyle program evaluation form would be done, specifying for how long the program has been running or trial up in place; what are the goal and expected outcomes.
Name of the program:
Is this program new: Y N
Sessions per week
Group size and mix
What is the Feedback from residents, or relevant stakeholder, staff or volunteers about the program? Positive/Negative
Group size and mix
Has the program met the goals or expected outcomes? What evidence is there of the success of the program.
How will the program be improved or improved residents wellbeing?
Hope this will help you.

Thank you for this outline. I have started to introduce more physical activities at our centre. This was lacking previously and we now have ball games, balloon throwing, bean bags, golden carers DVD stretching movements and also gentle chair dances on DVD. At present this is all going very well

I need to follow this through with the appropriate documentation and evaluations. So management can see the benefits this is having on our clients. Do you have anything I can use for feedback forms or evaluations?
I look forward to your response.

Cheers Debbie
