Our team are heading out on the road during September and October to spread the word on all things Wellbeing.
The Roadshows are the perfect opportunity to show how Live Active can support inactive people or individuals who have mobility problems and other medical conditions that are impacting their overall wellbeing.
Marcin Luszcz, Wellbeing Co-ordinator for Live Active Leisure commented, “There are a number of barriers that present challenges when it comes to leading an active life, and these can increase significantly with age. Quite apart from the physical, mental and emotional success stories that we’ve seen, the long term impact of this on participants overall wellbeing will reduce pressure on the NHS in the area, and bring a far greater quality of life to the older community at large.”
Sessions vary across the area and include guided health walks, chair based exercises classes, and social circuits amongst others. There is growing evidence that highlights the importance of staying active throughout our lives, with particular emphasis being given to the third age.
The work being carried out by LAL in Perth and Kinross Communities will improve quality of life and long-term independence for individuals through healthy lifestyle choices. This in turn leads to a reduction in the risk of falls through strengthening muscles and balance improvement.As well as this, the groups on offer provide positive social connections for participants.
