People, Workforce & Wellbeing

In this enlightening session, we will explore the transformative power of movement and exercise for mental health, with a special focus on care home environments. Physical activity is a cornerstone of mental well-being, capable of reducing anxiety, depression, and stress, and enhancing overall mood and cognitive function among residents."Beyond Boundaries: Inclusive Exercise for Every Body" aims to shed light on the critical importance of making exercise accessible to all care home residents, particularly those who may face mobility challenges or other barriers. We will discuss innovative approaches and practical strategies to ensure that individuals with varying abilities and conditions can reap the mental health benefits of regular physical activity.

Key takeaways from this session will include:

· Understanding the scientific connection between exercise and mental health for care home residents.

· Insights into inclusive fitness programs that have successfully enhanced well-being in care homes.

· Practical guidance on how to implement inclusive exercise initiatives tailored to the needs of care home residents.

Join us to discover how inclusive exercise can not only improve mental health outcomes but also foster a sense of community, belonging, and empowerment within care homes. Let's move beyond boundaries together and create a healthier, more inclusive environment for every resident.
