Rivers Extend Community Outreach

We have extended our wellbeing outreach programme to another residential home!

Rivers began providing light exercise classes for the elderly in late 2016. The sessions have proven to be extremely popular at their current locations, so much so that Coventry House has now been added to the list of venues.

Zumba Gold classes now take place every week in the common room at the home, located at the alms houses in Droitwich Spa and feedback has been fantastic!

Nigel Grundy, Fitness Manager at Rivers Fitness, helped arrange the classes and says “We feel that it’s very important for people of all ages and abilities to lead active, healthy lifestyles. Providing exercise in peoples’ homes really helps those who would otherwise remain inactive and we hope to reach out to even more people in the future”.

Quotes from residents:

“I am feeling a lot more energetic, the exercise is doing me well – aged 90”

“Well it’s so energising and makes you feel so much better and Eliana is patient and nice to us all”

“It’s a happy time with great music”

“Great atmosphere and fun”

“The teaching is lovely and we have a great time – 66 years old”
