Move with Mary

Age NI teamed up with Lady Mary Peters to launch an exercise programme aimed specifically at keeping older people moving during the Covid-19 pandemic. 
 
Move with Mary is a series of five exercise videos. They cater for every level of capability, ranging from simple seated stretches, to balance, strength and gentle aerobic exercises suited to older people. The videos have been developed In partnership to support the work of the Northern Ireland Frailty Network, Age Friendly Network NI, care homes and Age Sector Networks delivering locally for the benefit of older people. A booklet, ‘Keeping Well at Home’ compliments this online resource.
