Age UK Wiltshire have established several Fitness and Friendship Clubs that run across the county. The clubs provide an opportunity for the older adult to spend around 50 minutes doing gentle exercise that is designed to help maintain independence and promote balance.
After enjoying a cup of tea and delicious biscuits, the exercise is followed by an indoor game, such as skittles, quoits or indoor curling (no ice required!). The afternoon concludes with a session of gentle tai chi and a guided relaxation.
People who come to the clubs say that they enjoy the club because the exercises help with mobility, in particular where arthritis can result in a stiffening of the joints.
