First and foremost our wellness spa is a place to relax and indulge but it does serve another purpose.
The evidence is clear that even a small amount of exercise can have a dramatically positive impact on quality of life for older people.
Improvements in muscle strength, balance and flexibility can help to reduce the risk of falls (one of the biggest threats to independence) and evidence shows can also reduce the risk of developing dementia.
The facilities within the wellness centre have been carefully designed to support older people, offering a dedicated environment for therapeutic exercise and wellbeing. Our pool provides a constant 1.2m depth – perfect for swimming, but also ideal for aqua aerobics. Research has shown that a heated pool that supports your bodyweight is a good exercise environment for arthritis sufferers or those undergoing rehabilitation.
So go on pamper yourself, but with purpose!
