We know that at All Together Better we like to be as fit and healthy as we can be. Making choices to eat healthy foods, drink plenty of water and manage stress are, of course, great things to do. Exercising effectively and regularly is also on the list of ‘good things’. Getting enough sleep is another great idea but how on earth do you manage all this?
Does it just seem overwhelming? Do you decide, at least once a week, to look after yourself better, only to find that a couple of days in you’re back into old habits?
If you want to maximise your sense of wellbeing, manage your weight and keep mobile and healthy, this is the place for you.
We get very bemused when people are totally amazed that anyone over 50 can move! Countless Facebook posts declare it ‘incredible’ that this ‘old lady’ can move so much or this ‘old man’ can run.
We consider movement to be essential to all of us and our passion is to take meaningful and safe exercise programmes to residents of care homes across the country. It is because anyone is elderly not despite their age that they could and should move as much as they can for as long as they can.
Because Not Despite I am Elderly (BeNDIE) is our older person exercise scheme. It is a simple, safe and effective way to ensure that every resident gets an individualised exercise plan that can be carried out by any member of the care team in the home.
We aim to make exercise a part of everyday life in your care home and offer a comprehensive scheme to help you to ensure that every resident is encouraged to be as mobile as possible for as long as possible. Exercise is known to have many physical benefits and also to help with mood and prevention of dementia. Keeping fit is one of the best ways of avoiding admission to hospital!
Marion is a Cancer Exercise Specialist who works with local cancer charities and also fundraises for Macmillan, they are our charity of the year and provide a wealth of information with their ‘Move More’ campaign.
We know that going through cancer can be tough. Do you know that exercise and a healthy lifestyle can really help? (Prof Thomas ‘Lifestyle and Cancer: The Facts HEP 2011) . Exercise has been shown to improve the chances of living longer and preventing recurrence of disease.
Marion has worked for many years in cancer care as a nurse and has advanced Personal Trainer qualifications in Cancer Rehabilitation. She runs the ‘Get Active’ programme for people on their cancer journey, and can bring this expertise to you in your home.
Whether you are newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment or surgery or your treatment has finished, Marion and her team can help. We know that it is easy to ‘lose yourself’ when you are coming to terms with cancer, but we can help.
Proud to be working with Macmillan Cancer Support.
