Chair Dance (Dementia Friendly)

  • Beech Hall Care Home, 1 Far Fold Lane, Leeds
  • Monday
  • 10:30 - 11:15
  • Older Peoples Health

Join in this fun seated workout including a wide range of low impact exercises that will leave you feeling energised without leaving your chair. 

Benefits of Chair-based exercise activities include increased mobility, reduced stress levels, improved flexibility + strength as well as increased positivity! Engaging in this fun session will help "increase confidence + happiness through dance" as well as help to reduce the risk of dementia. Studies have shown that people who exercise on a regular basis experience a slower loss of brain tissue as they age, just participating in this activity for 30 minutes will be beneficial for cognitive health.

For participants who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia this class is a great way to provide emotional and behavioural benefits through listening and singing along to the music - Music memories are often preserved because key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged by the disease.

This session is being delivered as part of the Over 50's Health Intiative and is currently a closed dance session but if you would like to see how this initiative could work within your organisation you can book in to visit the session. Contact Chief Wellbeing Officer Sophie Simpson for further information.
