Exercise is proven to be pivotal to health and wellbeing. Exercise or regular physical activity can reduce the risks of major illness, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and lower the risk of early death by up to 30%. It is an essential factor in weight management and shown to be beneficial in reducing pain, maintaining bone and muscle strength, and even improving skin health. In addition, it can improve self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy levels, as well as reducing the risks of stress, depression, and dementia… Ultimately resulting in an overall healthier and happy life.
The NHS York Health and Care Partnership Nursing Team invited providers to take part in our "Post Covid, Inter-Care Home and Supported Living, Summer Olympics" which took place across 8 weeks during summer 2022. 32 Care providers from across the area took part in their own Olympic style event to support physical activity and fight de-conditioning for those in their care. These were filled with a wide range of activities including everything from wheelchair races to rounders, paper plane competitions and even weightlifting demonstrating the amount of creativity in our local care sector. We also included a list of suggested set events which allowed your providers to rise up our overall medal table!
