Medicine for older people gym opens

Thanks to your donations, not only have the renovations for our Medicine for Older People gym been completed, but innovative and cutting-edge equipment is now in place for use with our patients.

Our Medicine for Older People team helps elderly people who have multiple conditions, functional impairment, and complex care needs.

This means they need specialist equipment.

This allows our staff to better care for and support our patients.

Here’s what a new exercise class looks like:

1. Exercise bikes
2. Interactive games
3. Chair exercises

Interactive games help our patients to have fun while moving around as part of their rehabilitation.

It is an easy way to distract them from doing exercise.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support of our Medicine for Older People department.

You are helping our patients to get out of the hospital quicker through the use of targetted and fun rehabilitation!
