Some of Four Seasons Health Care home have put residents through their paces as part of a national campaign to encourage the over 50’s to take more exercise.

For example at Rydal Care Home in Darlington and Carlton Mansions Care Home in Bristol (pictured), the homes teamed up with a local Bannatyne Health Club to support the British Heart Foundation ‘30 a Day’ campaign.
Health and fitness managers from the local health clubs, visited the homes to lead a gentle fitness class and advise the residents on ways for the elderly to keep fit and active for as long as possible. 

The minimum level of exercise recommended by the Government is 30 minutes of moderate activity at least five times a week.  Meeting this target can cut the risk of heart disease in half, yet only 30% of British over 50s manage it.
