Residents Active at Wi FIT - Alex House

 

Not All Teenagers are Scary!

 

Young sports volunteers in Eastwood (Notts) donated their time and enthusiasm to introduce new technology to older members of the community at Alexandra House Care Home. The group proved that they are far from the scary teenagers that we read about and showed that they can assist individuals with less mobility to enjoy sport, by showing how to use and interact with a range of games on the Wii fit.

The six Broxtowe volunteers shared their enthusiasm for sport and their appreciation of how sport can provide a stimulus, not only for movement but for social interaction and fun!

The students are all studying some element of sport in addition to their voluntary work. The group leader Julie Cole said ‘We had an amazing and rewarding time at Alexandra House, the teenagers were able to effectively explain how to play the games and they communicated well, we all look forward to revisiting in the Spring’

The Alexandra House residents learnt how to play skittles and  bowls on the Wii Fit, which has been donated to the Care Home  by Broxtowe Sport Volunteers.The sports, many of them had not been able to participate in for a long time, encouraged movement, competition and laughter.

The activity sessions now occur on weekly basis and bowls is a resounding success with the residents, Aida and Sandria are the top ‘gamers’.  They are about to learn the Countdown game and it is all very exciting for people who had never used computer equipment before.

Activities Co-ordinator Lorraine is amazed at how popular and stimulating these games are and how it has helped some of the quieter residents become more active in group situations. We are all ‘pleased that the Broxtowe Sports Volunteers visited us and it was great to see the young people mixing with our residents’

As our nominated annual charity we will offer our support throughout the year with joint fund raising events and hope you will feel that money is being well spent in this way.
Chief Executive  of the   Nottinghamshire Society, Michael Conroy said ’We are extremely grateful to Eastgate Care for choosing to support Nottinghamshire Royal Society for the Blind (NRSB) as their charity of the year.  NRSB provides a wide range of services to thousands of visually impaired people and their families across Nottinghamshire, ranging from information, advice and equipment to accessible sports, and social activities.  For more details please visit;    www.nrsb.org.uk

Scarey Time enjoyed by Alexandra House Residents

Events took a funny turn when staff at Alex combined the horrors of Halloween with the sparkles of fireworks and the festivity of food.
Relatives, friends and Staff  together with  residents enjoyed party food games and Costume competitions. Some great fund raising took place with the Tombola stall, netting £140 for the residents fund.
The  residents enjoyed dressing up and taking part in the whole event.
Hayley really is the star of the show with this super Pumpkin cake and a  fabulous smile to accompany it.
‘Friends and family were invited and all from age 9-90 plus joined in. With Apple Bobbing and a childrens fancy dress  too it was a hectic fun schedule’ said Marie.

The Three Witches of Eastgate — Lorraine, Gill and Rose, staff at Alex House dress the part and entertain the residents with their costumes. ) Not to be outdone, Ivy Booth (resident)  put up strong competition, complete with black cat.
