Great to use for fitness activities, place the cones several feet apart and dribble a ball or even push a walking frame around - there's no age barrier to having fun. Why not include them in an obstacle course for care homes?
Team effort gets results with this Ball and Gutter game. Flexible beech wood rods form a channel into which the ball rolls, if everyone coordinates with each other, the ball can roll endlessly from one to another. Great fun for older care home residents and helps with communication and social bonding. 10 wooden lengths of varying lengths and 4 wooden balls - how many can you keep going at one time? Can be played seated or standing.
Our Cheerleader Pom Pom set is just the thing to wave during a gentle fitness session. With one each of blue, red, green and yellow, the lightweight plastic streamers waft about and help to tone upper arms and bodies - especially useful for older people in care homes. People with later-stage dementia enjoy waving them during music singalong sessions too! Washable.
Get ready, aim and throw! How high can you score with your beanbag? Can be played in two teams against each other (one team orange and one team blue beanbags) or singly. Great for practising numeracy skills for all ages and abilities. Makes a fun active game for older care home residents and can be played seated or standing. Game can be adapted for anyone with a dementia by leaving out the scoring and aiming for top, middle or bottom.
