PHYSIOTHERAPY AND REHABILITATION - DAY CENTERS AND ACTIVITY CENTERS
Games and sport contribute positively to the rehabilitation process! You have fun together with others, time flies while you exercise, and at best, you might even forget about your injury.
Day- and activity centers:
Sports and games can strengthen the community at the nursing home as well as at the day center and increase happiness and well-being.
Many nursing-home residents used to do sport, and they will be happy to continue to do so – adapted to fit their capacity, of course.
The products we recommend for rehabilitation and care centers all have these qualities:
- They are easy and safe to use
- They can be used inside with limited space
- They can be used sitting or standing
- They feature bright colours and are soft and pleasant to use.
- They look attractive and professional
- They can be cleaned and disinfected
For inspiration watch this video about the happy life in a senior petanque sports club:
An ideal sport that everyone participate in.
The boccia and/or petanque are very suitable rehabilitation activities: the balls are easy to hold, it can be played either sitting down or standing, and time just flashes by! It strengthens coordination, balance, and muscles while you are having fun.
Boccia and petanque are also suitable activities at care facilities. Both games only require a level surface and a small open space. You can play inside in the day room or in the corridors, or outdoors on the terrace, the lawn or on gravel. The balls are pleasant to hold and easy to see. Even people with severe visual impairment can join in.
You can play either one on one or form teams of two to three players.
Boccia and petanque are also particularly good activities for people suffering from dementia.
Boccia is a sport for everyone:
Can be played on very few square meters.
Great supplement to boccia or Petanque.
