PHYSIOTHERAPY AND REHABILITATION - DAY CENTERS AND ACTIVITY CENTERS

Rehabilitation

Sport and games can contribute positively to rehabilitation! You have fun together with others, time flies while you exercise, and you might even forget about your injury.

Day- and activity centers

Sports and games can strengthen the sense of community both at the nursing home and at the day center, and thereby increase feelings of happiness and well-being.

Many nursing-home residents used to do sports, and they will be happy to continue to do so – in a way that is 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 can be cleaned and disinfected
  • They look pleasing and professional

Boccia/Petanque

An ideal sport that everyone can participate in.

Boccia and/or petanque are great rehabilitation activities: the balls are easy to hold, both 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:

Multipurpose Sound balls

The pleasant rattling sound of the audible balls provides extra stimuli, which is especially important for the many visually impaired elderly people. Handi Life Sport’s wonderful audible balls are suitable for exercising in groups.

The audible balls can be used for a number of different activities and games. Seated in a circle, participants can use the balls to play sitting basketball, a fun and bonding activity. Alternatively, they can hand or throw the ball to the next person in the circle while everyone says the name of that person. Or participants can stand with support from a barre and kick the ball to each other. Or...

The rattling sound sharpens focus and concentration.

The sound balls are available in different sizes and materials. For more info look here: https://handilifesport.com/en/product-category/blind-sports/other-soundballs/
