The LVC Keep Fit Club meets in Loughton on each Wednesday from 2 – 3.30. Its aim is to promote physical and mental wellbeing, particularly amongst older people and is one of our social inclusion projects.
In addition to the chance to meet and socialise, each session offers 45 minutes of activity. Currently these are fun and games (light mental and physical exercise), group singing, seated keep-fit and craft (hand-skills) activities.
The role of the mentor is to assist in the delivery of the programme and to ensure that the activities run as scheduled. S/he will be joining a team of, currently, 3 volunteers, (although it is hoped to add to that). All volunteers encourage participation in the activities and ensure all attendees can access them. All LVC programmes are designed to be dementia-friendly.
Details of all LVC programmes and organisation can be found on our website www.loughtonvoluntarycare.org.uk
