chair classes at Right at Home with ctchealthcare

Healthcare specialists have teamed up with a Nantwich company to offer special fitness classes for elderly people.

Physiotherapists from ctchealthcare are staging chair-based exercise classes at Right at Home which has opened new offices on Hospital Street.

The company, which provides home-based care services, hosted a demonstration during its open day attended by Crewe and Nantwich MP Laura Smith.

Owner Ben Selby said: “Like ctchealthcare, we believe in giving older people in our community the chance to lead happy and fulfilled lives.

“Based in the heart of town in our new offices, we are accessible and would love to see many more older folk enjoying the benefits of regular exercise.”

Studies show chair-based exercise helps to increase strength and flexibility while reducing body fat and the risk of falls.

Sessions, to be staged monthly, include stretching and lifting small dumb bells to music.

Physiotherapist Adrianna Hynowska said: “Exercise lifts the mood, boosts confidence and can reduce arthritic pain.

“These classes are perfect for people with limited mobility.

“No special facilities are needed.

“Just a chair and an enthusiasm for trying something new.”
