My story

[p]I am in the process of training to be a Love to move deliverer. [/p][p]Love to Move is an age and dementia friendly seated gymnastics programme which is transforming the lives of people living with dementia. It is unique and is designed specifically to increase cognitive reserve. (Cognitive reserve is the idea that people develop a reserve of thinking abilities during their lives and that this protects them against losses that can occur through ageing and disease. [/p][p]The programme contains movement patterns that improve bilateral coordination and also supports cognitive function for everyone not just those living with dementia. Each exercise is selected to work on different parts of the body and most importantly different parts of the brain.[/p][p]Since the pandemic hit, the pressure on the social care system has grown and Love to Move wants to be part of the solution, helping people to live at home independently for longer and improve quality of life by engaging with more care homes and community groups through their programme. [/p][p]Therefore I am raising money for Love to Move to support them to help fund additional Love to move sesdions in care homes, community settings and to pay to train more Love to move deliverers. [/p][p]Please donate if you can to supporting the British Gymnastics Foundation Charity in providing this much needed programme in our communities [/p][p]My 10,000 steps a day starts on Thursday 1st of July.[/p]
