River Oaks and The Legacy Occupational Therapists Join Together For Sittercise!

Starting officially in March, Monday through Friday at 9:30AM in the Fireside Room, we are offering a new exercise program called Sittercise. This exciting new exercise program is being instigated by our new Life Enrichment Director Paula Frakes. Paula met with The Legacy Occupational Therapists and decided to collaborate with them by offering an exercise program that compliments the therapies they offer to our residents. Sittercise is for everyone! The goal behind this new program is to help our residents maintain or even improve their muscle tone and fitness levels allowing them to stay healthy and independent as long as possible. In this class the participants remain seated and we utilize strength and toning bands to help strengthen various upper and lower body muscle groups. After each class we also add some competitive fun to our time together with bean bag toss and balloon toss. All residents are encouraged to come join the fun and try out this new program!
