Tai Chi taster sessions for older people

Posted: 22/07/2009 15:18:46

A special event for older people will bring a host of experts together under one roof to give advice about everything from keeping fit to keeping your blood pressure down.

The event for older people, which takes place at the Bromyard Centre from 9.30am to 1pm on Thursday, July 30, will also give people the chance to watch gentle keep-fit and Tai Chi sessions to show how enjoyable a daily keep-fit routine can be.

Visitors will be able to take part in a number of interactive activities, have health checks and have their questions answered at information stands.

“Refreshments will be available so this is a great opportunity to come and have a chat to officers from the PCT and the council to find out what services are available to older people in and around Bromyard,” said Jo Pewsey, one of the organisers of the event.

“The aim of the day is to improve physical and emotional wellbeing for older people. We’re doing this in a fun and enjoyable way,” added Jo.

During the morning visitors will have the opportunity to have their walking aids MoT’d and food taster sessions will be taking place. Among the teams and organisations which will be on hand to give advice and information on the day are:

• Halo Leisure – exercise demos for people with restricted mobility
• WRVS – tasters of meals on wheels
• Walking aids MOT
• Blood pressure checks
• Balance checks and falls prevention advice
• Trading standards – “Think Twice” - consumer and safety advice for older people
• Community Transport
• Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service
• Pension service
• You@home – handy man service, Home Energy Efficiency Service, home safety
• Age Concern – footcare advice
• Refreshment area

“We’ve held a similar event in Hereford and this will be our first wellbeing event Bromyard and it promises to be a very exciting day which has the potential to change the lives of those who attend.

“We’d encourage anyone who is aged over 55 to pop in and join us for a cup of tea or coffee while we chat with them to explain what’s on offer and who to see first.

“The council and NHS Herefordshire provide scores of services which improve the quality of life for the county’s older people. If you’ve got any burning questions or want to find out what’s available, you need to get along on July 30.”
