RENEW launches New Courses 2015

Clients who have attended say;

“The course has made me more mobile, flexible, has made me aware of the fact that I need to look after myself better and given me the motivation for it.”

“It is good to meet other people with the same or slightly different needs. I am basically stuck at home so this course has improved my well-being physically and mentally.”

Truro-based health experts, The Core Health Consultancy, have been commissioned by NHS Kernow to offer a programme of free, chair based exercise courses within Cornwall.

Our RENEW courses are offered for those with Neurological conditions such as Parkinsons, MS, Stroke, head and spinal injuries.  These courses are FREE to the participant. Patients can refer themselves or can be referred by a health professional, GP or carer.

The RENEW course promotes strength, mobility, balance and stability, and improvements to quality of life. The exercises prescribed are designed to develop daily functional movements which in turn increase the clients’ confidence in their own abilities.

Each class will last 90 minutes, and is a gentle exercise class specifically designed for people with neurological conditions or those recovering from neurological damage. Each session comprises of 60 minutes of gentle, seated exercise and will finish with a hot drink and a chance to chat with your instructors about your health conditions and lifestyle. You will also receive an exercise booklet to enable you to continue your exercises at home.

The 12 week course will help people make lifestyle changes which will have a positive impact on their health as well as boosting their self-confidence and offering the opportunity to make new friends. The courses will be run in community venues in the following areas, starting in September 2015: Falmouth, Newquay and Liskeard and in Redruth, Carnon Downs and St Austell in January 2016.

It is recognized that strength and function can be increased when clients participate in these type of programmes, thereby saving costs to the NHS through falls prevention and maintenance or improvements to conditions.
