What is it?
We offer ten-week courses of The Movement. Each week we provide a circuit of exercises to help boost your fitness, flexibility and well-being. The aim of each course is to help encourage and teach you why exercise is important and how to exercise safely at home. All the exercises can be adapted to suit your individual needs.
Who can come?
If you have been diagnosed with cancer or another life-limiting illness, live within Rennie Grove’s catchment area and feel you would benefit from exercise, you can be assessed by the physiotherapist to see if the group would suit your needs.
How do I get referred?
Any Health Care Professional involved in your care, including your GP, can refer you. However if you are already known to Rennie Grove, you can be referred by a member of staff. Alternatively you can refer yourself by either phoning 01727 731000 or by calling into our Drop-in Session on a Tuesday morning between 9am and 1pm when our nurses will be able to advise and assess you for suitability.
What will happen when I get there?
In addition to the guided exercise circuit, refreshments are provided and you will have an opportunity to chat with the other participants. A physiotherapist or therapy assistant are available to address any concerns, or to signpost you.
When and where is The Movement Course held?
The Movement takes place every Thursday at Grove House from 11am till 12.30pm.
What does it cost?
