Would you like to help older people make the most of later life?
Keeping active is extremely important for maintaining physical and mental health in later life. Age UK Somerset's Ageing Well service provides a wide range of exercise classes designed specifically for older people. These classes are a great way of staying healthy, while meeting new people and having fun. The aim is to help older people to make the most of later life.
We are looking for volunteers to teach our exercise classes. Volunteers are trained to lead gentle chair based exercise (Flexercise) classes, the emphasis on which is having fun and socialising, while taking part in light physical activity. These are run throughout the county. Teaching a class is a great way to meet new people and have fun, while improving the wellbeing of local older people through building health, independence and confidence. Having a sense of humor is the most important thing, as these classes are all about having fun.
