Now Phyllis takes part in a weekly exercise class run in her residential home by our Siel Bleu Physical Trainer, Craig. While Phyllis is probably one of the fittest 93 year old ladies you will see, she has had numerous issues with arthritis in her shoulders and was unable to lift her hands above her head. Thanks to the exercise class, and the adaption of the programme, Phyllis can now raise her hands over her head. She says the programme has helped her to retain her every day abilities, “I can keep moving!”
