With over 17 years of anecdotal stories of the benefits of our programmes from our partner nursing homes, Siel Bleu conducted the HAPPIER study in 2013, which is the first of its kind to examine the efficacy of our type of tailored exercise programmes on the residents, staff and overall nursing home organisations.
Funded by the European Commission and supported by the French Ministry of Health, HAPPIER took place in 32 nursing homes across the four Siel Bleu countries with 450 residents of varying degrees of dependency, mobility and cognition.
The HAPPIER Study was carried out to
scientifically prove 17 years worth of observed
and anecdotal evidence from the ground.
Aim to prove the positive, preventative
impact of physical activity for older people
& long term care homes.
