THIS IS GERIATRIC ENTERTAINMENT WITH A GOAL: SNEAK IN SOME SAFE EXERCISE!
Proven successful in assisted living and dementia care environments, this program gets people moving from the safety of their chair. Wheelchairs and walkers are always welcome.
Lori's Movin and Groovin is an entertaining musical experience that is designed to improve one’s sense of well being through formulated body movements and singing.
Our audiences have so much fun, they don't even realize they are exercising! We strive to create an atmosphere of fellowship for all, encouraging group interaction with a positive "do what you can" attitude while implementing senior fitness concepts including balance, flexibility, and core stability. Our formulated movements help to maintain daily function for seniors.
Each song works a specific muscle group or joint function for a few minutes, allowing intervals of rest. Movements are simple, seated, and suitable for seniors at any fitness level.
Music affects the brain as an emotional experience: it is also a physical experience. Music and singing are our key tools in encouraging safe movement in assisted living and dementia environments.
We are certified movement specialists who are trained in long term care environments , liability insured, tested, and background checked. We add our own special touches to our programs. We are sensitive to restrictions and disabilities, and we all desire to serve.
