Free online/DVD- Exercise classes for older people.

Dear all,

I hope all are well and safe.

Just to introduce myself. I am a respiratory physio with over 19 years of experience, specialty in pulmonary rehab (Dublin, Ireland) and oxygen therapy (Lancashire, Uk).  Currently I am a cardio-respiratory lecturer in Cardiff university.

I have something to share for our primary care network in support to keep our patient groups fit and healthy. From my previous networks in Dublin, I am aware of good works of  Sielblue Ireland, a physical activity initiative group.

In this challenging fluids times of COVID 19, Sielblue Ireland now producing live community exercise sessions in you tube and facebook everyday for older populations with chronic disease. For those older people who don't have online access they have produced DVD and is available FREE. If you know of anyone like this just email their address to gfl@ageandopportunity.ie or Paul.kirwan@sielbleu.ie and they'll get one out to them.

  • Hi Shakila

    This is great , thank you . We used to have a weekly exercise class at our GP surgery so the patients are really missing it & most do not access online stuff so I will mention the DVD to them.
