Residents from retirement living schemes are to be offered free exercise and well-being sessions to improve their health in a scheme funded by Rochford Housing.

Active Life sessions will not only help residents take part in sociable group activities, they will also offer them advice in maintaining their health.

The healthy lifestyle courses are set to take place in retirement living schemes across Rochford district where residents will take part in a range of gentle seated and resistance exercises that are designed to improve their strength. They will also be educated in important information on nutrition and how to reduce stress.

Chris Silvey, Rochford Housing’s resident involvement officer, said: “We want our residents to enjoy healthy, happy lives, particularly as they get older, and through these sessions, we can offer them the support and advice they need to do that.”
