What is it?
We offer ten-week courses of The Movement. Each week we provide a circuit of exercises to help boost your fitness, flexibility and well-being. The aim of each course is to help encourage and teach you why exercise is important and how to exercise safely at home. All the exercises can be adapted to suit your individual needs.
Who can come?
If you have been diagnosed with cancer or another life-limiting illness, live within Rennie Grove’s catchment area and feel you would benefit from exercise, you can be assessed by the physiotherapist to see if the group would suit your needs.
How do I get referred?
If you are already known to Rennie Grove, a staff member can refer you.
If you are new to Rennie Grove, you can request a referral to Grove House Day Services from any healthcare professional involved in your care, including your GP. Referral guidance for healthcare professionals can be found on our website here.
Alternatively you can self refer by phoning 10727 731013, emailing email@example.com, or calling in to one of our Drop-in Sessions, which run Tuesday to Friday 9am-4pm, when our nurses will be able to advise you and assess you for this service. When self referring it is helpful if you provide the name of your GP and your preferred contact method.
What will happen when I get there?
In addition to the guided exercise circuit, refreshments are provided and you will have an opportunity to chat with the other participants. A physiotherapist or therapy assistant are available to address any concerns, or to signpost you.
When and where is The Movement Course held?
The course is currently being held virtually as well as a face-to-face group from Grove House.
