Inspiration session for teachers 'seniors on the move'
On the basis of the Sports Agreement, Participe and AmstelveenSport are organizing several inspiration sessions for teachers who give exercise lessons to the elderly.
We deal with 4 themes; dementia and exercise, fall prevention, cognitive fitness and versatile exercise.
On Saturday 18 September, the theme 'dementia and exercise' will be discussed. The program will follow, but you can already register!
The session is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. including lunch.
Entry is from 9.45am. The practical part will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., in which Mieke Regelink from AmstelveenSport takes you through the questions of 'how do I recognize dementia?' 'how do I ensure that the participant can continue to participate in the group?' and 'what exercise exercises can I offer?'
Elderly advisor Natasja Groeneveld from Participe Amstelland and activity counselor Tessa Storm from Zonnehuis Bovenkerk are also present. Natasja will talk about how Participe Amstelland can play a role if you are concerned about a participant and Tessa will talk about her experiences and the exercise program within Zonnehuis Bovenkerk.
Lunch and the opportunity to talk to each other and share knowledge will be served from 12.00-13.00.
