As part of constantly looking at best practice, Vicarage Court Care home will be having a Mediotech Thera Trainer. It is an adapted exercise bike for building up confidence and leg muscles. The aim is to prevent falls, encourage independence in a fun atmosphere.
Residents on the residential, nursing and dementia unit will get access to the machine and it will be their choice how often they wish to utilise the machine, with assistance with carers.
