'Fit for Fun'
with Simon Grodentz
"During the support sessions I am regularly invited along to provide a 'fun and fitness' session for the group. With as much emphasis on the fun as the fitness!
We do activities to help restore mobility, strength and balance to the group as well as games that can help improve co-ordination or even thinking skills following strokes.
Often our exercise class can involve Balloon Tennis one minute then Tai-Chi the next.
I have been seeing the group for over 18 months now and many members have improved so dramatically that the support sessions have really changed their lives for the better. From what I have seen; having other individuals around who are learning to cope with Aphasia and with the fantastic support provided by the AphasiaNow team, Aphasia becomes less of a condition to push people away, instead it is something which pulls this great group of people together.
Thank you for letting me be part of it all and I am looking forward to many more fun times!"
