Nowadays, people live independently for longer and stay fit and vital for longer and longer. More and more exercise initiatives and facilities are being used to keep these vital elderly people healthy and moving. This ever-growing group of seniors, lives mainly in adjoining homes, service and care apartments or a care institution with a relatively low self-employed person (care-heavy package) or care needs. For this we set up the outdoor space with a view to being and remaining vital.
For this group of vital elderly people we develop and realize exercise gardens where a warm, welcome feeling and (light) sporting effort prevail. Where you can move, recreate and maintain social contacts with fellow residents, family and caregivers in an accessible way. Extra emphasis is placed on staying vital, meeting each other and preventing reconciliation.
For example, when setting up exercise gardens for vital elderly people, think of (therapeutic) hiking trails with mood and walking lighting, sports facilities for, for example, pétanque, exercise equipment, (midget) golf greens, bicycle parking locations with charging point for e-bikes and sports equipment. With matching exercise devices and ergonomic seating furniture tailored to seniors. Of course, the greenhouses and flower boxes at height can also not be missed, so that you can also garden yourself. Suggestions for supporting exercise devices for this design concept can be found in our product range of senior fitness.
In addition to this design concept for exercise gardens for vital elderly people, we have even more design concepts specifically for care & well-being:
- Down Memory Lane, experience gardens for dementia care
- Exploring Senses, stimulates the senses of visually and auditoryly limited
- Playing Together, outdoor spaces for people with physical and/or intellectual disabilities
