Staying active and alert
The free workshops will be held between 11am and 12.30pm each Tuesday and Thursday at the Centro Social Platja Albir and at the same time on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Hogar del Pensionista in Alfaz.
Activities range from memory and coordination exercises to dancing, art, games, movement and sport.
As well as opportunities for exercise, brain-training and advice on diet and nutrition, Health and Social Welfare councillor Marisa Cortes explained that there were other advantages to attending the workshops.
“Socialising involves many things,” Cortes said. “Going out, talking to other people, listening to what they say and giving an opinion all helps to keep minds active and alert.”
There is a team of occupational therapists, physiotherapists and psychologists on hand with changes made in activities every fortnight to avoid monotony and offer new stimuli.
Activities continue until next June are totally free for all residents who are registered on the municipal.
