Elphin Lodge residents get moving!

Rand Aid’s Elphin Lodge retirement village residents are happy to get moving again now that coronavirus restrictions have been eased.

Nan Clark (pictured on the right) is Elphin Lodge’s Mrs Active! Her outdoor exercise group meets two days a week, and she’s also just resumed the SAFSA dance exercise group at the Woodlands’ lapa, which is a basic dance routine choreographed to music.

“As muscles and joints weaken and range of movement deteriorates as we age, stretching benefits include the development and maintenance of strength, improving flexibility and increased circulation and blood flow, all of which provide a greater quality of life and healthy aging,” says Elphin Lodge manager Helen Petrie.
