Wishaw care home celebrates victory thanks to new football activity

By Ross Thomson

Residents at Beechwood Care Home in Wishaw are celebrating victory, after Fit-Baw instructors, Paul Mooney and Seamus Duggan, awarded them the Fit-Baw 90 accolade for their hard work throughout a 12-week fitness programme.

Residents practice Fit-Baw, a gentler form of football, as part of the home’s activities programme, designed to keep them healthy and happy as they socialise and exercise together.

Working with their instructors, the Fit-Baw 90 programme saw them set targets to improve their strength, balance, and coordination together.

Activities coordinator, Helen Miller teamed up with Paul and Seamus to run weekly sessions, where residents took part in arm and leg exercises using a football.

Fit-Baw 90 ended with squad captain, Harry Gilmour, accepting the trophy on behalf of his team, as staff members and residents alike applauded their shared victory.

Helen told Lanarkshire Live : “We work hard to plan new and fun activities for our residents because there’s nothing better than watching them enjoy a bit of banter and gentle exercise.

"We’ve plenty of laughter to go around while enjoying the beautiful game.”

Paul added: “The squad was always prepared and ready to work hard to achieve their goals.

"We were delighted to award them the Fit-Baw 90 trophy, a well-deserved win as the first ever care home to join our Hall of Fame and for all the progress they’ve made!

“We look forward to setting and beating new targets with them.”
