St Columbas – CAPA – Care About Physical Activity

St Columba’s have recently committed to the Care Inspectorate initiative- CAPA( Care about physical activity) and have implemented this in the home. The aim is to improve residents physical and mental well-being through promoting independence and enabling them to increase their level of physical activity. The residents have been taking small steps towards a healthier, fitter lifestyle by being able to make their own tea, setting tables, washing, doing dishes, dusting and  swimming, participating in gentle  exercise classes and walking. Residents are enjoying being more involved  and are participating in more day to day tasks to keep them active too.
