Jed from the Ayr Archery Club has started up a pilot beginners’ class for care homes to deliver weekly archery sessions for free.
Jed is hoping to grow this club to allow other care homes in the community to connect with one another through small tournaments. We will be welcoming Jed every Monday afternoon into our home where residents can have a go at practicing their archery skills.
Diane from our activities team contacted Ayr Academy to build links with the archery club as a new activity to bring to our residents living at Templeton House.
Partaking in archery is a great activity for our residents as it can improve hand-eye coordination and balance, which can be beneficial for those with mobility or dexterity issues. It is also a fun and engaging activity that can provide a sense of accomplishment and boost confidence.
Archery is also a great form of exercise, as it requires strength and focus to shoot the arrow accurately. It enables residents to socialise and interact with one another for a bit of friendly competition. It also provides a calming and meditative experience, promoting relaxation and stress relief.
We look forward to seeing how our residents' progress week after week as many are keen to improve their aim.
To learn more about what our residents at Templeton House get up to or to book a home visit, the team will be delighted to assist you. Call 01292 291 232 or email email@example.com to speak to a member of staff.
