Castleisland Day Care wishes to invite people of a certain vintage, their carers, families and friends to an afternoon of games, activities and a cup of tea in St John Hall, Presentation Convent on Thursday May 25th from 2pm to 4pm.

“This is a lovely opportunity to meet new people and have some fun,” according to the invitation.

“We hope to introduce ‘Activator Poles’ which are designed to help with balance and mobility and hopefully give people an opportunity to try them for themselves,” the invitation continued.

Purpose of Activator Poles

Activator Poles were designed by therapists and are particularly suitable for people with balance concerns or mobility issues.

Features of these poles include: bell-shaped tips; ergonomic strapless handles; anti-vibration features and secure button locking system.

​Use of these poles improves stability, reduces impact on hips and knees, develops core strength, improves posture and promotes a better gait pattern. The poles may be suitable for post/hip knee surgery, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Osteoarthritis and helps in preventing falls.
