Shafik Sachedina, a chairman for Sussex Healthcare recently announced with his chairman partner Shariz Boghani that a new state of the art gym for the elderly and disabled was built. It is located in West Sussex which is close to Horsham. This where one of the 20 facilities is located that is part of healthcare network.
Shafik Sachedina brings his healthcare expertise to the table when it came to creating the largest facility for the elderly and disabled. His experience in dentistry allowed him to have a knowledge of how patients should be treated when seeking healthcare while his co-partner brought his hotel expertise on how to house them. So it is no surprise that the dynamic duo was able to build this gym by putting their heads together once again. This gym comes with free weights, underwater treadmills, stationary bicycles, and new elliptical machines. There is other equipment that comes in this gym as well. If there are elderly and disabled people who are at home receiving care, they are welcome to use this facility as well.
The whole purpose of this new gym is to get people moving and improve the health. It also helps them to be social. They can interact with each other and staff which helps engage their minds. Having an active elderly patient that suffers from dementia or Alzheimer’s can slow the disease down so that they can continue to retain some of their memory. Shafik Sachedina also hired experts in certain fields that include, respiratory, neurological, and musculoskeletal therapy. Each resident has an exercise plan that is geared towards helping them with their movements. With the gym always staffed, anytime any of the residents want to exercise, they are welcomed to do so.
Another plus is that Shafik Sachedina thought of in the new gym was the hydrotherapy. This is for the patients who want to relax their sore muscles in the hot tub after exercising. Sussex Healthcare takes pride in helping people who need reliable care in the area of improving their mobility and having this gym is the best idea.
