Just Bowl is currently working in partnership with Brighterkind, various cancer support groups and Sheffield Hallam University to determine the impact that our programme is having on the elderly and cancer rehabilitation patients. We are also working with other partners, such as Guinness Care, and would welcome any interest in Just Bowl.
Brighterkind – brighterkind has 70 care homes geographically spread between Inverness to Jersey. A total of 3,780 registered beds and over 4000 team members offer a mixture of nursing, residential, dementia and palliative care to mainly frail and elderly residents.
The brighterkind concept is focused on offering a real home with real people that care. We underpin the brighterkind experience with three signature elements: Extraordinary care; Recreation and activity; Food and dining.
Guinness Care – We are a countrywide not-for-profit organisation providing both housing and care services.
Our homes for older people are perfect if you’re looking for a retirement home with the reassurance of on-site support if you need it. Our extra care homes are purpose-built apartments designed to give you a little extra support. Our Care at Home services help you to live in your own home and stay independent. We want to deliver care services that make a difference to people. You should be able to live in the home of your choice, leading a happy and safe life.
Cancer Support Groups – Just Bowl is currently being delivered in several cancer support groups such as the Stepping Out in Bridport. Stepping Out is an exercise and wellbeing programme designed specifically for people living with or beyond cancer. The scheme takes place at Bridport Leisure Centre. Specially-trained Level 4 cancer rehabilitation instructors provide advice and expertise for anyone wanting to make a healthier lifestyle part of their recovery.
Over the 12-week programme, you can take part in two group exercise sessions a week. These include a number of taster classes, designed to introduce you to activities you may not have tried before, like yoga or walking football. Sessions also include advice and support on issues such as nutrition, coping with fatigue, mindfulness, complementary therapies and the lymphatic system. There’s also time to relax, share your experience and make new friends.
Sheffield Hallam University – The Centre for Sport and Exercise Science (CSES), which began operations in 2000, is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research and consultancy in the areas of physical activity for health, sport performance, and wellness. The centre is led by Professor Simon Shibli, Professor of Sport Management, and acting head of centre.
The centre currently comprises 24 research staff and 20 PhD students, and includes experts from the main sport and exercise science/medicine disciplines: physiology, biomechanics, psychology, nutrition, physiotherapy, and strength and conditioning. This provides the potential for an interdisciplinary approach for addressing sport, exercise and health issues.
