Each semester Carrington Court is privileged to have the University of Utah students come and work with our residents. The students are Exercise Sports Science Majors. As a cap stone to their degree’s they are required to take class entitled Promoting Health in the Community. As a part of our daily activities Carrington Court has ‘Let’s Move’ exercises each morning. During ‘Let’s Move’ the residents participate in seated and standing exercises that help keep their bodies active. The students get the opportunity to come and organize and direct the exercises with our residents and the other morning activities. This semester we have four gentleman named Matt, Ian, Chris and Skyler who come every Saturday morning. They bring so much excitement and fun to our environment. The residents love spending time with them. In the pictures below you will see an activity created by the students. They gathered different props and had ‘Mini Olympics’. Such as, basketball, the javelin throw and curling. Our residents loved the idea and thoroughly enjoyed playing.
Carrington Court has had the opportunity to have a different group of students come each semester (fall, spring and summer) for several semesters now and we look forward to continuing our relationship with the University and bringing new faces and ideas to our facility.
