There are few exercise activities that can viably be done in groups during Covid. However, hosting a spaced out drum exercise class is one of the few!
Have residents sit on their own chair in an open space, socially distanced with masks of course, and set them up with a makeshift drum set. Green Country Village Senior Living used green yoga balls cradled in circular clothes hampers as the drums with drum sticks. You can also use any other wooden stick. Next, they played invigorating music in the room and directed the drumming from the front so that residents could play along and make their own music! Who knew drumming could be good exercise.
