COVID recovery programme
Supporting the health and wellbeing of our residents.
We are all adapting to living with COVID, but some of our residents have been impacted more than others by the pandemic. Whether through long COVID or the mental health impact of COVID and successive lockdowns, there are those in our community who can’t as easily get on with daily life.
Working with our partners at Places Leisure, (they manage the Xcel Leisure Complex, Sports Hub and Hurst Pool on our behalf), a COVID recovery programme has been designed to provide therapy and rehabilitation specifically for individuals who have endured COVID-19 or who have been affected by long COVID.
Dave Jones, Business Development Manager, at Places Leisure, explains what is involved in the programme:
“More than two million people in the UK are struggling with the effects of COVID-19. For many, their experience is transformative and, far more profound than an acute cough, fever, and period of isolation. The COVID recovery programme introduced in 2021, provides regular 1-to-1 sessions with a certified COVID recovery coach, as well as personalised exercise programme including lifestyle and dietary advice.”
The health and wellbeing of our residents is vital for a thriving Elmbridge, which is why we are working with partners around the borough to enable more accessible pathways to physical and mental health.
