From Larbert …to Lapland!
Learning Disability inpatients from our Lochview facility in Larbert recently completed a virtual walk to Lapland in December, intended to promote health and exercise amongst the learning disability client group.
They were joined by staff from physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and psychiatry, along with nurses, Allied Health Professional staff and friends.
Each participant wore a pedometer provided by Health Promotion to count the number of steps they took each week in the run up to Christmas.
There are approximately 2,000 steps in a mile, and as a whole the team took 2,529,028 steps, which wasthe equivalent of 1264 miles – the same distance they would have covered walking from Larbert to Lapland – just in time for Christmas.
This was a huge achievement for our determined Lochview patients and staff are extremely proud of their hard work – well done!
