What People Are Saying
Poi could potentially be one of the most affordable, simple and effective interventions globally to alleviate the growing amount of depression, loneliness and isolation in older adults. We have seen our older residents smile or laugh out loud, socialize and develop new friendships, and engage both their minds and their bodies despite their age and physical or cognitive abilities.Orquidea Tamayo Mortera, Registered Diversional Therapist, President of the New Zealand Society of Diversional and Recreational Therapists
Practicing poi helps keep the brain alive. It’s stimulating. It’s fun. It requires complex actions that keep the body and mind engaged. Poi just might help delay the onset of diseases that strike in old age like dementia. If you could delay Alzheimer’s onset by just five years, you could reduce its prevalence by 50 percent.Sir Richard Faull

Our residents are loving our SpinPoi sessions. The improvements seen are incredible. I have witnessed residents with minimum concentration skills be really focused. Residents who find it difficult to follow instructions, follow rhythms and timings. This is a great social activity too, as it gives the residents the opportunity to chat with other residents they do not normally have contact with throughout the day. And they find it fun!Elaine Ablett, Activities Coordinator, Southlands Residential Home Limited
