Poi in Aged Care

Poi in Aged Care: it's never too late to play!

Poi, a ball on a cord spun in circular patterns around the body, is a fun, affordable, accessible way to keep the body and mind fit as we age. Scientific research on poi and older adults showed significant improvements in grip strength, balance, and attention after playing poi for just one month! Check out our guides for comprehensive resources around starting your own poi program in aged care

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.

Our residents are loving our SpinPoi sessions. We do get a good laugh along the way and feedback from residents is very positive. What I have noticed particularly is how they follow instructions (something that they usually have difficulties with - and the concentration!!!). I even have one resident telling others how good it is and recruiting new members.

Elaine, Activities Coordinator, Southlands Residential Home Limited

Residents are excited to attend the sessions, they really enjoy doing poi and find it to be a fun exercise. During the sessions residents have progressed well in coordination and after feel quite good in themselves.
