Tai Chi

Thursday 15th February 2018 - 11:00am-12:00pm

Last November, we introduced our residents to Tai Chi, a Chinese martial art practiced for both its defence training and health benefits. Our residents loved it so much that it is now a regular session and helps them to cultivate focus and calmness and has been a great way to relax and stay fit physically and mentally.

Memory Café with Alzheimer’s Support

Monday 19th February 2018 - 2:00–3:30pm

We will be hosting our bi-monthly Memory Café and will be welcoming Christine Kinder who will be playing the harp for us during the session. It’s our first Memory Café since the launch in December and is run in conjunction with Alzheimer’s Support especially for those living with Alzheimer’s so they can socialise with others living with the condition. It also provides an opportunity for their carers to do the same and chat to fellow care givers for support. Please come along to our informal and free event for good company and conversation.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01672 555200 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
