Its wonderful to see our Residents enjoying some outdoor activities in their local areas
We love to see older people staying active and engaged in activities.
Here, some of our residents have enjoyed some time with a stroll along the beach, watching the football and enjoying a pint with carers near Madeira Lodge care home, in New Romney and even getting haircuts at the local barbers near our Edendale Lodge care home in Crowhurst.
Engaging in social and recreational activities can have numerous benefits for older people, both physically and mentally. It can provide opportunities for residents to socialise and interact with others. Maintaining social connections is crucial for mental well-being and can help prevent feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Visiting different places and engaging in conversations can provide mental stimulation. It challenges the brain, promotes cognitive function, and may contribute to a lower risk of cognitive decline.
I think it's safe to say, our residents look to be having a grand old time and look very happy to be out and about!
