At the Vicarage Court Care, we run many weekly classes for the residents. These include dance, tai chi, gardening, memory books and “Sing yourself happy”. Families as well as residents can participate in these classes.
These operate across the units, so that those on the Forget Me Not unit , plus the residential and nursing can join in.
Below is a scene from a recent dance class.
