Residents at Weymouth Care took part in a lively Zumba class this month to help improve their fitness and wellbeing. Everyone in the home was encouraged to get involved, enjoy the upbeat music and appropriate exercises, which included moving beautifully coloured ribbons around in their chairs.
Paula Hartley, from Weymouth Care Home said, ‘Our residents enjoyed ‘Chair Zumba’ which is a more realistic version for older people. It’s still energetic and lots of fun so it creates lots of laughter which can
be a health tonic in itself. Any kind of fitness is a good thing and they all had a great time’.
Weymouth Care Home currently has 30 residents and is part of Altogether Care, a Dorset and Somerset care provider.
