Residents at Sherborne House care home in Yeovil are enjoying participating in friendly games of Boccia.
The game has a similar principle to boules with the aim of throwing coloured leather balls as close as possible to a white target ball, called a Jack. The game made its Paralympic debut in 1984 and is now practiced in over fifty countries worldwide. Boccia can be played by individuals, pairs or teams.
Sherborne House currently has 27 residents and is located in Sherborne, Yeovil.
Caroline Sharp, Manager at Sherborne House said, ‘Our residents enjoy a wide range of activities and Boccia is very popular and requires a great deal of concentration and patience. It also creates lots of laughter’.
Sherborne House is part of Altogether Care, a Dorset based family owned care provider offering a wide range of care services including dementia care, residential, respite, care at home and nursing care.
