It was lovely to see all our first week’s residents come to our exercise class this morning! (Our second week’s residents, two couples, are settling nicely and still at the stage of arranging furniture and belongings).
What was really heartwarming was that one of the residents, who is blind, happily joined all the exercises having not done them at first, nor for a long time. He took to being guided through a movement and then would carry on himself enthusiastically, sometimes saying ‘And other!’.
He exercised from start to finish. Afterwards he had much more energy, going on to do all the activities on offer today, including conducting music to Andrea Bocelli in the afternoon!
