"Wow Wednesday" starts a year of music and movement
Once the excitement of the festive season is over, traditionally January is seen as a bit of a quiet month, but that is not the case at Avonbourne Care Centre.
As part of the OSJCT’s campaign to Beat the January Blues, each Wednesday throughout 2020 there will be live musical entertainment for our residents to enjoy. Starting with the ever-popular Ukulele Piddle, and continuing with Brian Slade, Donna Chalcraft and Dave Dawson, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Singing along to familiar tunes whilst moving to the music is great therapy for our residents by offering a little bit of reminiscence, some light exercise and putting a smile on their faces. The seats closest to the entertainer are often quite hotly contested!
There are many more activities planned during January and throughout 2020, involving residents, relatives and the local community, so come along and get involved.
