Staying active

It is widely understood that keeping active is not just good for your physical health, but your mental wellbeing too. For this reason physical fitness is just as important in the elderly. Not only that, but research suggests greater fitness levels in the elderly help with preventing falls and dementia.

At Blenheim house we encourage residents to partake in regular exercise classes, or even offer private classes if that is preferred. As well as the fantastic carer provided by out in-house teams, we have regular visits from the local GP, physiotherapists, chiropodists, dentists and opticians. We ensure all residents have access to the specialist care they need, from the comfort of our home.
