Staff and residents at Barchester’s Hugh Myddelton House care home in Southgate have been marking World Health Day by taking part in a range of different activities to promote good health.
World Health Day took place on Wednesday 7th April. The idea behind the day is to shine a light on the benefits of good health and wellbeing around the whole world. Each year, World Health Day has a different focus – the theme for 2021 is building a fairer, healthier world for everyone.
The staff and residents got into the spirit of the day by taking part in different activities to promote good health.
Residents enjoyed a masterclass in preparing delicious fruit smoothies. We enjoyed walking in the sunshine in our beautiful garden and had lots of fun dancing at an Armchair Disco.
General Manager, Ramona Stanciu said: “Our residents had a brilliant time today, they really enjoyed the armchair disco session and our chef made some of the dishes from the healthy eating masterclass for lunch so everyone got to sample them. This afternoon we made delivered hampers filled with treats to our local GP surgery for all the staff, our residents really enjoyed putting those together to say thank you to all our wonderful doctors, nurses and support staff who have been working so hard over the last year.”
