brighterkind’s Henleigh Hall Care Home in Beauchief recently put on their dancing shoes and enjoyed a traditional tea dance at the Jesus Centre in Sheffield.
Residents were able to step back in time to celebrate old times when the dance halls were filled with moving feet at afternoon tea dances. They were a popular way for young people to socialise whilst dancing the tango, waltz and foxtrot.
This occasion was particularly special for resident June, who used to be a dancer, so it brought back many fond memories. Resident Eric also showed off his best dance moves.
Live music was provided by singer Heather, and all could sit back to enjoy a lovely afternoon cream tea when their dancing feet could dance no more!
Jeannette, Magic Moments Club Co-ordinator, said “everybody had a great time singing and dancing and sharing time with residents from other homes around the city!”
At Henleigh Hall Care Home we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.
Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents. The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
