We are busy building a team of Bendie Practitioners, ready to go into care homes and help older people to remain mobile for as long as possible.

We know that this sort of work is demanding and can be quite sad sometimes.  So we support each other; we share success and we share memories when one of our ‘regulars’ isn’t well enough to exercise.

I got such a lovely text today, full of love and feeling.  Janet wanted to tell me about one of the ladies in her class.  A lady had told her how much better she was feeling, how much more confident she was since she had started coming to the exercise class.

That sort of feedback makes our day.  Then Jane told me about her silent disco and the profound impact on some of the residents who are more affected by dementia.

Together we make a difference to people’s lives – that has to be one of the best jobs going!

If you would like to know more about our work do contact us.  We could make a difference to someone close to you.
