Residents at Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine enjoyed a morning of fun exercise and healthy treats at the opening of their new community ‘Four Seasons Feel Good Club’.

The new club aims to bring residents, carers, family members and people living in the local community the opportunity to get together for a series of fun, feel-good activities throughout the year.

Residents enjoyed an exercise session and played balloon volleyball and football, all from the comfort of their armchairs.

After the games, the care home’s chef whizzed up a range of pudding-inspired smoothies including carrot cake, key lime pie, strawberry shortcake and apple pie with residents taking part in a taste test, trying to guess the flavours.

Resident John Welsh said: " “What a brilliant day. I loved all the games!”

The care home’s Magic Moments Assistant, Daisy Dewar, added: “Our new Four Seasons Feel Good Club is proving to be a real hit with our residents and includes a wide range of activities to benefit the mind, body and soul.

"The club is open to everyone, so it’s a great way to keep our residents connected to their local community. We hope people living locally will come along and join us for future sessions – it’s free, fun and a great way to meet new people.

“We’ll be hosting activities every month, with something for everyone, whatever their interests and abilities. From exercise classes to laughter yoga, adapted sports and games to singing classes and social get-togethers for a cuppa and chat and reminiscence sessions.”

Cumbrae Lodge Care Home is located in Castlepark Road, Irvine and provides nursing, dementia and palliative care.
