A sociable and fun February for residents
As well as providing a full spectrum of five-star amenities for residents, all award-winning LifeCare Residences communities provide ample opportunity for residents to meet like-minded people and even get involved in a range of activities and clubs on offer – be it board games, craft, ukulele, cards, falconry, archery, bridge, or music – and the Valentine’s month of February proves no exception! The teams at Battersea Place in London, Somerleigh Court in Dorchester, Dorset, and Grove Place near Romsey, are dedicated to helping facilitate a wide array of clubs, activities, and classes to get involved in, as well as helping to arrange interesting trips and visits. The LifeCare Residences communities share the view that Valentine’s Day represents many kinds of love between all kinds of people and have arranged some fabulous opportunities to get together and brighten up February. At Battersea Place in London, the team has organised a series of events and outings – including an outing to see the Durer exhibition at the National Gallery and a Theatre Supper Club and a trip to the London Children’s Ballet. On Valentine’s Day itself, residents will be able to enjoy a transmission from the Roya Opera House of one of the world’s most beautiful and romantic ballet’s, Romeo and Juliet. At Grove Place in Hampshire, the residents have plenty of opportunities to get together during several fun social events, whether it’s being entertained by singer Philippa Healey, or taking part in a Quiz Night that has been laid on by the team, or what could be more fun to enjoy with friends than a Bingo Night, or perhaps a gentler evening of listening to music by harpist Marni Lai. Peggy Bigglestone, who retired to Grove Place in Hampshire concurs, “I feel utterly spoilt here. There is a range of activities you can try out; I am part of the choir and a ukulele club, and I go out on lots of day trips; some of my friends use the pool or the gym. There is always something interesting happening that you are welcome to join in with.”
Friendship and companionship enrich and improve people’s lives. It can increase your sense of belonging and purpose, boost your happiness and reduce stress. Hence, the power and love of friendship deserves to be celebrated with the same fervour as ‘romantic love’ in recognition of these countless benefits. Keeping love alive and flowing in friendships is essential to being happy – and what better day to accomplish this than Valentine’s Day?
