There is little doubt that keeping active is good for us; it helps us feel more energetic, happier, and stimulated and helps avoid loneliness and isolation.
Thatâ€™s why a rich and varied activities programme is such an important part of care home life, including at Care Southâ€™s Kenwith Castle near Bideford and Fremington Manor.
Care South is a leading not-for-profit provider of residential and home care across the south of England.
