This Valentine’s Day we decided to ask a number of our residents across our ExtraCare locations to let us in on some love and romance tips.
This Valentine’s Day we decided to ask a number of our residents across our ExtraCare locations to let us in on some tips regarding romance.
Ron and Joyce Bond residents at Shenley Wood Village recently discovered they are the longest married couple in Britain.
With a love still burning stronger than ever at 103 and 100 respectively they give us the following advice:
What advice would you give young married couples?
The Bonds: Always pull together, in good times and bad.
What is your favourite thing about one another?
The Bonds: That we look after each other.
How do you keep love alive?
The Bonds: Spend time doing things together that you both enjoy.
Check out the video below where a number of our residents joined The Bonds and offered their own pearls of wisdom on a day recognising romance and love around the world.
Making the most of community and connections in retirement
Our Engaged Lives project is a drive to build stronger communities and connections for ExtraCare residents.
Nutrition & Hydration Week: Nutritional needs for older adults
In honour of Nutrition and Hydration week, we thought there was no better team than our fantastic group of Wellbeing Advisors to take the lead on this one. ExtraCare's award-winning Wellbeing Service is provided by on-site registered general nurses, supporting and empowering all residents to be proactive in managing their own health and to make informed decisions about their lifestyle. In this guest blog post, Sheila and Kate cover all things diet and nutrition for those in their later years.
