Avery Mews, BrighterKind
BrighterKind care home ‘Avery Mews’ was one of 12 homes chosen to pilot the 12-week research project and with such positive feedback from the residents, the equipment was purchased, and they have continued sessions every Monday as part of their weekly activity program.
Doreen is 94 years old and a resident at Avery Mews. Doreen is a wheelchair user and a regular participant in Just Bowl.
Beryl is 79 years old and uses a walking stick when mobilising. Beryl is a regular, dedicated player of Just Bowl.
For anyone, anywhere, any time!
“Residents started by using walking sticks, frames, and trolleys but as time has progressed, they now get up out of their chairs, using their mobility aids.
Once on the mat, the aids get tossed to one side and away they go. Seeing the transformation in their mobility has been fantastic.
Their confidence has grown immensely, and it’s been a fantastic opportunity to be a part of the process. The sessions will continue to be run weekly in our home.
I wouldn’t dare remove Just Bowl from the planner!“
