Caremark Thanet will be at the Ageless Thanet 50+ Festival on Sunday 3 September 2017. The event is being held at St George’s School in Broadstairs – CT10 2LH for those using a satnav. Admission is free and the event is open from 10.00-16.00.
Caremark Thanet is proud to be an age-friendly business and very pleased to be involved with the 50+ festival. We will be there to offer advice about our care services and advice about domiciliary care in general. However, there will be quite a bit more at the festival for you to see and do.
There will be the chance to take part in various taster sessions during the day. For example, how about giving Tai Chi a go. Believe it or not, Tai Chi developed as a martial art in China. Today, however, it is practised more for its health promoting posibilities. You’ve probably seen people practising Tai Chi and noticed their elegantly smooth movements. Tai Chi also helps develop deep breathing and relaxation. There is evidence to suggest that practitioners lower their stress levels, improve mobility, gain muscle strength and improve their posture.
If not Tai Chi, why not belly dancing, or woodwork, or pottery or boccia? Boccia…
“… is a game of strategy and accuracy that was originally designed to be played by people with cerebral palsy. Now, the sport includes athletes with impairments that affect motor skills.
Of course, no festival worthy of its name would be complete without somewhere to eat and drink. This year there will be a food court where hot and cold refreshments will be avaialable.
There will, of course, be much more than what has been described above. If you come along, drop by our stand and say hello. We’ll be delighted to see you.
