Residents of Cheviot Court care home in South Shields love being busy. Some grow herbs and tomatoes in the garden while others bake cakes. And there’s a big emphasis on trying something new, from ten pin bowling to tai chi and trips to the theatre. Everyone looks forward to the regular karaoke nights when family and friends come along for a sing.
