Free event to help older people in Stowmarket lead healthy and active lives

June 30th 2015

A free event to help people in their older years find new ways of leading an active, healthy and independent life will be taking place on Wednesday 1st July, at the Cedrus Club.

The Health and Wellbeing event will include a variety of free sessions, including Otago exercises for healthy ageing with Age UK, reflexology and Reiki therapy, aromatherapy and professional advice from some of Suffolk’s health and wellbeing experts. The day will run from 10am to 3pm and includes refreshments throughout the day. Older people living in their own homes locally, as well as relatives and family carers, are invited to pop in at any time or stay for the whole event.

Susan Gibson, manager at the Cedrus Club, said: “The Health and Wellbeing event on 1st July is set to be an interesting day with a range of interactive activities. We look forward to welcoming the local community into the Club for what will be our first community event.”

Susan continues: “As manager at the Cedrus Club, I really enjoy getting to know the club members individually so that I can tailor the service to their and their family’s needs. I learn people’s likes and dislikes and favourite hobbies, and then develop these into exciting activities, opportunities and events for the whole Club and the wider community to enjoy.”

The Cedrus Club offers flexible day care services to help older people in the community to maintain their independence for longer. The Health and Wellbeing event will also provide an opportunity to take a tour of the new Cedrus House care home, as well as meet the care team.  

Everything about our Stowmarket care home is designed to support the health, comfort and wellbeing of residents. As well as providing a wide range of high quality care services, each of the home’s 70 bedrooms has en-suite facilities and we even have downstairs rooms that open on to our lovely secure gardens.

Members of the Cedrus Club day care centre love celebrating annual events in style. Members made their favourite sandwiches to take home for National Sandwich Week and crafted a flower mural during the week of Chelsea Flower Show. And when they’re not getting their hands dirty in the garden they’re hosting their own events.
