Spalding care home hosts Olympic-themed fun





Residents and staff at Fenchurch House Care Home in Spalding Common enjoyed their very own Olympic Games with a range of sport-themed activities.

Named the ‘Country Court Oomph-Olympics’ (through a combination of the two companies running the event), residents tried their hands at Boccia, bop-fit, artistic swimming and other events.

Fenchurch House hosted an opening ceremony with afternoon tea, complete with passing of an Olympic torch.

The home was decorated with flags and a banner made by the residents.

Activity coordinators from Country Court, the operator behind Fenchurch House, have been receiving training from partner activity provider Oomph Wellness to help run the events. Each home across the country will be leading residents in Boccia, bop-fit, artistic swimming and an open event of their choice.

Fenchurch House got their games under way with an afternoon of balloon volleyball, complete with a singalong to get everyone feeling motivated.

Country Court says the Oomph-Olympics are just one of the many activity initiatives provided for residents.

“Providing stimulating activities in care homes is one of the most crucial elements of maintaining health, happy residents,” said a spokesman.

“By enabling residents to participate in meaningful opportunities, their physical, emotional, social, cognitive and sensory skills are strengthened.”
