Well-Being and Our Activities

Physical exercise and mental stimulation can help us to stay healthy, energetic and independent as we get older
The over 65 age group on average spends up to 10 hours a day sitting or lying down. Research studies show this sedentary lifestyle can lead to higher falls, obesity and heart disease.

Being more active
In order to promote independence we encourage and support residents to stay active through doing the activities they enjoy such as exercise, gardening, baking or playing games.

The evidence
Norbury Hall has been selected for many research programmes throughout the years. From our research and that of nationwide research there is much scientific evidence to support the ethos of those who are active have a lower risk if heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression and dementia. In an effort to remain more independent and happy we provide many activities to our residents. It’s that simple. There are many ways of staying active, it is not just about exercise.

Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being is promoted through a wide range of activities and events. Weekly activities include Bingo, Aerobics and gardening sessions. We regularly have Theatre productions, Music Shows and Film afternoons.

We also offer some Outings such as shopping trips and community tea parties as well as hosting summer BBQ’s, themed days and seasonal celebrations which are always very popular with our residents, friends and families alike.

We always strive to keep the elderly involved in their wider community, we work closely with local Schools, Charities, Brownies and Scouts to bridge the gap between the youth and elderly of today’s society.
