computer lessons!

Val came today to carry on the good work, teaching the residents how to access google on the home computer - they had a look at google street view today, then looked up various of their favourite artists to see their work etc.

Laughter is the best Medicine!!

we introduced 'laughter yoga' classes today to the unsuspecting residents at MEH. pictured here is Marie, teacher Cathy and a bemused Robert! He was not quite sure what to make of it all.

Laughter Yoga 'massage's the internal organs - its movement, excercise and laughter all in one; the endorphins produced when we laugh make us all feel stronger, happier and more alert.

Just laugh for no reason (or smile) - it will instantly make you feel better!

Helen C and Helen D certainly enjoyed the class, as did doreen, grace,ursula, jean, pat, win, susan, phyll, patti and helen p. It was a lovely way to start the week.
