Catching Rays of Golden Sunshine at Magna Care Centre

At Magna Care Centre in Wimborne, we have been very fortunate to have had a beautiful summer so far this year with glorious sunshine and bright, balmy days.

Summer is the season for outdoor fun, BBQ’s and relaxation and with this in mind we have enhanced our courtyard area with the installation of some new sails and parasols, so our residents and guests can enjoy the sunshine in comfort. They are a great addition as we can entertain outside and enjoy more’ al fresco living’ as they provide much needed shade for large groups of people wanting to enjoy the outdoors.

Recently, 17 of our residents gathered outside to take advantage of the lovely weather and enjoyed a hot drink, light snack and unlimited cold refreshments. Once we had all finished our food, we had a very gentle session of chair exercises outside… After all, it was  just too lovely a day to spend inside and it was so amusing doing the session outdoors. We had such a great time; we all laughed our way through the exercises with much fun and really enjoyed socialising together in the sunshine.

Our residents all very much enjoyed being outside, just as much as our members of our team who joined them and we look forward to enjoying many more days outside as the summer draws in.

Higher temperatures and strong sunshine can pose some health issues if proper precautions are not taken so at Magna Care Centre, we are always very careful to ensure our residents are properly hydrated and suitably attired in cool comfortable clothes, sun hats, sunglasses and liberal applications of  sun cream. We know that older people are more susceptible to dehydration and high temperatures so we make sure that everyone is able to enjoy the sunshine and our beautiful gardens in a safe manner.

The Magna Care Centre is a stunning purpose-built Care Centre providing residential and specialist nursing care for up to 63 elderly residents.
