Oomph at Rendlesham

Residents at Rendlesham Care Centre are taking part in regular Oomph! sessions.

Oomph! is dedicated to transforming the health and quality of life of older people through inclusive exercise and activity classes that improve physical mobility, social interaction and mental stimulation.

The Oomph! sessions focus on familiar music, reminsicence-led imagery and sensory props which are particularly effective for people with dementia, these help create a fun party atmosphere that our residents look forward to.  We are finding that the more sessions we run the more residents join in, this can have a huge positive impact on the long term health and well-being.  Family and friends are welcome to join in too!

All the residents said the music was very lively and that it made them feel awake and energised. Some of the residents like to stand up when doing this others prefer to stay firm on their bottoms. But which ever way they do it they say it’s great fun!

We are looking forward to the next session.
