These boots were made for walking…

 Residents from one of our East Sussex care homes were joined by the local community of dog walkers for their first group walk. The residents’ family and friends accompanied them in enjoying the walk along a local disused railway line known as the ‘Cuckoo line.`

The sun shone as the large party took in the fresh air and the beautiful surroundings of the East Sussex countryside. The nature-filled walk evoked memories for many of the residents, along with helping to promote physical exercise and wellbeing.

The group stopped half way for a well earned rest and a refreshing cup of tea before the final walk home. The walk was so popular that plans are already in place to make it a regular community event.

Located in the East Sussex market town of Heathfield, Heffle Court is a purpose-built care home providing specialist care for 32 elderly residents living with a form of dementia. The home offers a range of care provision from residential to nursing care depending upon the needs of the individual. Heffle Court has an excellent reputation amongst residents, families and care professionals for the quality of care provided. The home focuses on therapeutic activities based on residents’ life experience and even has a smallholding, Willow Farm and teashop.
