A 'joyful' day in the sun in Newark

Encouraging self-care can be invaluable in maintaining positive mental health.

It might sound straight forward but gentle exercise, spending time with loved ones and socialising can seem daunting to someone who is struggling mentally.

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and we are making a concerted effort to promote wellbeing in our staff and residents.

Here are some photographs from Newark Care Home where the ladies and gents went out in the garden and just had fun together.

Moira Roberts, Care Home Manager said: "It was so lovely to see everyone outside in the sun.

"There was singing and dancing, playing games and relaxation - it was just a really joyful day and we are all very grateful for it.

"I think everyone felt a bit happier and more content after such a lovely time spent together."
