An Enfield nursing home will hold a memory walk through the borough to raise money for an Alzheimer's charity
A care home has urged locals to take part in a community memory walk to raise money for dementia research.
Bupa’s Wellington Park Nursing Home in Wellington Road, Enfield, organised the walk to raise money as part of the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk initiative.
The walk, on Friday, September 27, will start at the nursing home in Wellington Road at 2.15pm and will feature a memory quiz along the way.
Care home manager April Parrott-Carter said: “We are all in the process of getting our walking boots (and sticks) at the ready.
“Memory Walk is a worthy cause for our local people to get involved with and I’m sure everyone, no matter what their age, will have a great time at these fun, social events. We hope as many people as possible will join us to take part.”
Siobhan Drane, Bupa Care Services’ partnerships manager, added: “Research tells us that many older people don’t do enough physical activity and that the loss of strength and stamina related to ageing is partly caused by reduced physical activity. So not only will these walking events help those living with dementia but they will also benefit our residents and more mature people of the community from a health perspective.”
