Disco time for Howdon in their Oomph! session

Residents at Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend recently enjoyed an Oomph! session which is a form of exercise class designed to transform the quality of life of older people through a fun and healthy activity.

Everyone got involved and danced around to some 70s music – residents were showing off their best disco moves. Janet Storey, Personal Activities Leader at Howdon, is trained in providing the sessions and has seen first-hand the benefit it has on residents.

Ruth Todd, Home Manager, told us “We all get involved in the Oomph! sessions at Howdon no matter what your abilities are. Everyone has fun which makes doing exercise an enjoyable activity. This week we had a 70s theme so all music was from this era so we saw some fabulous disco moves!”
