Healthy Body, Healthy Mind

Promoting engagement, fun and stimulation

Familiar with the phrase: ‘A healthy mind makes a healthy body?’ We are too – which is why Bluebird Care Mendip homecare services are designed to promote engagement, fun and stimulation. Too often people sit alone with only the television for company.

We believe that mental stimulation through brain teasers, puzzles and games can keep our customers more alert and happier with their lives.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind

Research shows that our brains are just as capable of learning in the second half of life as in the first. Brains can continue to be stimulated with simple activities such as crossword puzzles, card games, Sudoku, tic-tac toe and scrabble. Choosing to do some brain activities several times a week can keep our minds sharp and able to function at a higher level. Sometimes we just need a bit of encouragement or someone to engage with us in order to try new activities or to revisit old ones. It’s never too late!

At Bluebird Care Mendip we create a care and support plan with you that can include time for stimulation and fun as part of your homecare.
