Inspirational video showcasing homecare and the powerful role of dance from Alcedo Care Blackpool

Careworker Paul, from Alcedo Care Blackpool, has filmed and edited this incredible video how dance can play a vital role in homecare for their clients and careworkers.

One client has found her mobility has increased dramatically since she introduced dancing into her routine with her careworker. She is no longer struggling to get out of bed and can now use the bathroom unaided.

Another client summed it up best saying: “I love music, I love movement, it really boosts me. I feel relieved, excited, alive. Dance brings your body to life”.

95 year-old Trinity Homecare client raising money for the Royal Marsden Hospital

All of Trinity Homecare’s clients and staff have been invited to participate in the 100k Summer Walk and client, Pam, was the first to volunteer.

95-year-old Pam, has been a client since 2019 when she found herself needing extra support, as her mobility was declining. To begin with, Pam was unable to get very far. However, with the ongoing support of Trinity’s live-in care service, Pam began to walk again, with the use of a frame.

Trinity are aiming to walk 100k to support The Royal Marsden Hospital
