Wellbeing At Larchfield

Read More

Being comfortable alone does not guarantee happiness, social interactions, friendships and meaningful conversations, no matter how small or how these are conveyed are vital. Freedom is also  a great key to happiness free to lay the table, fold washing or go for a walk be it in the garden or down to the shop. The feeling of containment can be distructive and cause negative behaviours,  so why not walk in the garden or go on an outing, a representation of real life.

Food if I don’t like whats on the menu today, if I was at home I could go and get something I liked from the fridge or cupboard, why should it be any different, after all this is my home. (Larchfield House)

Exercise, we all need this and when you do exercise your brain releases endorphins, adrenaline, serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals all work together to make the feel good factor. So even minimal exercise, such as balloon tennis or a walk along the corridor can only be good.

Laughter and fun who can live without that. Laughter can reduce stress and in turn the reduction of stress can result in a higher immune system performance.

So wellbeing is not just about making people comfortable, warm and well fed, it’s also about making them happy and fulfilled with a unique and individual approach.
