Home Meadow care home in Toft near Cambridge has launched ‘Dance for Parkinson’s’ classes in an effort to provide a new form of exercise for people living with the condition.

The home, part of the Healthcare Homes Group, supports residents with a range of conditions including Parkinson’s and dementia.

The fortnightly sessions are open to residents and members of the community and are led by local community dance practitioner, Paula Hain, who has years of experience in dance for a range of groups and who already runs dance and activity sessions at the home.
