Residents at a care home in Sevenoaks were joined by the community for a cha-cha-filled afternoon of ballroom dancing.

The Care UK team at Weald Heights on Bourchier Close welcomed local people for an afternoon of tea, cake and dancing.

Chevening Financial supported the event and arranged for a professional ballroom teacher to come into the home to teach a ballroom masterclass. Residents and visitors took on a mixture of Latin and ballroom styles including classic steps such as the cha-cha, waltz and quick step.

Maria Covington, home manager at Weald Heights said: “The vintage tea dance was a huge success. Many residents enjoyed dancing in their younger years, so it was a great reminiscence activity, as well as a lot of fun!

“Since opening earlier this year, we are always looking for ways we can build strong relationships with the people of Sevenoaks, so it was a pleasure to have visitors join us for the ballroom masterclass. We’re hoping to host more events like this as Weald Heights continues to establish itself in the local community.”

Weald Heights has been designed to provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, as well as respite, end of life and palliative care.

The ethos at Weald Heights is based on person-centred care, which means residents’ values are right at the heart of the home. The team takes the time to get to know residents to ensure everything from their lifestyle plan to their daily menu suits their unique needs and preferences.
