Residents living in our St Catherine’s nursing home in Newcastle set aside their traditional games to try their hand at some virtual gaming.
Being past masters of skittles, bowling, quoits and even the humble yoyo, it was time to expand their talents and, with the help of activities’ co-ordinator, Zaeley, give gaming on a Wii their very best shot.
There was quite a bit of puzzlement and lots and lots of laughter as each resident took it in turn to try some of the virtual sports on offer.
At the end of the session, our residents happily gave their verdict: sports should be active, definitely not interactive. Everyone was chuffed to have had a go, though.
