To honour World Parkinson’s Day on April 11, Karen Casey, Activities Coordinator at Zetland Court, in Bournemouth, recently took part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon to raise funds for Parkinson’s UK. This research and support charity aims to improve the quality of life of people living with Parkinson’s and find a cure for this condition.
Karen joined over 16,000 people and ran over 13 miles through both the City of London and City of Westminster. She says:
I was motivated to run for this charity because one of my good friends has this disease. Up to now I have raised over £600! What an amazing experience.
Activities Coordinator Karen Casey enjoys a sunny afternoon with one of Zetland Court’s residents at the beach promenade in Bournemouth, just a short walk away from the care home.
As Zetland Court’s Activities Coordinator, Karen supports the care home’s residents by organising varied programmes of social, cultural and recreational activities. Iain Slack, the Home Manager, says:
Karen tailors all activities to meet the residents’ needs and to make their lives as fulfilling as possible. She is an esteemed colleague, highly regarded by both residents and staff members at Zetland Court.
