"I would like to thank all the team at Golden Toes for their very creative sessions encouraging the residents here that have a very varied mix of abilities to engage in this dance and exercise programme . Professional staff that are very caring to the needs of the residents that will change on almost every visit they make to Green Gates . All instructions are very clearly spoken to enable all that are attending to join in making this a very good social interaction session . Instructors always on time and presented beautifully we have been working with Golden Toes now for over 4 years and will continue to do so as these sessions are very much enjoyed by our residents here and promote their independence and well being."
