Care home residents dance and sing "Don't Worry, Be Happy"

A video from the Avenue Care Home in Fareham has been posted on social media

Residents and staff at a care home dance and sing on video to send a message to their families that morale is high and to "spread a bit of happiness".

The video made at the Avenue Care Home in Fareham, Hampshire, is entitled "This is our happy place!!" and was recorded to the music of Bobby McFerrin's Don't Worry Be Happy.

The footage, which has been posted on the centre's Facebook page, starts with staff singing in their office before the residents are shown dancing and singing along in the lounge.

Manager Lisa Hawkins said: "We have a Facebook page where we have put lots of pictures and the families have been very grateful because they can't visit their loved ones, so I thought about doing the video as an extra bit of fun to cheer up the staff, residents and the families.

"The staff are always up for a laugh here and the residents are up for a party, so everyone was happy to partake."
