Adeline-House-DAW-2016

30 May 2016

Adeline House Care Home in Doncaster got into the swing of Dementia Awareness week by holding a themed tea party for people to come and find out about dementia.

Gail Bullock, Home Manager, said: “Everyone who attended the tea party had a great time. We welcomed some local people from the community, who came in and spoke to our residents and their families about what it’s like living with dementia. The team looked like hostesses with the mostest as they served afternoon tea. It was a great way to raise awareness of dementia.”

Not content with just having a lovely afternoon tea, some of the residents visited a local ice cream truck to get another helping of sweet treats.

Gail Bullock added: “The residents all enjoyed their 99’s. It was a lovely simple way to end the day.”

Champion

30 May 2016

Bishopsmead Lodge Care Home in Bristol was overcome by a competitive atmosphere last week, as residents and the team went head to head during the home’s games day.

A number of games and activities were played throughout the day, with the winner notching up points based on the number of games they won.

Francaise Miles, Home Manager, said: “The residents and the team really got into the spirit of the games. I’ve never seen so much competition in the home before, everyone was trying to psyche the other out, and the banter was flowing. It was a fantastic thing to watch and enjoy.

“One of the games we played was Snakes and Ladders, a regular pastime activity for our residents. However, there could only be one champion, and that honour went to Mrs Veronica Wride. I can’t wait to see if Veronica can keep her crown at the next games day.”

Triangle-Care-Home-Pet-Therapy

30 May 2016

Residents at Triangle Care Home in Wheatley took part in some very special pet therapy, when they got to meet a Shetland pony and some birds of prey.

Pet therapy really appeals to residents as it helps them to relax.

Sue Davies, Home Manager, said: “We wanted to surprise our residents with a different type of pet therapy this week. They all loved meeting the Shetland pony, owls and a falcon, with some residents being brave enough to hold them.

“My thanks go out to the group who brought in the animals. You made our resident’s day, and gave them lots of stories to tell their families.”

Courtenay-House-Tomato-Week-1

28 May 2016

Residents at Courtenay House Care Home in Kings Lynn put their best chef’s hat on last week to celebrate National Tomato Week.

John Watts, Home Manager, explains: “The residents decided they’d make pizzas. To tie in with the tomato theme they used tomato puree as the source. The residents could choose whatever toppings they wanted to put on top of the pizza, with some very interesting combinations being invented.

“One the residents were happy, the pizzas were cooked. They all went down a treat with everyone in Courtenay House. Only a few pizza crusts were left. I look forward to seeing what other culinary delights the residents can create.”

Marlborough-Court-gardening-1

28 May 2016

Two residents at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thameside embraced nature as they helped the Activities Leader brighten up the garden.

Hayley Mercer, Personal Activities Lead, explained: “Gardening is a really good activity for our residents with dementia to do, as it can stimulate lots of the senses. Shirley and May both helped me to plant flowers in the hanging baskets and planters around the sensory garden. The garden now looks beautiful, and I want to thank Shirley and May for their help.”

Once to residents washed the dirt off their hands, Elvis entered the building to celebrate May’s 86th birthday. The residents, her family and the team all helped her to celebrate by singing and dancing to Elvis.
