Join Howdon Care Centre for a coffee and a natter
Do you want to find out more about what it’s like living with dementia? The care team at Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend open their doors every Wednesday afternoon between 1.30pm and 4pm where people can come and find out more about dementia.
You can speak to lots of different people, read some of the information from the dementia library and talk through the options about things that can be done to improve your loved ones quality of life.
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, said: “Everyone is welcome to come to our coffee and natter afternoons. There are people willing to listen and talk to you about the situation you’re in so you don’t have to go through it on your own. Please feel free to pop in one day for a chat.”
To find out more information about the café or what’s going on in the home, contact Jade Richardson, the Personal Activities Lead on 0191 2639436.

Residents from Morecambe Bay Care Home in Broadway, Morecambe and students from a nearby school have been bridging the gap between the generations finding out how the golden days compare to the here and now.
The residents enjoyed spending time getting to know the students. To both generations surprise they had quite a bit in common. The music may have changed but some of the fashions have done a full 360 and are enjoyed by both young and old alike. They even created the Morecambe Bay Art Club which will produce artwork that can be showcased across the home.
Are you looking for a care home in Morecambe? Morecambe Bay offers support for all types of care including residential care, dementia care, nursing care, respite care, specialist care and end of life/palliative care.

Two team members from Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow went the whole hog as they took part in Tougher Mudder, with the aim of raising money for the residents’ fund.
Senior Nurse Care Assistant Kellie Meharry and Carer Debbie Harris pushed their bodies to the limit as they went up against various different obstacles.
Katy Jenks, Home Manager, said: “I’m really proud of Kellie and Debbie, they did a fantastic job, and were still smiling at the end of the course. Their hard work paid off and the pair managed to raise £250 which will go towards providing special experiences for the residents. Well done again ladies. You both deserve a nice hot soak in the bath.”

Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend came together for a joint celebration as they marked two very special people’s birthdays.
The first birthday was Her Majesty the Queen, although a more important one had to be care assistant Kate turning 21.
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, said: “We decorated the home and created a Royal Throne for Kate to sit on. We also surprised her by presenting her with a throne and cape so she could be Howdon’s very own Queen for the day. We all celebrated with a lovely royal themed cream tea.”
