We all know how hard it can be getting that special card for someone at Christmas.
In Mansfield, residents at Churchfield Care Home are creating extra special Christmas cards for their families.
Katherine Davies, Home Manager, explains: “Our Personal Activities Leader Jacqueline had a nice long chat with our residents regarding any special touches they’d like to see or do this Christmas. The idea of personalised cards came and out and so far everyone has jumped at the idea to do one.
“We have set up a Christmas themed lounge, and each of our residents has had the opportunity to have their photo taken with our specialist dog, which helps soothe the residents who live with dementia.
“The photo will be put on card with a special Christmas message from the residents. This is lovely as it show how little things can improve our residents experience as well as providing something special for their loved ones.”
