Howdon residents ‘Bling their Zimmer’

It seemed like a remake of a TV show with a twist, as residents at Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend ‘blinged up their zimmer’ for Christmas.

Ruth Todd, Home Manager, said: “The team and residents enjoyed blinging up the zimmers and other walking aids. Each resident got in the festive spirit choosing tinsel, ribbons, bows and baubles in their favourite colours to accessorise their aid.

“One of our resident’s family thought it was such a great idea, they asked the residents to accessorise their mother’s zimmer whilst she was out. When Jean came back she was extremely surprised saying ‘she felt like the Queen.’ Now the residents have the accessorising bug, I look forward to seeing what they tackle next.”
