Providing special meaning activities is something that Personal Activities Leader Tasha Corbett, from Bracknell Care Home in Bracknell specialises in.
One of these special experiences made a real difference to Peter and his family’s life at the home.
Tasha Corbett, explains: “Peter is one of our lovely residents here, and after getting to know him I discovered that in his younger years he used to be a very keen ballroom dancer. So in his honour I arranged our ‘Golden Toes’ event and welcomed in a dancer to help take Peter back to his twinkle toe years. Peter was in his element and enjoyed reminiscing on one of the fondest times of his life.
“It was a real joy not only for Peter and his family, but the other residents and relatives that came to the event. You could see from everyone’s face that this activity made a real difference to their lives.”
