You could cut the tension with a knife at Flower Park Care Home in Doncaster as residents took each other on in a number of festive themed competitions.
Whether it was a serene game of dominoes or an energetic bingo session, the residents were all trying their best to be crowned champion.
Amanda Searle, Home Manager, said: “The residents here like playing games, and once a bit of competition is added to the mix, they love it. No one wants to lose, and they are all trying to outwit each other so they can be crowned the Flower Park Champion.
“Providing activities like these can sometimes take residents back to their younger years when they may have had similar experiences with their friends and family. It really makes a difference to their lives here in Flower Park, as no one deserves to be bored. Just because you live in a care home, doesn’t mean the fun should stop.”
