It’s been another week of non-stop activities at Layden Court Care Home in Maltby.
One of the first activities saw the residents pitted against each other in dominoes competition.
Jenny Hololob, Home Manager, said: “The residents had a great time trying to out play one another. Unfortunately there could only be one winner this week. Everyone is looking forward to the rematch next week.”
When they’re not competing against each other, the residents are working together to create valentines decorations to be put around the home on the day of love.
Jenny Hololob, said: “The residents enjoyed creating the decorations, they’ll be making personalised cards in the near future for their loved ones, so watch this space.”

When the residents at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham settled down for a game of French Boules, the last thing they were expecting was a Cockapoo to come and play too.
Angela Muir, Home Manager, said: “Toby had come to visit his Grandad, and after saying hello to him, he went round and introduced himself to everyone else. He saw the game of Boules and decided he wanted to play too.
“Once he spotted the Boules there was no holding him back. He had everyone laughing as his tail was going ten to the dozen backwards and forward so quickly, his whole body was moving. He completely scattered the boules everywhere and didn’t know which one to go for first. Toby is now an honorary member of the French Boules club.”

Animals have a calming effect on people. Whether you settle down and pet your cat or dog, cuddle a guinea pig or rabbit, your stresses just ebb away as you relax.
Care Homes can take advantage of Pet Therapy, which enables residents to get up close and personal with a domestic animal or something much more exotic.
At The Lodge Care Home in Killamarsh, residents, relatives and the care team welcomed Bella and her owner Courtney for some eagerly anticipated cuddles.
Janet McVeigh, Home Manager, said: “Everyone loved getting cuddles off Bella. Many of our residents had pets when they lived in their own homes, so Bella brought back some very fond memories for them.”
