Everyone also got to grips with technology as they took advantage of the Red Nose Day filters on Snap Chat.

Jacqueline Bird, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had lots of fun. The photos we got using the Snap Chat filters had everyone in stitches. I was glad we could do something special for the residents and Comic Relief.”

It’s always nice to take the time to reminisce on some of our favourite things we used to enjoy, especially those from our younger years.

Residents from Whitefield Lodge Care Home in Glasgow did just that.

Angela Martin, Home Manager, explained: “The residents reminisced on their favourite football teams, movie and pop stars and other famous sports from their youth via picture cards.

“The visual cues help get the conversation going between the residents. It’s great to se their faces light up as they remember the good old days. I want to thank Hampden Museum and the Football Park for helping with this activity, everyone really appreciates it.”

Pennine-Lodge-Care-Home-Carlisle-Red-Nose-Day-2017

31 Mar 2017

Residents, relatives and the care team at Pennine Lodge Care Home in Carlisle turned a nice shade of red as they worked together to raise money for Comic Relief.

Everyone partook in a number of activities including cycling to Bratislava (or as close as possible) with Regional Manager Daniel Cleough and Home Manager Debbie Seaton leading the charge.

Debbie Seaton explained: “The cycle ride started at 6am and was a fun and easy way to get fit and raise some cash. Resident Elizabeth Frankin sprayed her hair red and the other residents enjoyed a slice of Malteaser bunny cake with some afternoon tea. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and had some fun raising money for a good cause. However, I don’t think Daniel will want to ride a bike wearing a suit again.”
