Residents, relatives and the care team at Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend enjoyed singing along with local entertainer Michael Stevens in the sunshine.
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, explained: “We sang along to songs from over the years. We stopped off for refreshments' including a selection of ice creams, ice pops and fruit juice. A wonderful time was had by all. We were really happy to receive the phone call from Michael who asked if we were interested in him coming back to visit us since he was home for only three days after working away abroad. Residents were really happy to see him again and we look forward to seeing him again in the future.”

Garden enthusiasts Stella and Sylvie from Murdoch House Care Home in Wokingham had a fantastic time at a local garden centre enjoying a coffee and a cake, after taking in some floral inspiration for the home.
Christine Tyrrell, Home Manager, said: “Just because you live in a care home doesn’t mean you shouldn’t live a normal life. We actively encourage the residents in our care to go and enjoy things that they normally would, and we can assist where possible. Stella and Sylvie’s day out is a great example of this.”

Not only do they enjoy socialising in there, but as Val has demonstrated it shows how important it can be for their wellbeing as they can show off the skills they honed over the years.
