Here at Alexandra Care Home, our lovely resident Sylvia likes to keep busy and says she sometimes misses doing household chores, as of course all the washing, ironing and cleaning is already taken care of by our wonderful team members.
When she said she’d love to help out with the washing up we decided to surprise her with her own uniform so she really felt part of the team. Sylvia was thrilled to bits - her beautiful smile says it all.
Magic Moments Co-ordinator, Cathy, said: “While we would never expect our residents to help out with housekeeping tasks, one of the best things about my role is finding out what our residents enjoy doing and making it happen. We always treat people as individuals and encourage independence and even the simplest of activities that give a sense of purpose and achievement are valuable.”
Huge thanks to Sylvia, now go and put your feet up and we’ll bring you a nice cuppa!
