Cumbrae Lodge ‘Gie it laldy’

Here at Cumbrae Lodge Care Home, we recently had the pleasure of attending Centre Stage in Kilmarnock to join their weekly event ‘Gie It Laldy’ (Scottish for doing something with great energy or enjoyment).

This well-being activity session is specially designed for people living with dementia who can reminisce through music, socialising and sharing laughter. Families and carers also attend and it’s a great opportunity for a friendly get-together.

Resident, Jim, said: “That was absolutely fantastic. I loved the music and meeting new people!”

Magic Moments Coordinator, Lynette, said: “We all had a great time. The music was fantastic and had everyone up dancing. The role that music plays in keeping memories alive is so important.”

Cumbrae Lodge Care Home is located in Irvine, Ayrshire and provides nursing dementia carepalliative care and specialist care to support mental health.
