Keeping residents busy at North Court

Residents and PAL (Personal Activities Leader) Sharon Coakley at North Court Care Home in Bury St Edmunds have designed their own ‘Busy Board’.

The board contains word searches, crosswords, quiz sheets and reminisce stories, and is available for residents, visitors and staff to sit and enjoy a brain teaser or two over a cuppa.

Sharon said: ‘the board has already proved a very useful idea and residents have enjoyed helping themselves to whatever they fancy doing and being mobile means we can also take the board around the home to those residents in their rooms to choose something’.

The board is replenished daily with new material chosen by the residents.

Resident Christine and family member Margaret can be seen here proudly showing off the board.
