Residents have lots of fun as part of Dementia Awareness Week

North Court Care Home in Bury St Edmunds recently celebrated Dementia Awareness Week with a host of events for the residents and their families.

The week began with a trip to Abbeygate Cinema to a dementia friendly showing of the musical Grease which was also a sing a long version so everyone could join in and have a lovely time. Staff at the cinema were wonderful and really made the whole outing an exceptional treat.

On Wednesday, 17th May North Courts Memory Lane Tearoom commemorated its first year anniversary and a party was held in celebration. Bucks Fizz and lots of delicious cake along with music from yesteryear!

The week of celebrations ended on Saturday 20th May with the residents’ yearly trip to Felixstowe. This is always a very popular and enjoyable event and once again the sun shone, fish and chips were enjoyed followed by delicious ice cream!

Activities leader, Sharon Coakley, said: “We have had a fabulous week and it is so rewarding and satisfying to see our residents enjoy themselves. All the team at North Court know that what we do is so important and work together to make a difference to our residents lives is what we strive to do on a daily basis.”
