Following a residents’ meeting back in July, Regents View Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole decided to take the residents’ suggestions on board, and open a sweet shop!
To make this even more special and meaningful to the residents, activities coordinator Michelle spoke to residents about the sweets they remember eating in their childhood and then hand painted pictures of them onto the walls to give the shop a nostalgic feel.
The shop has now become a real conversation starter, with residents and visitors often stopping in reception and reminiscing about their favourite sweets and memories from their younger years.
