Activities – May 2018

June 22nd, 2018

 This month, along with the rest of the world, we celebrated the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan.  Firstly, we held craft days to decorate our own table clothes for our afternoon tea which included an assortment of fingers sandwiches and cakes and we all then toasted to the happy couple with a glass of bucks fizz.

One of our Resident’s Joyce is an ex Matron from Alder Hey Hospital, who invited Joyce to a nurse day at Alder Hey which Joyce thoroughly enjoyed!  Joyce was then invited to the 70th anniversary of the NHS in July with other Residents who have worked within the NHS.

We now have students from St Edwards school coming in once a week to spend time, chat, play the piano, sing and play games with our Residents.  We also had some entertainment this month from a female artist who sang from musicals, country music and war songs, this was thoroughly enjoyed by all Residents who attended.

All our day to day activities are still going well, our trips out this month have included a shopping trip, trips to the local garden centres and Sefton Park.  We have recently introduced a book place in the Market Place for those who wish to leave or exchange books for our Residents to enjoy.

Thank you!

I just wanted to say a big massive thank you to all who sponsored and supported me.  I managed to raise a whopping £320.00 with my sponsored haircut!

Out of all your generosity I put together 10 keepsake baskets for Parents whose babies are born sleeping and also I gave a cash donation to Whiston Maternity and Special Care Unit of £170.00.

Once again thank you for your kindness.

On 7th June 2018 the Residents, staff and their families gathered to celebrate achieving a ‘GOOD’ CQC report – this was something that we were really proud of and wanted to celebrate this achievement together.  It turned out to be a real family event with lots of laughing, dancing and fun!

Our Residents enjoyed the staff trying to salsa dance and the Residents joined in, we even had a guest appearance from Poppy the Guide Dog!  Meanwhile the children were showing the staff how to dance with Maia demonstrating her wonderful cartwheels.  Baby Lucas melted all our hearts by showing off how he could stand up tall!

Poppy the Guide Dog also wowed us all with her tricks and excellent behaviour and all Residents, staff and children enjoyed her company!

However, one off our Registered Nurses, Chris, stole the show with her rendition of Shirley Bassey and Blunder Woman!!

It was a wonderful evening and the highlight for us all was to see our Residents laughing and engaging with the fun.  It was a FABULOUS way to celebrate our teams achievement!!!
