August 28th, 2019

This month we had entertainment which went very well with ‘Sharon and Cab’ who interacted well with the residents and were an instant hit.

We also had entertainment on Bank Holiday Monday which was our firm favourite ‘Mood Swings’. Blending a mixture of well known songs for our residents. A good turn out from all units on these days and families also came along.

On the 21st of August we held our own beach day. We had an ice cream van come to the front of the building which residents could all go to for the choice of a Mr Whippy ice cream or an ice lolly. This was enjoyed by residents and staff. The residents then joined us in the market place, which was decorated with a beach theme including knotted handkerchiefs, sunglasses, a sand pit, and buckets and spades. We also had games which residents and their families could join in, and a sing-a-long.
