Hello! Welcome to the Wordsworth House activity blog for July 2019.
Wow, what a smashing month we have had, starting with our much loved and eagerly anticipated boat trip around Poole harbour with the amazing Dolphin Boat trips. Everything was in our favour, the sun shone, the picnic was perfect and most importantly of all, the residents were happy and could really enjoy the freedom of being out at sea in safe hands.
We are extremely grateful to the Friends of the Dolphin Boat Trips for making our sea excursion experience so marvellous.
July saw us hold our annual Open Day, where we invited all of our residents; their family and friends; members of the public and particularly the other Care Homes, to join us for our Rock and Roll themed BBQ. The band who came to play for us (Jurassic Rock) were fabulous and entertained us superbly, encouraging lots of dancing and singing and playing along. We had a bouncy castle for added fun and a giant Jenga game supplied by Castlemania.
The Chef’s did us proud, providing a terrific BBQ with side dishes and of course the obligatory cakes for dessert. It was another of those days when we can really appreciate the team that work at Wordsworth House, and the pride in which we hold the home and residents.
Amongst all the extra activities, we do of course continue to hold our usual activities and pastimes with entertainers Dave Marshall and Simon, who perform and interact with the residents for an hour of fun and games.
A new addition to the activity calendar, we have introduced the Sweet Trolley, which takes a trip around the home to visit all of the residents and offers extra special treats which can be either savoury or sweet. We have had some great feedback.
So, as far as August is concerned, we have another visit to Harry Ramsden and a trip to Margaret Green animal rescue centre to look forward to, alongside local trips to the seaside and enjoying the garden.
We hope you have enjoyed reading the blog; sharing some of the many activities that the Wordsworth House residents get up to and we will be back with more next month.
Keep on enjoying the summer.
Until next time.
From all everyone here at Wordsworth House.
