Its blog time again and what a lovely February our residents have had.We have been busy tossing pancakes along with our chef Darrio who kindly came and made them while Lucy & Myself along with our home manager Erin engaged in a pancake tossing competion which was great fun.We also had our residents tossing pancakes as well as enjoying them for a well desearved afternoon treat with lots of delicious toppings.
February was also the month of love and what better way to spend valentines day than with a High Tea and musical entertainment provided by Mr Dave Arnold.We all had a wonderful afternoon with plenty of cake and bucks fizz Thanks Dave for a great afternoon.Residents also engaged in various other activities and they are now preparing to get there vegetable plot growing with potatoes already on the go.
The dedicated Dementia day is also going well and i am finding it both interesting and rewarding in that we are able to find out why people with dementia do certain things and what triggers certain memories and alot of it stems back to there working lives or even there childhood.Hopefully the sun will start shining upon us soon as we already have our first trip booked in to Haskins Garden Centre.This trip was voted by our residents and is proving so popular we may have to run it twice.The calender is now underway for April and we are all looking forward to the National Carehomes Open Day on Saturday the 21st.
I hope you have enjoyed reading our blog and getting an insight into some of the activities our residents enjoy here at Wordsworth House.The activities are choosen by our residents with all there individual needs met and person centred as much as is possible.
So untill next month take care
Tracie & lucy
