wow where has February gone !! Well we have been very busy here once again in activities at Wordsworth House.We started the month off with our monthly breakfast club which is a new activity we have introduced and it is going down very well.Every month we have a group of residents who will come and have breakfast in the dining room and together they enjoy a great morning of socializing while enjoying a variety of breakfast choices ranging from continental to a good old fry up.February was also the start of the chinese new year so we enjoyed making our chinese fans in our arts and crafts sessions.
We also enjoyed a fabulous spa morning where our lovely residents had there nails manicured and there hair curled as well as hand massages and all while enjoying chocolate,cake and nibbles another successful activity. We do keep some activities on every month as they all help with both the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents these include floor games,armchair exercises and brain training social mornings.The brain training social mornings are really starting to pay off and with a mixture of crosswords and quizzes our residents and the activity coordinators are really exercising there mental health it wont be long before where on university challenge.We also enjoyed our church visits to St Mary’s in Swanage and we had another great visit from Ruby our pet therapy dog and Phillipa who does singing for the brain as well as Dave Arnold who had our residents up and dancing.Thank You to everyone who joined us this month to entertain us.
March is now upon us and with spring in the air our residents also have a spring in there step and we have another full calendar of activities to look forward too including The Alpacas,The swanage girls guides bingo night and spring time arts and crafts.
So until next month we hope you have enjoyed reading our blog and we will see you soon
