Hi and another very warm welcome from us all here at Wordsworth House.
June has not only given us great weather but our residents have enjoyed there much awaited activity the Poole Harbour Boat Trip.We were again blessed with great weather on the day and together enjoyed a 2 hour trip around Poole Harbour whilst eating our home made picnic lunch and enjoying tea and biscuits along with a good old sing along with the crew also joining in with us.The friends of dolphin crew not only made us feel welcomed but also did a great safety brief before we set sail so we knew we were in safe hands.
June also saw the start of the world cup much to the delight of our gentlemen and they all enjoyed the opening match along with a few beers and nibbles to help cheer them along.The icecream social went down well as ever especially in this heat and we all enjoyed cones and lollies with plenty more to come.Once again we were able to make a couple of visits to the All Things Bright And Beautiful service held weekly at our local church St Marys in Swanage.This trip is not only popular amongst the residents but it is valuable to being part of the community and the fact that it is dementia friendly makes all the difference.I have seen a great change in the residents who we take to the church and not only does it make them feel part of the community but they are happy and feel valued.
We would once again like to say thankyou to our local vicar John who along with Brigette give up there free time to come and do a hymn service once a month here at Wordsworth and i know it is well received and it is also important that the religious views of our residents is taken into account.We also enjoyed entertainment from Dave Marshall which showed the movers and groovers in the house.We did hold a cake sale with all proceeds going towards the Wordsworth House residents mini bus fund and the total is steadily rising which is fabulous thankyou to everyone who has so far donated.
So has summer finally kicks in we are all looking forward to getting out more in the garden for activities and this year Wordsworth House will be part of the Swanage carnival parade so please look out for us and donate into our bucket every little helps and it all goes towards our mini bus.
Have a lovely summer and i will look forward to our next blog in August
Tracie and all the staff here at Wordsworth House
