March has been and gone and our residents here at Wordsworth House have had a busy Activities calendar.We celebtated St Patricks Day with homemade very tasty Irish coffees which went down a treat.March was also Nutrition and Hydration week and to coincide with this the Activities team challenged the Kitchen to the Great British Blend Off where with the help of our residents it was down to them to choose the winning smoothy.Lucy (Activities) and Dario (kitchen)had to produce a smoothy with random ingredients i had bought and our residents did the taste test the result was close but eventually we had a winner and i am pleased to say it was Lucy and the Activities team that won.This was a great afternoon which was lots of fun that not only involved other departments at Wordsworth House but also showed awareness for Hydration and Nutrition and Swallowing Awareness Day.
We would like to say Thankyou to Di Castle who again gave up her free time to do the monthly poetry club and Our local vicar John who comes every month to do our Hymn Service and Holy Communion.
We had lots of fun making easter baskets and easter bonnets as well as easter chocolate cakes.Mothers day was celebrated with our residents sharing memories of there mums which then we used to make our mothers day memory tree.
We are looking forward to April where we hope you will come along to our care homes open day.This is a national event and we are open to everyone from 12.30pm to 5pm with a buffet and entertainment throughout the day we do hope you can pop in and see us.Activities are looking good for may with trips out as the weather is now starting to pick up and i know our residents are looking forward to ever popular Boat trip and the Haskins trip so until next month.
From all the staff here at Wordsworth House
