Its that time of month again to update you with whats been going on here at Wordsworth House in activities.May has produced some decent weather which has been good as we have had our 1st big trip out to Haskins garden centre.This destination was our residents choice and they had a good day enjoying all the plants and flowers as well as the shop and a spot of lunch in the restaurant.We would like to thank the restaurant manager at Haskins for accommodating us in there ceder room as they were exceptionally busy but they went out of there way to find us somewhere we could all be together.
May also found our residents doing life skills which has been a really interesting activity as it helps to see what they did when they were in there own home as well what they are able to do now.Life skills also enables our residents to do things in the home such as dusting,laundry and the best one so far sock pairing who would have thought you can have so much fun with socks.
We were able to finally clear the vegetable patch ready for replanting so we can all eat our home grown vegetables and potatoes lovely.We also made our first visit to the all things bright and beautiful church service at St Marys church in Swanage. This is a new weekly group for anyone in the Swanage community who would like to take a loved one for a small service followed by tea and cake and activities.The group is particularly suitable for those with dementia and runs on a Tuesday from 2.30pm please note no group on June 5th.
We have also done our usual monthly activities which our residents look forward to such as arts & crafts and horseracing aswell as a quiz or 2 this month.June is looking good for activities especially the Poole Harbour boat trip which is making a return for the second year due to popular demand so i look forward to letting you know how it was.I hope we will continue to have some more sun as it is always good to get our residents out even in the garden for lunch or activities so until next month enjoy the good old British weather.
From all of us here at Wordsworth House
Tracie and all the staff.
