I hope you have been enjoying the sunshine while its lasted i know our wonderful residents here at Wordsworth House have been able to get out in the garden enjoying breakfast,social mornings,pamper and polish and general coffee,teas and a good old chat.June has been a great month for enjoying ice creams as well as flower arranging,floor games and baking cup cakes for cup cake day which was on the 15th June.We love baking as our motto here at Wordsworth is make it bake it eat it.
We must say thankyou to the Reverend Andy and Brigette who give up there free time once a month to come up to Wordsworth to do our monthly church service as many of our residents are religious and it is important to be able to include spiritual and religious awareness within the home.
We have another full calender of activities in July including the long awaited poole harbour boat trip this is a volunteer run boat which is adapted for wheelchairs and is free of charge so i will be looking forward to letting you know how we got on sailing the high seas.We are also looking forward to a trip to swanage railway to sample the buffet cart for morning coffee.I hope you enjoy reading about the activities our residents do as theses are chosen by our residents as part of our person centred care here at Wordsworth House.
I would also just like to mention that i will be taking on a new adventure here at Wordsworth House which is to become a dementia locksmith.The role of the locksmith is to work along side residents and there families and to try and unlock as many memories as possible to enable us to person centre there care and activities even more by doing this we are able to find out certain trigger points which will help us to see why they may like to do certain things at certain times of the day by identifying certain behaviours we are then able to alleviate agitation,stress and therefore allow them to enjoy a good quality of life.
So until next month enjoy the summer sun and take care
