Its that time again when you get to read what our wonderful residents have been up to again here at Wordsworth House.April has been a good month here at Wordsworth as we took part in the national care homes open day which was a great success.We started planning for our open day in January and together as a team we made sure all our residents and their families and everyone who came to visit had a great day.Everyone was treated to a fabulous buffet and a massive thank you goes out to all the kitchen staff who worked so hard to produce the most amazing food.We also had entertainment from the fabulous Karl Latimer who i would highly recommend if you want a jolly good singalong.we were also joined by Lesley and her miniature ponies Harvey and Stan as well as the Deputy Mayor of Swanage Mrs Gail Green and the duo Dave Marshal and Anne. I would like to say what a fabulous team we have here at Wordsworth House and every department worked so very hard to make it a success despite the downfall of rain this didn’t dampen our spirits.
April also saw our residents decorating cakes for St Georges Day as well as the ever popular balloon tennis,dominoes in which i was taught how to play by one of our residents and for national beer day we made beer cupcakes as well as trying beers from different parts of the country.Dedicated Dementia Day is still running on a Tuesday and we are looking forward to taking some of our residents to St Marys Church in Swanage to a new group which is part of the community where every Tuesday there will be a service held which is particularly suitable for those living with Dementia and involves activities and refreshments so we are looking forward to our first visit. As always i would like to thank Di Castle for coming to do her monthly poetry classes free of charge and our local vicar from St Marys Church John.
Thankyou for reading our blog until May take care
from all at Wordsworth House.
