Another month has passed us by so quickly and again our residents have being busy here at Wordsworth House with various activities.A popular activity is always the drawing room lunches were some residents are able to enjoy lunch in the drawing room listening to music followed by a group activity.These lunches are good for social interacion especially for our new residents who can feel over whelmed and it helps them to get to know other residents and staff in a smaller enviroment.We enjoyed poetry with Di Castle after our lunch which again is a great way to get residents to interact socially and relax.
October as we know is halloween and this year our residents had a fantastic day pumpkin carving,dressing up along with the staff and we had in for the first time Music from Mr Dave Marshell.We would like to say a big thankyou to Dave as our residents really did enjoy his music and had a great afternoon.Once again our residents enjoyed there usual monthly activities including baking,memories from yester year,pamper & polish,floor games and arts and crafts.
Activities within our carehome are person centered and when i plan the calender it is planned around each individual resident so that it gives everyone a chance to be able to do something they wish.However not everyone likes to do activities so it is also important that as activity co-ordinators we are able to do one to one visits either socially or within the residents rooms as this helps to prevent social inclusion.
November has a busy activity calender and i look forward to letting you know what we have being up to.So until then take care.
From all the staff here at Wordsworth House.
