We had a full room again this week for our ‘Move it or Lose It’ session at Silverpoint Court Residential Care Home.
Our residents’ movement is really coming along and we are so proud of them all; it is helping not just our residents but our staff who support them getting washed and dressed, as they have more strength and movement which is fantastic.
Alan put a pom-pom on his head and we had a giggle! He said it made him feel young again with hair! How funny!
Everyone was in good spirits this week at our coffee morning and our ladies and gents look forward to their Baileys latte with cream and Lynda’s dulcet tones reading the Sparkle magazine from cover to cover!
We enjoyed debates from every section this week and there was a lot about WW2 and ration books which stirred a few memories and lots of discussion.
We had Frankie Valli playing in the background so lots of foot tapping!
We did the quizzes with audience participation, shouting out the answers. Julie looked after Joan and Dorothy and helped everyone turn the pages.
A lovely gathering for everyone and we look forward to next week.
We had a tie for our June Sparkle quiz!
Two of our residents, June and Flo, both scored 26 out of 30 – congratulations ladies! They both enjoyed showing off their medals.
Bob finally got his six medals to trade in for a prize. He was thrilled with his toiletries! Well done Bob you worked hard to get them.
We were well prepared for the Euro football this week, with hats, flags and bunting.
Tommy helped with the sweep stake; all our residents took a team from the envelope and we made a list of who had chosen what.
Some had already been knocked out of the tournament, but we still have a winner to come and we’re excited about Saturday’s England match against Ukraine.
Come on England!
