We’re back this week with another festive installment of our weekly round-up. This week, it looks like all of our homes are really getting into the seasonal spirit. They’ve taken trips to Christmas markets, enjoyed festive performances, wrapped up in cosy jumpers and even hosted their own elf-themed event. Let’s take a look at the fun.
A trip to the Christmas markets
The Christmas festivities were in full swing this week at Silverdale as residents took a trip to the in-house Christmas market! The wonderful ALFs (Activity and Lifestyle Facilitators) spent weeks putting everything together, and it certainly looks like their hard work paid off. Residents and staff enjoyed an afternoon of treats including chocolates, mince pies, hot dogs and, of course, some festive hot chocolates too – the ALFs even organised some reindeer treats! To top off the lovely afternoon, the residents sat down with a seasonal glass of sherry.
Lisburne Court residents were treated to a live Christmas pantomime performance this week! The residents gathered in the lounge to watch the magnificent show and enjoyed singing along to a festive of their favourite Christmas songs.
A birthday boogie
Along with all of their Christmas fun, Lisburne Court also celebrated resident Joseph’s 94th birthday. To mark the occasion, everyone spent the afternoon singing karaoke and dancing! Here’s a lovely shot of Joseph opening one of his birthday presents.
Over at Reinbek, residents and staff had their very own Christmas jumper day. Everyone dressed up in their cosiest Christmas jumpers and took a few festive photos!
On Friday, Cawood House hosted some fantastic Elf Day celebrations as part of the fundraising that they’ve been doing in support of the Alzheimer’s Society. The residents and staff enjoyed a fun-filled day which included an elf hunt and some arts and crafts. Everyone had a great time getting involved, and the team were so pleased to exceed their targets!
Bruce Lodge also joined in with Elf Day by dressing up in festive costumes and creating some seasonal crafts.
