This week at Borough Care – family visits & furry friends

By 9 February 2022Borough Care News

With 2022 in full swing and Spring on the horizon, the fun continues across our homes. Over the last few weeks, our residents have been celebrating Burns Night and Chinese New Year, seeing a few friendly faces and even squeezing in time for a pamper session. Join us as we check in with all the action from our homes. 

Getting all glammed up

Cawood House residents have been getting their glam on thanks to our wonderful hairdresser, Elaine. As you can see from the lovely smiles on their faces, everyone had a fantastic time getting their mini makeovers.

Over at Lisburne Court, Patricia also enjoyed a little bit of TLC with a face and head massage. 

Burns Night celebrations

Silverdale celebrated Burns Night with a whisky tasting and a Robert Burns-themed quiz. They also enjoyed some haggis! The residents at Silverdale love a good party, and it looks as if they celebrated the occasion in style.

Fun with furry friends

Cawood House had a visit from their favourite furry friend this week. Lisa, the Manager, surprised the residents by bringing Rossi the dog into work. Rossi brought huge smiles to the residents’ faces and gave everyone a good giggle as he played in the garden. Animal visits have such a huge impact on our residents, acting as a brilliant form of therapy – particularly for those living with dementia. 

It wasn’t just Cawood House that had a fun visit though, Reinbek also enjoyed bonding with Marilyn the chihuahua. Here are some of our favourite shots of 100-year-old Mary Prescott hanging out with Marilyn. She couldn’t stop smiling! 

Family visits

Another special visitor to Cawood House was resident Pauline’s great-granddaughter. Family visits are so important in maintaining the health, wellbeing and quality of life of our residents and their family members. We love how this image has managed to capture such a lovely moment between generations.

Flower arrangements 

A few of the residents at Lisburne Court made beautiful floral displays at their flower arranging afternoon this week. 

After all the floristry fun, Irene relaxed with a delicious cup of hot chocolate and Sheila got creative with a bit of colouring.

The year of the Tiger

Shepley House celebrated Chinese New Year by creating some wonderful crafts. They each made their own fans out of paper plates and decorated them with glitter, stickers and plenty of colourful paints. Take a look at some of their fabulous designs.

Friendships that last a lifetime

The arts and crafts continued over at Reinbek as residents celebrated Send a Card to a Friend Day. 

Resident Jeanette Stott made her card for her best friend Jean of 70-years. That’s true friendship!  

Decorating sweet treats

The Bruce Lodge bunch have had a brilliant time doing some biscuit decorating. The residents channelled their inner artists by piping beautiful patterns, shapes and designs onto some delicious sweet treats. Take a look at their creations. 

See you next week 

It looks like our residents have been up to so much over the last couple of weeks. We’re looking forward to seeing what happens next week! To stay up to date with all the fun from Borough Care, follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn
