Activities with Angie
Since joining the activities team, Angie has been busy adding some new sessions to the already varied activities list. In August she held her first ‘Reminiscence session’ to help evoke memories. She also had a ‘News of the day’ session, where residents joined her with their papers to discuss topical stories. However, the most popular session so far seems to have been the Quiz that she held, with resident’s enjoying a celebratory sherry at the end to toast their very good general knowledge.
Stepping out with Carers
We are sponsoring a scenic walk for carers & the people they care for, guided by the Ramblers, on Thurs 13 Sept at St Pauls Walden Bury. We will be taking some residents to enjoy the walk, which finishes with a social lunch and is suitable for those less agile or in wheelchairs. KHM Recruitment are also supporting us, making it their charity of the month. For more info please visit www.carerssteppingout.co.uk
