Day at the beach for care home residents
4:40pm Monday 26th August 2013 in Local
RESIDENTS at a Bromsgrove care home had a day out at the seaside recently, without having to leave the comfort of their own home.
Staff and carers at St John’s Court Care Home organised a their own summer holiday for residents, bringing the beach to them with beach ball games, sand, sandcastle making, and candy floss. They topped off their day with cones of fish and chips, ice creams, and old fashioned sea front entertainment with a sing-a-long.
Manager Laura Wilkes, said: “Many of our residents due to their frailty are unable to travel to the seaside so we brought it to them and everyone had a fabulous day. We were also joined by family members and their children which was lovely for the residents to watch them playing in the sand.”
