Bonfire, Blankets and games for Bulwell Residents at Park House

Bonfire night at Park House means fun and games and of course some special food! 

An opportunity to get the games out again, while waiting for the fireworks to start, Shirley and Joan keep themselves amused with Hoopla, a great game to test the coordination .........

Plenty of bonfire food to be had .........hotdogs, mushy peas and Karen’s home made fudge cakes, while waiting for the fun of the fireworks.

Kirsty helps Pat and Cliff wrap up in the blankets, looks fun eh, ready for throwing open the doors to watch the fireworks.  Park House staff make the most of the bifold doors, opening up so the residents get the real bonfire atmosphere, smells, sights and sounds.
Bonfire, fireworks and sparklers get crackling in the November night and residents are able to reminisce about their many past firework nights.

Difficult to take pictures of, but we tried, i think you can get the impression of the evenings event. Activity coordinator, Karen Law, did a good job, residents and staff all enjoyed the occasion and the atmosphere was certainly authentic!

Park House is home to over 60 residents in Bulwell, where daily activities and outings take place, alongside nursing & dementia care.

Furry Friends and Fun with Flowers at Alexandra House

Variety is the Spice of Life. Activities to entertain and enjoy, at Eastgate's Eastwood Care Home;

This lady resident enjoys to see dog training in action, as rescue dog Gizmo seeks his reward.

Volunteer, Gemma from Therapy Dogs, brings Gizmo along  for the residents to interact with.

Its great for the residents to be able to pet and remind  themselves of the different personalities of the animals they may've had as pets.

Flower arranging is a great occupation and a treat for the ladies at Alexandra House, as Sainsbury's treated them with a fabulous array of flowers to get to grips with. The ladies take it all onboard and show their experience and come up with some great creations to adorn the rooms at Alex.

How lovely is a white rose, and why not take time to admire its beauty and decide where to place it?

This arrangement is going well and bringing joy to our arranger here. This all requires concentration and then a great outcome at the end.

Well done Sainsburys gifting us the flowers and our flower arrangers with their creations.

     

 

 Therapy Dogs Nationwide visit us every Monday at Alexandra House and all the residents love to have Gizmo visit.

Sandwich Making takes on a new Angle at Canal Vue

This great new activity engaged the residents at Canal Vue, as they prepare their packed lunch for an outing;

We can see that this activity is really a good one to engage residents, as seen from the following pictures. This resident shows her dexterity and the concentration required for this task.

Evidence that the outcome is good and sandwiches made by yourself are enjoyable and satisfying....

Activities Coordinator Louise Chadwick said,

'The residents loved making their own sandwiches, they were completely absorbed by the task and liked getting involved. it is amazing how something which we take for granted can become an enjoyable activity.' 

It requires estimating and accuracy and great care is taken to complete the job.

The jam controller comes into her own here ....

........The finished product is good too ........

We never did find out where they went on their outing, it was all about  'packing lunch'!

Canal Vue -  a place called home to our residents, where they can get involved in a variety of activities daily, from sandwich making to skittles, or just sitting and enjoying the lovely views...

Activities Coordinator Karen Law and Carers from Park House, decide that a visit to Bulwell Central is a good way to enjoy the autumn colours;

...............& they could be right, as residents enjoy the scenery around the river Lean and feed the ducks, before going on to the market.

.

The girls have worked up a thirst..........and get refreshed in Weatherspoons, Dorothy with daughter Carol, & Pauline.

These girls too; Stacey, her Mum and resident Ethel, sociably participating in the pub scene.
