Lady Chatterley entices Ladies that Lunch in Eastwood!

Activities Coordinator for Alexandra House, Matt, takes the girls out for lunch and does 'love monsters'  with children;

 

Choosing what to have for lunch proved an exciting challenge for Winnie and Doris;

'We love it at Alex House but Its good to get out, once in a while.'

Mine's just a half, Glennis enjoyed it really....

The Lady Chatterley pub at Eastwood, did us proud and the ladies delighted in tucking-in, to their pub grub. Doris is obviously delighted, she does like participating.

Our very own intergenerational project has been going some time now and more and more individuals are benefiting.

 

.

It is win win for the young and elderly as they embark on the creative love monsters activity. Our residents have a sense of purpose after engaging with the children.

The children always learn something from their visit.

Creativitiy is often at the forefront of the activities, it is engaging and rewarding;

Mobility is often debilitating, so a little physical game helps all round and is a regular feature.

Time for a chat and interaction is really as important as all activities.

 

'Its the great team work we have at Alexandra House, which makes it a place called home for our residents.' Manager Caroline Carraher, pictured centre.
