This past December Frank came to us from another local Dementia Care home who could no longer cope with his needs. However, when Frank came to Ambleside he settled in immediately. Frank has been in the home now for six months and is a wonderful part of our Ambleside family.
On Sunday we celebrated Frank’s 85th Birthday. Frank’s wife, children and grandchildren all came to the home to celebrate his Birthday. They enjoyed plenty of birthday cake and tea.
Happy Birthday Frank!
During a recent afternoon one of our care assistants Yvonne sat down with some of our residents and went through a new reminiscence activity we’re currently trialing at the home called “The Daily Sparkle.” The Daily Sparkle is full of articles, quizzes, old news stories, puzzles, and entertainment from past eras. It is written for those with early to mid stage dementia, and is geared towards stimulating the mind and improving memory. The residents really enjoyed it, and it brought back some wonderful memories.
