On Sunday the residents of the home were treated to a “Seaside Fish and Chips” party. Yvonne and Michaela worked hard to organise an event, bringing the beach to Ambleside Care Home. The party started off with a lot of activities including badminton, basketball, kite flying and even a paddling pool filled with sand for a beach! Yvonne also created some poster board cuts out just like the ones you’d find on the pier. The residents really enjoyed tucking into some fish and chips which the staff wrapped in newspaper. Lunch was topped off with some lovely ice cream cones.
The residents and the family members who visited on Sunday really enjoyed the event. Several of the residents even said it was wonderful because they felt they had gone on holiday!
On Sunday we had a lovely Afternoon Tea at Ambleside. Michaela, Yvonne and Sol all dressed up for the occasion. Michaela and Yvonne even treated the residents to a dance! The residents and the families who visited really enjoyed all the work the staff did to put on the afternoon. Everyone enjoyed the dainty sandwiches, scones, french fancies and the large selection of tea.
