The Daily Sparkle Reminiscence Newspaper Activity

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.

Seaside Fish and Chips at “Ambleside on Sea”

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!
