July Activities Summary 2014

Phew…hot, hot, hot.

We must not complain too much as a few months ago we were moaning about the rain and in a few months’ time we will be moaning about the cold !! We British love to moan about our weather but I am sure we would not like it any other way.

The staff are doing a grand job helping to keep everyone comfortable by encouraging fluid intake and being unpopular by making sure Residents Rooms, The Library, Study and Dining Room are used instead of the Conservatory which has been getting extremely hot. I think some Residents have been visiting each other’s rooms for a ‘cool chat’ I have never seen so many ice creams and lollies being passed around !

Theresa is doing a great job on her special Activity Days….a variety of things on offer….she was leading the Skittles with Nick a few weeks ago. Everyone having a lovely time !

We continue with our Monday Exercise Sessions. Lately we have not had many Reminiscence Sessions as everyone has been enjoying choosing Music to either listen or sing along to. At the moment we are into Musicals. The ladies and gentlemen choose a song from their favourite Musical from the CD’s that I bring along…..Memory from Cats…..You’ll Never Walk Alone from Carousel….. Edelweiss from The Sound of Music….On the Street Where You live….My Fair Lady….. the Surrey with the Fringe on Top from Oklahoma to name but a few. I am in my element as Musical Theatre is my passion. Not only do our ladies and gentlemen have smiles on their faces but I end up ‘floating’ home !

Keep cool
