brighterkind care homes-It's Showtime

Residents at Meyrick Rise Care Home have been celebrating the arts as part of our ‘Showtime’ events happening at brighterkind homes throughout the month. 

Family, friends and members of our local community joined us to watch our very own ‘cardboard theatre’ production of The Lion King as we performed the story and its famous songs using puppets.

Guests joined in singing as residents and team members entertained the audience with rousing numbers including ‘Circle of Life’, ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ and of course ‘Hakuna Matata’.

After enjoying a jungle themed lunch, it was time to sit back and relax and let the wonderful ‘Fossil Pops’ entertain us.  These two lovely gentlemen got us singing and dancing along to some golden oldies and had us laughing our socks off at their jokes and cheeky antics!

Resident Joyce said “What a wonderful day. It’s brought back so many good memories as I went to see The Lion King in London years ago.”

One of our guests, Margaret, who lives locally added, “We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, thank you so much for inviting us. We would love to come again and see what other exciting things you get up to, your residents look so happy.”

Team member Lucie said, “We had a day filled with smiles, laughter, beautiful voices, great company and lovely food & drink – it’s safe to say it was a roaring success!”

At Meyrick Rise we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents.

The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.

Meyrick Rise Care Home is located in Bournemouth, Dorset and provides ​residential carenursing carepalliative care and respite care.
