An afternoon in Uganda at Houndswood House Care Home

Houndswood House Care Home, Radlett -Resident Lesley with our guest Dee

This March at brighterkind’s Houndswood House Care Home in Radlett, we were delighted to welcome a special guest, Dee, to share her stories and memories of her native country, Uganda.

Dee wore her national folk dress and brought in handmade craft dolls and animal figurines which our residents could hold as they listened to Dee bring the country to life with vivid descriptions of the local culture, history, wildlife and music.

Our Chef Valerie prepared a special afternoon tea with tropical fruit bowls for everyone so we could enjoy a taste of East Africa.

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Kate said “Our thanks to Dee for warming us all up this cold afternoon with her fascinating insights into Uganda.”

Resident Maureen added “It was such an interesting talk and the food was delicious, I had a lovely time.”

At Houndswood House Care Home 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.

Houndswood House Care Home is located in Radlett, Hertfordshire, and provides nursing carepalliative care and respite care.
