The sun has got his hat on - and so do we!

Residents at Lawton Rise Care Home in Stoke on Trent enjoy the summer sun

"It's wonderful to see the residents having fun socialising and being able to make use of the garden"

Residents at Lawton Rise Care Home have been making the most of the glorious summer weather by spending time outside in our garden.

We like to take every opportunity to get residents from the different lounges and floors together to socialise. With the weather being warm we decided it was the perfect day for residents to sit outside and enjoy some sun!

We even enjoyed our dinner and tea outside, plenty of sun cream was applied!

We love summer here at Lawton Rise - everyone was smiling all day.

Adele Phillips, Senior Carer said, "It's been a beautiful day, it's wonderful to see the residents having fun and socialising and being able to make use of the garden"

Resident William said, "Yes duck ive had a lovely day!"

At Lawton 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.

Lawton Rise Care Home is located in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and provides specialist dementia care.
