Bowled over at Meyrick Rise Care Home

Resident Eddie taking aim

Recently at brighterkind’s Meyrick Rise Care Home in Bournemouth, residents enjoyed a fun afternoon trying out our new bowling equipment.

The Meyrick Rise Social Club has a monthly meeting in our own bar, and this month we decided to try a game of bowls.

Our residents and team members were joined by family and friends who all had a really fantastic time; everyone enjoyed a drink and good food and had such fun playing the game.

Lesley Brock, Home Manager, said “We had such a good time yesterday, and had so many ‘belly laughs’ from everyone involved. It was great to have a get together and enjoy a spot of bowling.”

At Meyrick Rise 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.

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