Recently at brighterkind’s Bamfield Lodge Care Home in Whitchurch, residents enjoyed an afternoon of magic and comedy with Steve from Memory Lane.
Steve put on a great show involving the residents in magic tricks, themed music quizzes and brings props they can join in with! This week, the theme was ‘musicals’ and residents were given umbrellas to sing and dance along to the Gene Kelly’s hit “Singin’ in the rain”.
Residents also enjoyed Steve’s magic tricks, particularly resident Flo. Steve handed her a trick rose and she was it fits of laughter! A truly 'Magic Moment' indeed...
Pat Rose, Magic Moments Club Co-ordinator said, “Steve from memory Lane has been coming to Bamfield Lodge for the past ten years our residents love his shows. For his magic trick with Flo trick he handed her a rose and as soon as she took it from him it went floppy and she couldn’t stop laughing!”
At Bamfield Lodge 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.
