On 15th December, Avery Lodge Care Home in Grantham hosted their annual Christmas fete to get everyone in the festive spirit.
The day was full of fun and games such as “water or wine” and “guess the dog’s birthday”. There was a variety of stalls selling many festive items including Christmas cards and wreaths, mince pies, cakes and jams, as well as lots of other lovely things that residents could buy to give as Christmas presents to their families. We also had Santa’s grotto where children could come and visit Father Christmas which was very successful!
We then had our Christmas raffle and enjoyed music and singing along as our Volunteer Doreen played piano!
Alison Bradley, Magic Moments Club Co-ordinator said, “It was a lovely day and nice to see everyone in the festive spirit!”
At Avery 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.
