Sylvia is a singing & dancing queen at our ‘Silent Disco’

Hungerford Care Home, Berkshire-Resident Sylvia, our singing and dancing queen!

“I’ve had such a great afternoon, my favourites were Abba!”

The Magic Moments Club team at Hungerford Care Home arranged a ‘Silent Disco’ for resident Sylvia who made a wish in our home’s ‘Wishing Well’ to enjoy an afternoon of music and dancing.

Sylvia has always loved music and enjoyed going dancing and to concerts in her younger days so we decided to invite DJ Mark Sweeting along to preside over our very own disco.

Residents were given wireless headphones so they could choose their own individual favourite tunes with Sylvia opting for Abba, Abba, and more Abba! The beauty of Silent Discos is that the music isn’t played out loud but to each individual so we could sing our hearts out and not disturb anyone!

While the music played we had a great time bopping along with disco lights flashing and it was just like being at a concert.

Sylvia said, “I’ve had such a great afternoon, my favourites were Abba!”

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Kanika said, “What an amazing afternoon we all had with such a great party atmosphere. It was funny to see someone dancing to something that you couldn’t hear yourself, never sure what your neighbour could hear!”

brighterkind runs their Wishing Well programme in all of its 70 care homes. Residents are encouraged to make a wish to experience something new or revisit an activity or place they’ve enjoyed in the past and our Magic Moments Club Team arrange for it to happen. Our Magic Moments Clubs provide a vast range of vibrant, stimulating activities that help our residents to love every day. 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 do the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
