Baking Day

Music Day

Last week, we had a day when we gave the residents plenty of different instruments and just let them play away. It started off very noisy, with so many different instruments. Although we have recently purchased a piano, the residents preferred smaller instruments. Below is a brief video of them having fun, as they were just given the instruments. Then there is a video later of some of them dancing.

Valentines day art & craft

Over the last week, Elaine (activities co-ordinator) has used the valentines theme for the arts and crafts. The residents made numerous pieces of artwork. below are some pictures with them and their artwork.
