Give a girl shoes and she can conquer the world
The glitz and glam of Hollywood hit Brookdale recently when we honoured the late American icon Marilyn Monroe’s 92nd birthday.
We dug out some of the actresses best films, including ‘Some Like it Hot’ and ‘Seven-Year Itch’ and celebrated the best of the fifties era.
Our residents Margaret, Joan and Marian raided their makeup bags for some lipstick and blusher and took part in a makeover session.
During the course of the afternoon, we moved through the decades with a swinging sixties themed therapeutic adult colouring in book session.
Many of our residents were reminiscing about Marilyn Monroe and discussing what their favourite films of the decade were.
