Residents have been busy beavers

We’ve had a busy few weeks of activities here at Lavender Hills, with residents participating in cooking classes and drawing.

Our new resident Jean’s artistic flair was revealed after she sketched a beautiful impression of our front lounge fireplace with a Christmas theme, surprising us all with her talent. Jean named the picture ‘Home is Where the Heart is.’

Doreen and Brenda have recently taken part in a reminiscence session, whereby they read the Daily Sparkle magazine, which states what happened ‘On This Day’ throughout recent history.

The magazine is targeted at the elderly and those with dementia and covers a range of nostalgia topics and activities. The tool encourages conversation and communication between residents.

We have also been whipping up a delicious pudding in the form of Banoffee Pie using chopped up bananas and crushed biscuits. The desert went down a treat with sweet-toothed residents and was gone in no time at all.
