August 2022: Soaking in the Sun at Kingston Court

21/08/2022

"Here comes the sun.."

 Happy summer – finally the warmer weather is finally here and we couldn’t be happier here at Kingston Court. It’s been a very exciting month, our residents have enjoyed a variety of tasty treat days, including; strawberry’s & cream along with sherry for Wimbledon, a chocolate fountain day for #NationalChocolateDay and an icecream day where residents enjoyed a 99 in the garden to make the most of the nice sunny weather.

Our Stitch & Knit club continues to be a resident favourite, as they have been continuing their busy work along with our lovely volunteer Wendy. We’ve been making a range of artworks to hang next to resident’s doors to resonate with our new floor names. We have also enjoyed lots of creative activities this  month – from making rain catchers to quirky book decoupage that residents have enjoyed getting stuck into. 

Oomph!

We have been using our exciting new lifestyle platform Oomph! Wellness to come up with fun ways to promotes exercise & a variety of different activities for all our residents to get stuck into. 

Residents have been really enjoying the interactive quizzes which we play on our smart TV’s in the lounge for all to see. The Oomph quizzes have a large range of topics to cover lot different interests such as Music, TV, Celebrities, Nature, British History and different cultures. 

Birthdays & special mentions

Yvonne,Glady’s,Irene,Helen,Archie,Lilly,Alan & Joan have all enjoyed their birthday’s over the past month. We have also celebrated a lovely couple’s 70th anniversary this month. Activities & the family organised a party to celebrate the big occasion with decorations, cheese & wine, a brilliant singer & a big cake. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all who came. 

Life Stories

We are starting to introduce life stories into the home which is a booklet we can keep past & future memories of residents & also give families & staff a chance to look back on all the exciting things their loved ones did through their lives. We can also add in the new memories they make here at Kingston Court. If you would like to get involved, please contact kingstoncourt.activities@mariposacare.com
