It’s been a month to remember here at Kingston Court, with the passing of HRH Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September touching all of our hearts and bringing back fond memories of her reign for many of our residents. In memory and celebration of her majesty’s reign we have made some fantastic memorial pieces which we will treasure for years to come.
Despite the sad news, we have continued to celebrate life and ensure our residents are living their best possible lives with us through some fantastic activities. For Roald Dahl Day we gathered in the lounge & took part in a quiz on the TV trying to guess all the meanings to Dahl’s quirky made up words.
In the afternoon, our resident took part in crafts by painting their own colourful dream jars, inspired by the film the BFG. We also had the projector on showing all the films inspired from Dahl’s books, such as Matilda, BFG and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. It was a phizz-wizzing day for everyone!
We have had lots of birthdays to celebrate over the past month and enjoyed helping our residents celebrate the big occasions. We’ve had two Margarets celebrate there 102nd Birthday, and Mary celebrated her 80th with family, residents & staff during her party.
Next month we will have various activities going on through out the home. We will be getting ready for Halloween decorating the home and making some spooktacular decorations. We will be continuing our Stitch & Knit class carrying on our big piece for reception which we’re really excited about.
